The balance between the legitimate interest of the owner or third party and the rights and freedoms of the interested party is not the responsibility of the Authority but is the responsibility of the owner himself; it is one of the main expressions of the “accountability” principle introduced by the new data protection package.

The legitimate interest of the owner or third party must prevail over the fundamental rights and freedoms of the interested party to constitute a valid basis of lawfulness.
