The processing of personal data for the purpose of tackling subversion is never allowed 'just like that'. There must be a clear need for that. During an investigation, the municipality continues to assess at each stage whether this need (the basis) still exists. This must go on the General Data Protection Regulation, the AVG.

More specifically, the data processing is based on the generally described tasks from the municipal law, which in particular contain the duties of care of the mayor and the municipal executive. In addition, a number of specific tasks related to public order and safety have been assigned to the mayor.

AVG

When processing personal data when tackling subversion, the municipality of Hilversum must comply with all the rules of the AVG. A number of rules have been drawn up to ensure this. The main ones are:

  • If a signal does not meet a number of requirements, including the requirement that it is possible to speak of a signal of 'undermining' on the basis of objective criteria, no investigation will be started. The signal is recorded in the database and kept anonymized after 1 year
  • Tests are carried out at each phase of the research: if the signal is 'heavy' enough, is there still sufficient need to take the research to the next phase. If the answer is 'no', the investigation will be aborted
  • At each phase of the investigation, an assessment is made: may the municipality request or share specific personal data? If the answer is 'no', the personal data will not be shared and/or no more personal data will be requested
  • If a study is terminated prematurely, the study is kept in a protected environment and destroyed after 1 year
  • If an investigation leads to an administrative intervention, the file is stored in a protected environment for 5 years
  • The processing of personal data is done in secure environments with very limited access to designated roles
