INFORMATION ON PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA
Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25th May 2018, the Environmental Project Management Agency under the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Lithuania is obliged to ensure better protection of the personal information of individuals having access to the Lithuanian Emission Trading Registry.
What is important to know about the storage and management of personal data?
Performing the functions delegated by the legislation, the Environmental Project Management Agency processes personal data mainly for the purpose of opening a new account and updating the account information. More detailed information on what personal data is collected, registered and processed is accessible here.
Personal data, as defined by the GDPR legislation, will be retained for five years after the Union Registry has no more business relation with the natural person. After five years, this data will be stored in a form that is accessible only to the central administrator of the Union Registry and can be used only for crime investigation purposes. After this extended period of time, the personal data will be removed from the Union Registry.
However, if account holders wish to make their contact information (telephone numbers and the email address) public, they must submit the national administrator a request. This data will then be published on the public website of the EUTL.
Additional information is available in the European Commission’s specific Privacy statement for users of the EU ETS Registry.
