The Master's thesis topic is the following: “The legal regime of the personal data collection and storage in the light of legal approaches of the European Court of Human Rights”.

In the light of the information society and the rapid growth of technology development the threat of an invasion of the right to privacy – both by states and by private individuals and organizations – higher than ever. In the various databases and on the Internet is collected personal information about the credit history and their medical data, information about purchases and phone calls. The ability of commercial actors and public authorities to gain access to databases without any control or with a minimum level of control is a major challenge for realization of the right to "informational privacy". Today, personal information protection concept, storage and distribution standards are in question - and, above all, in the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), which interprets through its practice the provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights and the Convention on the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic processing of personal data (Convention 103). The aim of the present work is to study the scope of the concept of "personal data" and related concepts ( "personal data", "information privacy"), the legal standards for the protection of personal data in the legal documents of the Council of Europe and the legal regime for the collection and storage of personal data in the practice of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).

Through the analysis of the legal approaches of the European Court of Human Rights and the Council of Europe documents on the protection of personal data in this thesis made an attempt to describe the features of the legal regime of the collection and storage of personal data in the light of legal ECHR positions, including at the intersection of conflicting interests in the sphere of the private and public character.
