Constitutional right to information privacy

The right to information security is a fundamental constitutional right protecting individuals from unjustified intrusions into their personal life and related personal data (every individual has the right to keep his personal information private and only he decides what information he wants to disclose and to whom he wants to disclose it). The Constitutional Court of the Republic of Slovenia made an important step towards further ensuring and protecting this constitutional right with the partial final decision No U-I-152/17-30, with which it invalidated provisions of the Act on the Tasks and Powers of the Police (ZNPPol) in the part regulating the new technical means for optical recognition of registration plates.
