Sofia. Bulgaria is ready to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation, which is the next step in personal data protection rather than a revolution, Tsanko Tsolov, member of the Commission for Personal Data Protection, told Focus Radio. He said that citizens had many new rights which they should know and the administrator should respect, and that administrators must ensure greater transparency of the whole process. Tsanko Tsolov pointed out that citizens had the right to be informed, to have their data protected, to be informed of any action performed and to be forgotten once they exit the system. “When citizens give their personal data for the first time and the processing begins, they have the right to receive information about who the administrator is, what the purpose of the processing is, and how long the information will be stored. The citizens even have the right to know the algorithm for the processing of their data,” he said. “This information can be requested at each step of the process and in no case the administrator can deny these rights,” Tsanko Tsolov noted. He further said that the administrator could disregard citizens’ rights only if there was another legal reason. The General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect today.
