REGISTERS OF ENTREPRENEURS AND PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA
Currently, in Polish law there are different regulations regarding the protection of personal data of entrepreneurs depending on whether they are natural persons disclosed in the Central Register and Information on Business Activity or are other entities capital companies, foundations, partnerships etc., disclosed in the National Court Register. Explicit data provided by the Central Registry are generally subject to the Act of 29 August 1997 on the protection of personal data. The entities that process data contained therein must perform only certain duties. None of the provisions of the Act are applied to entrepreneurs disclosed in the National Court Register. These data are not protected by the Act if they do not apply to natural persons. The personal data of natural persons disclosed in this Register are covered by the protection of the Act, if they are used for purposes other than their identification as performing functions in commercial companies or as persons appearing in the register of insolvent debtors.
