If you believe that your personal data has been collected and processed, but not according to legal provisions and/or in a disproportionate way, you can seek compensation from the public authority or private person that has processed your information. Your right to seek compensation in the case of a violation of your right to private life is stipulated in the Constitution of the Republic of Latvia.

Remember that you can request compensation for the material (financial) loss and/or the moral injury you have suffered due to the unlawful processing of your personal data.

The procedure for submitting a complaint is different and depends on the status of the person in question, namely, whether it is a public person or a private person.
