Therefore, for the benefit of the entire society of this country, a broad field of collaboration between the IGP and Association was identified, which implies:
- promoting the right to „private life“ and the concept of „personal data“ by increasing the perception of the national police of personal data principles;
- contributing to the development of a democratic society by both institutions through ensuring the proportionality of the application of human rights and fundamental freedoms, competing with the right to privacy; and
- collaboration in the process of refining and harmonising national legislation, which addresses the areas of criminal activity in order to ensure an adequate level of protection of personal data and the right to privacy.
