Also, the Agency’s representatives addressed the specificities of collecting and processing personal data in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and pointed out that the right to personal data is not an absolute right; it must be considered in relation to its function in society and should be balanced with other fundamental rights in accordance with the principle of proportionality.
