Amendment LIBE #879

Article 6 – Paragraph 1 – Point 6

(f) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by a controller, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child. This shall not apply to processing carried out by public authorities in the performance of their tasks.Legitimate interest as a legal ground for processing can only be applied in a restrictive way, to the extent that it is strictly necessary for the purpose of the legitimate interest, and when no other legal ground is available for the specific purpose. The data controller shall in that case inform the data subject explicitly and separately. The controller shall also publish the reasons for believing that its interests override the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject.
