Guaranteeing proper mechanisms for protecting privacy and information about oneself is one of the biggest challenges currently facing the legislator. This is a particularly difficult task, given the various concepts about what privacy is, what aspects of life should be considered intimate for the individual, and where the border between the protection of privacy and information autonomy lies. The practice of applying the law in this case significantly differs from reality, which can be seen when analysing the rulings of the Constitutional Tribunal. This issue takes on a special meaning when the right to privacy either concerns particularly sensitive information for the individual or stands in opposition to other legally protected goods. For this reason, I considered it appropriate to take a closer look at the jurisprudence of the Constitutional Tribunal regarding the protection of privacy and informational autonomy of an individual in the context of information about his state of health, protection of security and public order, as well as the openness of public authorities.
