en Consent should not provide a valid legal ground for the processing of personal data, where there is a clear imbalance between the data subject and the controller. This is especially the case where the data subject is in a situation of dependence from the controller, among others, where personal data are processed by the employer of employees' personal data in the employment context. Where the controller is a public authority, there would be an imbalance only in the specific data processing operations where the public authority can impose an obligation by virtue of its relevant public powers and the consent cannot be deemed as freely given, taking into account the interest of the data subject.

de Die Einwilligung liefert keine rechtliche Handhabe für die Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten, wenn zwischen der Position der betroffenen Person und des für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen ein klares Ungleichgewicht besteht. Dies ist vor allem dann der Fall, wenn sich die betroffene Person in einem Abhängigkeitsverhältnis von dem für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen befindet, zum Beispiel dann, wenn personenbezogene Daten von Arbeitnehmern durch den Arbeitgeber im Rahmen von Beschäftigungsverhältnissen verarbeitet werden. Handelt es sich bei dem für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen um eine Behörde, bestünde ein Ungleichgewicht nur bei Verarbeitungsvorgängen, bei denen die Behörde aufgrund ihrer jeweiligen obrigkeitlichen Befugnisse eine Verpflichtung auferlegen kann und deshalb die Einwilligung nicht als ohne Zwang abgegeben gelten kann, wobei die Interessen der betroffenen Person zu berücksichtigen sind.

fr Le consentement ne devrait pas constituer un fondement juridique valable pour le traitement de données à caractère personnel lorsqu'il existe un déséquilibre manifeste entre la personne concernée et le responsable du traitement, surtout lorsque la première se trouve dans une situation de dépendance par rapport au second, notamment lorsque les données à caractère personnel concernent le salarié et sont traitées par son employeur dans le cadre de leur relation de travail. Lorsque le responsable du traitement est une autorité publique, il n’y a déséquilibre que dans le cas d’opérations de traitement spécifiques dans le cadre desquelles l’autorité publique peut, en vertu de ses prérogatives de puissance publique, imposer une obligation. Dans ce cas, le consentement ne saurait être réputé librement consenti, compte tenu de l’intérêt de la personne concernée.

es El consentimiento no debe constituir un fundamento jurídico válido para el tratamiento de datos de carácter personal cuando exista un desequilibro claro entre el interesado y el responsable del tratamiento. Así sucede especialmente cuando el primero se encuentra en una situación de dependencia respecto del segundo, por ejemplo, cuando los datos personales de los trabajadores son tratados por el empresario en el contexto laboral. Cuando el responsable del tratamiento sea una autoridad pública, solo habría desequilibrio en las operaciones específicas de tratamiento de datos en las que la autoridad pública puede imponer una obligación en virtud de sus poderes públicos correspondientes, sin que pueda considerarse el consentimiento libremente dado, teniendo en cuenta el interés del interesado.

pt O consentimento não deve constituir um fundamento jurídico válido para o tratamento de dados pessoais se existir um desequilíbrio manifesto entre o titular dos dados e o responsável pelo tratamento, especialmente se o primeiro se encontrar numa situação de dependência em relação ao segundo, em especial quando os dados pessoais são tratados pelo seu empregador no contexto da relação laboral. Sempre que o responsável pelo tratamento é uma autoridade, só haveria desequilíbrio em caso de operações de tratamento específicas no âmbito das quais a autoridade possa, por força das suas prerrogativas de poder público, impor uma obrigação. Neste caso, o consentimento não seria considerado livremente consentido, tendo em conta o interesse do titular dos dados.

it Il consenso non costituisce una valida base giuridica per il trattamento dei dati personali quando esiste un evidente squilibrio tra l’interessato e il responsabile del trattamento. Ciò avviene, in particolare, quando l’interessato si trova in situazione di dipendenza dal responsabile del trattamento, tra l’altro quando i dati personali di un dipendente sono trattati dal suo datore di lavoro nel contesto dei rapporti di lavoro. Se il responsabile del trattamento è un’autorità pubblica, vi è squilibrio soltanto nelle specifiche operazioni di trattamento in cui l’autorità pubblica può imporre un obbligo in forza dei suoi pubblici poteri; in tal caso, il consenso non può essere considerato libero, tenuto conto degli interessi dell’interessato.

cs Vyjádření souhlasu nepředstavuje platný právní důvod zpracování osobních údajů, pokud mezi postavením subjektu údajů a správce existuje značná nerovnováha. Jedná se zejména o případ, kdy je subjekt údajů závislý na správci, například pokud osobní údaje zaměstnanců v souvislosti se zaměstnáním zpracovává zaměstnavatel. Pokud je správce orgánem veřejné moci, došlo by k nerovnováze pouze při zpracovávání specifických údajů, při němž orgán veřejné moci může na základě svých příslušných veřejných pravomocí uložit povinnost a souhlas nemůže být považován za svobodně vyjádřený souhlas, přičemž je třeba vzít v úvahu zájmy subjektu údajů.

da Samtykke bør ikke udgøre et gyldigt retligt grundlag, hvis der er en klar skævhed mellem den registrerede og den registeransvarlige. Dette er navnlig tilfældet, når den registrerede befinder sig i et afhængighedsforhold til den registeransvarlige, bl.a. når person­oplysninger behandles af arbejdsgiveren som led i behandlingen af ansattes personoplysninger i et ansættelsesforhold. Hvis den registeransvarlige er en offentlig myndighed, vil der kun være en skævhed i forbindelse med den specifikke databe­handling, hvis den offentlige myndighed som følge af dens relevante offentlige beføjelser kan pålægge en forpligtelse, og samtykket ikke kan skønnes at være afgivet frivilligt under hensyntagen til den registreredes interesser.

sv Samtycke bör inte utgöra giltig rättslig grund för behandling av personuppgifter om det finns en betydande obalans mellan den registrerade och den registeransvarige. Detta är särskilt fallet när den registrerade befinner sig i ett beroendeförhållande till den registeransvarige, bl.a. när arbetstagares personuppgifter behandlas av arbetsgivare inom ramen för en anställning. Är den registeransvarige en myndighet torde obalans endast uppkomma vid specifika uppgiftsbehandlingar där myndigheten i kraft av sina offentliga befogenheter kan ålägga skyldigheter och samtycket, med hänsyn tagen till den registrerades intresse, inte kan anses ha lämnats frivilligt.

imco Amendment #

(34) Consent should not provide a valid legal ground for the processing of personal data, where there is a clear imbalance between the data subject and the controller. This is especially the case where the data subject is in a situation of dependence from the controller, among others, where personal data are processed by the employer of employees' personal data in the employment context. Where the controller is a public authority, there would be an imbalance only in the specific data processing operations where the public authority can impose an obligation by virtue of its relevant public powers and the consent cannot be deemed as freely given, taking into account the interest of the data subject. However, imbalance between the controller and the data subject is not a problem where Union or Member State law has made the data subject's consent a specific condition for a specific type of processing of the personal data or set of processing operations.
