Croatia: Government launches Coronavirus tracing app

The Government of the Republic of Croatia ('the Government') announced, on 27 July 2020, that it had launched the Croatian 'Stop COVID-19' contact tracing app. In particular, the Government outlined that the app is voluntary, transparent, and temporary, as well as that it uses temporary and anonymous data for notification of COVID-19 ('Coronavirus') exposure. In addition, the Government highlighted that the app uses Bluetooth technology, as well as that it does not collect personal data and ensures cross-border interoperability. Moreover, the Government recalled that the app was assessed by the Personal Data Protection Agency ('AZOP') in order to ensure its full compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR').
