Regolamento europeo in materia di protezione dei dati personali

Corte dei Conti Dati Sanitari Diffusi Illecitamente Online

Corte dei Conti Dati Sanitari Diffusi Illecitamente Online

Nuovo Regolamento europeo in materia di protezione dei dati personali.

Il testo – pubblicato sulla Gazzetta Ufficiale dell’Unione Europea (GUUE) lo scorso 4 maggio – diventerà definitivamente applicabile in via diretta in tutti i Paesi UE a partire dal 25 maggio 2018, quando dovrà essere garantito il perfetto allineamento fra la normativa nazionale in materia di protezione dati e le disposizioni del Regolamento.

Il Regolamento è parte del cosiddetto Pacchetto protezione dati, l’insieme normativo che definisce un nuovo quadro comune in materia di tutela dei dati personali per tutti gli Stati membri dell’UE e comprende anche la Direttiva in materia di trattamento dati personali nei settori di prevenzione, contrasto e repressione dei crimini. La Direttiva, pubblicata in GUUE insieme al Regolamento e vigente dallo scorso 5 maggio, dovrà essere recepita dagli Stati membri entro 2 anni.

Sul sito del Garante per la protezione dei dati personali è disponibile una pagina informativa (http://www.garanteprivacy.it/pacchettoprotezionedati) che ha illustrato finora l’iter normativo del Pacchetto e che sarà progressivamente arricchita con aggiornamenti e materiali informativi e di approfondimento.

Defamation penalty in Italy needs to be considered for its effect on free expression, OSCE media representative says

83944VIENNA, 26 May 2016 – The Italian Senate should consider pending legislation that would increase the maximum penalty to 9 years in jail for criminally defaming elected officials and judges in light of its effect on free expression, OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja Mijatović said today.

The current maximum penalty is 6 years.

“This initiative is detrimental because jail terms are a disproportionate punishment for defamation,” Mijatović said. “To increase the penalty creates a chilling effect that is harmful to investigative journalism.”

Defamation laws should not be tools for politicians and those in authority to silence critical voices, she added, noting that public figures should withstand a higher degree of scrutiny and criticism because of their public roles.

Mijatović has long campaigned for the complete decriminalization in the OSCE region.

The OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media observes media developments in all 57 OSCE participating States. She provides early warning on violations of freedom of expression and media freedom and promotes full compliance with OSCE media freedom commitments.

Più Privacy sulla Salute anche nelle Sentenze Online

Corte dei Conti Dati Sanitari Diffusi Illecitamente Online

“Appare pertanto illecita la diffusione delle generalità del ricorrente, con riferimento ad un provvedimento giurisdizionale, ove si indicava il suo stato di salute e le sue invalidità… Relativamente ai dati idonei a rivelare lo stato di salute, esiste uno specifico divieto di diffusione anche per i soggetti pubblici.
La salvaguardia dei diritti degli interessati attraverso un oscuramento delle loro generalità, non pregiudica la finalità di informazioni giuridica, ma può risultare necessaria nella prospettiva di un bilanciamento dei diversi interessi per tutelare la sfera di riservatezza dei soggetti coinvolti.
Più specificamente nel settore civile vanno omessi, anche in mancanza di richiesta: le generalità, nonché altri dati identificativi anche relativi a terzi…”

Cass. Civ. n. 10510, 10511, 10512, 10513 del 20.05.2016 Sentenza di "San Bernardino" (350 download)

Con le quattro sentenze “di San Bernardino” (10510, 10511, 10512, 10513) del 20.05.2016 in commento la Corte Suprema di Cassazione ha accolto con rinvio il ricorso di ben 105 ricorrenti dello Studio Legale Bullaro lesi nella loro sfera privata a seguito della pubblicazione sul sito internet della Corte dei Conti Sez. Giur. Palermo, dei loro dati personali (sanitari, invalidità etc.) unitamente alle generalità complete nelle sentenze che li riguardavano.

La normativa italiana prevede un sistema per la tutela della privacy nella pubblicazione delle sentenze previsto dell’art. 52 concernente la finalità di conoscenza e diffusione dei dati giudiziari.
Secondo tale sistema si provvede, in particolare, all’oscuramento obbligatorio dei dati «quando riguarda minori, o provvedimenti di status della famiglia». Tali oscuramenti possono essere effettuati anche per disposizione d’Ufficio, ove il Giudice lo ritenga opportuno.
I clienti dello studio hanno vinto il ricorso, senza tuttavia ottenere ancora la quantificazione del risarcimento del danno.
Tutti coloro i quali vogliono oscurati i propri i dati evitando la diffusione nelle banchi date e su internet possono farne richiesta
L’oscuramento o la cancellazione, però, in base alle Sentenze della Cassazione, deve avvenire d’ufficio quando riguarda dati sanitari.

OSCE/ODIHR Director Link urges states to recognize serious harm female genital mutilation does to both women and societies at large

WARSAW, 5 February 2016 – Michael Georg Link, Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), today called on OSCE participating States to strengthen their responses to female genital mutilation as a form of violence against girls and women.

“In September 2015, at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit, the 193 Member States, including OSCE participating States, unanimously agreed on the goal of eliminating female genital mutilation by 2030,” Director Link said. “Today, ahead of tomorrow’s International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation, as on every other day, states have to be conscious of their obligation to work systematically to eradicate female genital mutilation, a form of violence used to harm women, both psychologically and physically, and to embed patriarchy.”

While welcoming the measures many participating States have already introduced in their legal and policy frameworks to prevent and combat female genital mutilation, the ODIHR Director said that more work should be done by governments to ensure their frameworks are in complete compliance with international standards and OSCE commitments in this field.

“Participating States need to take a holistic approach to the problem, not only through efforts to prevent the practice, but also to raise awareness among both women and men of its horrible effects, to provide medical and psychological assistance to victims, and to facilitate the sharing of effective practices in combating these cruel acts,” Director Link said.
