11. DYNAMARINe legal basis for processing the POAC's personal data

DYNAMARINe has a legitimate interest in processing POAC personal data in order to provide risk assessment services to its clients. This includes the collection of data on a POAC for a specific STS operation, the storage of that data in OSIS and the provision of aggregated statistics on POACs to other clients when undertaking risk assessments. Processing the POAC's personal data is necessary in order to provide the risk assessment services – data relating to specific individuals is required so that the risk profiles of those individuals can be analysed, in accordance with IMO rules and regulations. The type of processing carried out is unlikely to cause harm to the POAC, particularly as no special category or criminal convictions data is processed, and the data is used only for risk assessments. POACs work in an industry that is subject to IMO rules and regulations and would therefore reasonably expect their personal data to be processed for risk assessment purposes. On the basis of applicable GDPR article 6, there is no need for DYNAMARINe to seek the consent from the relevant individuals.

12. Shipowner legal basis for processing the POAC's personal data

The shipowner also has a legitimate interest in processing POAC personal data as it has a legal obligation to carry out risk assessments relating to STS operations. Pursuant to applicable IMO rules and regulations, these risk assessments require the consideration of the POAC's personal data. As stated at section 11, above in relation to DYNAMARINe, the processing does not prejudice the POAC's rights or cause them harm, and would not be unexpected.

Shipowners will not need to obtain consent from individual POACs in respect of the processing activities carried out, according to article 6 of GDPR.
