Prior-check Opinion concerning the individual performance indicators for the annual evaluation of staff members at the Community Plant Variety Office (CPVO) (Case 2016-0417)
Personal data collected during an employer's core business activities are sometimes further used to produce productivity reports of employees to feed the evaluation process. This further use of personal data is a change of the initial purpose (linked to the core business) and should therefore be based on specific and explicit internal rules. Employees must be made aware of the change of purpose to ensure fair processing of their personal information. In addition, this information can only be used as a support tool for the annual evaluation of employees and not as the only source to feed the evaluation process.
