“Safeguarding of children and of individuals at risk

 

3A  (1)

(a)    

the processing is necessary for the purposes of—

 

(i)    

protecting an individual from neglect or physical, mental or

 

emotional harm, or

 

(ii)    

protecting the physical, mental or emotional well-being of an

 

individual,

 

(b)    

the individual is—

 

(i)    

aged under 18, or

 

(ii)    

aged 18 or over and at risk,

 

(c)    

the processing is carried out without the consent of the data subject for

 

one of the reasons listed in sub-paragraph (2), and

Data Protection Bill-[Lords], continued

 
 

      (2)  

The reasons mentioned in sub-paragraph (1)(c) are—

 

(a)    

in the circumstances, consent to the processing cannot be given by the

 

data subject;

 

(b)    

in the circumstances, the controller cannot reasonably be expected to

 

obtain the consent of the data subject to the processing;

 

(c)    

the processing must be carried out without the consent of the data

 

subject because obtaining the consent of the data subject would

 

prejudice the provision of the protection mentioned in sub-paragraph

 

(1)(a).

 

      (3)  

For the purposes of this paragraph, an individual aged 18 or over is “at risk” if

 

the controller has reasonable cause to suspect that the individual—

 

(a)    

has needs for care and support,

 

(b)    

is experiencing, or at risk of, neglect or physical, mental or emotional

 

harm, and

 

(c)    

as a result of those needs is unable to protect himself or herself against

 

the neglect or harm or the risk of it.

 

      (4)  

In sub-paragraph (1)(a), the reference to the protection of an individual or of

 

the well-being of an individual includes both protection relating to a particular

 

individual and protection relating to a type of individual.”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

Schedule 10 makes provision about the circumstances in which the processing of special

 

categories of personal data is permitted. This amendment adds to that Schedule certain processing

 

of personal data which is necessary for the protection of children or of adults at risk. See also

 

Amendments 85 and 116.

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This amendment and Amendments 51 and 54 enable the Information Commissioner to obtain

 

information in order to work out whether processing is carried out in the course of purely personal

This amendment secures that the reference to “processing” in the new paragraph (b) inserted by

 

Amendment 52 includes all types of processing of personal data. It disapplies Clause 3(14)(b),

 

which provides that references to processing in Parts 5 to 7 of the bill are usually to processing to

 

which Chapter 2 or 3 of Part 2, Part 3 or Part 4 applies.
