Basic Principles for the Processing of Personal Data for the Containment of the Spread of Covid-19 Infection

In accordance with the Cabinet Regulation No. 360 of 9 June 2020, „Epidemiological Safety Measures for the Containment of the Spread of Covid-19 Infection” (hereinafter – Provisions), in events organised in a museum, a library, a culture centre, an exhibition hall, an open-air stage, a theatre building, a concert hall, a cinema and an outdoor space of the aforementioned sites, if visitors stay at fixed and personalised seats during an event, no more than two persons who are not members of the same household and no more than four persons who are members of the same household may be seated next to each other. Between respectively every two or four adjacent seats a distance of one meter shall be maintained or a protective barrier shall be provided. When leaving the seat, a person shall follow the provisions for the two-meter physical distancing.

In accordance with the provisions mentioned above, in order to ensure the monitoring of the health condition of persons and to identify contact persons, the recipients of public services shall be registered to the extent possible.

On the basis of the above, when purchasing tickets with fixed and personalised seats, SIA „Biļešu paradīze” is entitled to obtain and transfer the name, surname and contact telephone (hereinafter – Personal Data) of the visitors to the event organisers. In addition, it is recommended to provide an e-mail address, however the provision of these data is voluntary.

The ticket buyer, who indicates visitors’ data, is obliged to inform the visitors that the visitor’s telephone number may be used to inform the visitor on the cancelled and postponed events (for the purpose of reducing unnecessary movement and crowding of the persons in cases of cancelled events during the circumstances of Covid-19).

Personal Data will be stored for as long as the need to store this data is lost, but not exceeding the time limits specified in the existing laws and regulations or by the Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

The legal basis for the processing of the above mentioned Personal Data is Section 6(1)(e) of the Regulation, laying down that the processing of data is lawful if the processing is necessary to execute the task performed in the public interest or by exercising the official powers lawfully granted to the Controller.

SIA „Biļešu paradīze” is considered to be the Processor of the aforementioned Personal Data and not the Controller, therefore more detailed information on the processing of Personal Data can be received from the particular organiser of the event.

Having due regard to the fact that the legal framework related to Covid-19 is frequently changed, please follow the changes of laws and regulations, but on our part, we undertake to regularly update the data processing principles concerning Covid-19 published here.
