"Madam President, freedom and security are essential elements for the implementation of any current democratic legal structure, in which freedom uses security as the most valued tool for protection. The transfer of Passenger Name Record (PNR) data to third countries is an essential element of the transnational fight against terrorism and organised crime. It should be based on scrupulous compliance with EU rules on the protection of personal data, as laid down in Articles 7 and 8 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights and Article 16 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. For this reason, we must welcome the communication from the Commission on the global approach to transfers of PNR data to third countries and its recommendations that the Council authorises the opening of negotiations in this area with Australia, Canada and the United States, as both instruments take up Parliament’s concerns regarding security, defending fundamental rights and protecting personal data. However, it should be pointed out that PNR data cannot be used for profiling, which is why the Commission sought to clarify – in my view, successfully – the differences between the expressions ‘risk assessment’ and the aforementioned profiling. Moreover, the Commissioner said that checking will be done by humans rather than being automated. Well, we will see what happens. Madam President, we need a single, general, legally binding agreement to protect personal data. This top-level agreement must be implemented through sectoral agreements in order to combat terror and organised crime. As regards the need, Madam President, it is obvious. As regards proportionality, it must, in all cases, be an inalienable requirement."@en1
