Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and Personal Data Protection, based on complaints by a large number of citizens, in which they stress that they have received from „EPS SNABDEVANJE" (EPS SUPPLY) a letter requesting delivery of accurate unique citizens' identification number (UCIN), as well as they have been informed that a court procedure shall be initiated against them for compensation of damages in case of failure to do so,has implemented surveillance over implementation of Personal Data Protection Act by„EPS SNABDEVANJE" (EPS SUPPLY). Aftergaining insightinto complete documentation, he concluded that neither the Energy Act or any other Law contains provisions on citizens being obliged to deliver UCIN in order to close the contract on sales of electricity with „EPS SNABDEVANJE" (EPS SUPPLY), nor for potential initiation of the enforced debt collection procedure by„EPS SNABDEVANJE" (EPS SUPPLY), which were the reasons for this claim quoted by „EPS SNABDEVANJE" (EPS SUPPLY).

Lacking the legal base for processing UCIN for these purposes, there should be a consent, i.e. acceptance by that individual. In order to have valid consent, it is necessary to be given freely, which is here not the case, because there is a prospective initiation of court procedure for compensation of damages, and that is of some vague, undefined damages.

Aftercompleted surveillance, the Commissionersent a Warning Notice to „EPS SNABDEVANJE" (EPS SUPPLY), that they are performing illicit processing of UCIN and that within 8 days from the date of receipt of the Warning Notice they shall be obliged to inform the Commissioner and its users by a public statement -end buyers of electricity, about the measures implemented for eliminating irregulaties.
