Deliberation No. 2006-138 of 9 May 2006 deciding on the exemption from declaring processing for purposes of information or external communication.

9 May 2006 – Theme (s):

Official Journal No. 128 of 3 June 2006

The National Commission on Informatics and Liberty (CNIL),

Having regard to Council of Europe Convention No. 108 of 28 January 1981 for the protection of individuals with regard to automatic processing of personal data; Having regard to Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data; Having regard to Law No. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 relating to informatics, files and freedoms, amended by Law No. 2004-801 of 6 August 2004 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, specifically Article 24.II; Having regard to Decree No. 2005-1309 of 20 October 2005 adopted in implementation of Law No. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 relating to informatics, files and freedoms, amended by Law No. 2004-801 of 6 August 2004; After hearing Mrs Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin, commissioner, in her report, and Mrs Pascale Compagnie, government commissioner, in her observations;

The following observations:

Processing for purposes of information or external communication are common processes that do not seem likely to adversely affect the privacy of individuals as part of their regular use. The Commission therefore considers it appropriate to apply the provisions of Article 24.II of the amended Law of 6 January 1978, and relieve these processes from any prior declaration formality.
