The Czech Data Protection Act is not a complex data protection act, but it includes several exceptions and clarifications of GDPR rules within the national context. The exceptions include reduced informing requirements and lower administrative fines for specific controllers as well as exceptions for exercising certain data subject rights, etc. The clarifications include age specification for child consent, processing of personal data – i.e. if it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation – and the performance of a task carried out in the public interest, etc.

In the following, you will find the additions and derogations to the GDPR on the most important topics of personal data protection for companies. If topics are not linked, there are no derogating or specifying provisions in the national data-protection law.
