In case of violation of the provisions of the Act on Personal Data the data subject may submit a complaint by the Inspector General for Personal Data Protection (GIODO). After having conducted a proceedings in the case, in the event of breach of the provisions the Inspector General shall, by means of an administrative decision, order to restore the proper legal state. Regardless of the above, the Inspector General, on the basis of the information collected in the course of the explanatory proceedings conducted in the case initiated by a complaint, shall take ex officio (and not on the basis of a complaint) an autonomous (not dependent on the complaint’s contents) decision on possible use of the rights entrusted to it in Art. 12 point 5, Art. 17 and Art. 19 of the Act on Personal Data Protection. Within the competence specified by the above mentioned provisions, the Inspector General can direct to the entity whom the complaint concerns an address aimed at improving the protection of personal data (Art. 12 point 5), can demand initiating disciplinary or other proceedings provided for by law against persons guilty of negligence in the processing of personal data (Art. 17) or shall notify a proper prosecuting body about suspicion of commission of crime (Art. 19).

ATTENTION: A complaint must be submitted in Polish.
