In particular, this will apply to situations in which a passenger who is lacking a valid travel document (ticket) fails to cooperate with the authorities – which then involve the Police of the Czech Republic and other entities - processors or controllers of personal data - cooperating in the recovery of outstanding receivables and state administration bodies.

Your personal data is generally processed for the time necessary to fulfill the purposes of the processing. The Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) will delete personal data as soon as practical after the purposes for which the personal data was processed cease to exist.

We process your personal data for the period of time, which is determined to be necessary on the basis of the following criteria:

  • We process your personal data for the period of the obligation to pay the fare, surcharges and accessories, or for the period of the obligation to pay any other related performance, or for the period imposed on us by law.
  • Litigation and other proceedings: Should the processing of your personal data be relevant to any proceedings in which the Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) is a party (or intervener), we will retain your personal data for the entire duration of these proceedings and for any related subsequent and ancillary proceedings.

In general, the personal data of passengers without a valid travel document are retained for a period of 5 years from the date of payment of the obligation (fare and fare surcharges) or from the date of the end of the court or other enforcement proceedings – in other words, for the expiration of any period of time allowed for the handling of appeals and other related procedural processes. In the electronic records, personal data is anonymized after the expiration of a three-month period following the payment of the related obligations (debt).

Personal data is processed both manually and electronically. Personal data is not made available to anyone except the recipients listed above. The handing over of such information to related parties – law firms involved in the recovery of outstanding obligations (debts) – is done in accordance with strict data security standards.
