2 PURPOSE SPECIFICATION
Personal data should be processed for specified purposes, which are consistent with the mandates of the United Nations System Organization concerned and take into account the balancing of relevant rights, freedoms and interests. Personal data should not be processed in ways that are incompatible with such purposes.
3 PROPORTIONALITY AND NECESSITY
The processing of personal data should be relevant, limited and adequate to what is necessary in relation to the specified purposes of personal data processing.
Personal data should only be retained for the time that is necessary for the specified purposes.
Personal data should be accurate and, where necessary, up to date to fulfil the specified purposes.
Personal data should be processed with due regard to confidentiality.
Appropriate organizational, administrative, physical and technical safeguards and procedures should be implemented to protect the security of personal data, including against or from unauthorized or accidental access, damage, loss or other risks presented by data processing.
Processing of personal data should be carried out with transparency to the data subjects, as appropriate and whenever possible.
