Abstract: The importance and impact of international law in the field of personal data protection has undeservedly remained in the shadow of European Union law in recent years. The public also often overlooks the interaction between international law and European Union law, which very well mirrors the development of Convention No. 108, in particular its application and amendment. The article reflects this interaction of legal regulation in the field of personal data protection, especially in connection with specific amendments to Convention No. 108 introduced by the amending protocol (CETS No. 223).
