2. Osebni podatki, ki se nanašajo na zdravje ali spolno življenje, ne smejo biti računalniško obdelani, razen če notranja zakonodaja pogodbenic ne zagotavlja ustreznega varstva. Enako velja za osebne podatke v zvezi s kazenskimi obsodbami.
3. Sprejeti je treba ustrezne varnostne ukrepe za varstvo osebnih podatkov, hranjenih v računalniških zbirkah podatkov, pred nepooblaščenim uničenjem ali nenamerno izgubo ter tudi pred nepooblaščenim dostopom, spreminjanjem ali razširjanjem.
4. Vsaki osebi je treba omogočiti:
a) da ugotovi, ali obstaja računalniška zbirka osebnih podatkov, njene glavne namene ter kdo je upravljavec zbirke podatkov in njegovo običajno prebivališče ali sedež;
b) da je v razumnih presledkih in brez prevelike zamude ali stroškov obveščena o tem, ali so osebni podatki, ki se nanašajo nanjo, shranjeni v računalniški zbirki podatkov, in da ji take podatke sporočijo v razumljivi obliki;
