Data Subject Rights under GDPR
1. Right to be Informed
Data subjects have the right to be informed about the collection and processing of their personal data. This includes details about the purposes of processing, the legal basis, data retention periods, and the rights available to them.
2. Right of Access
Data subjects have the right to obtain confirmation of whether their personal data is being processed and, if so, access to that data along with information about the processing activities.
3. Right to Rectification
Data subjects can request the correction of inaccurate or incomplete personal data. This ensures that the information held about them is accurate and up-to-date.
4. Right to Erasure (‘Right to be Forgotten’)
Data subjects have the right to request the deletion of their personal data under certain circumstances, such as when the data is no longer necessary for the purpose it was collected or if the data subject withdraws their consent.
5. Right to Restrict Processing
Data subjects can request the restriction of processing under specific conditions, for example, when the accuracy of the personal data is contested, or when processing is unlawful, and the data subject opposes erasure.
6. Right to Data Portability
Data subjects have the right to receive their personal data in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. They may also request the direct transfer of this data to another data controller where technically feasible.
7. Right to Object
Data subjects can object to the processing of their personal data based on legitimate interests or for direct marketing purposes. The data controller must cease processing unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject.
8. Rights in relation to automated decision-making and profiling
Data subjects have the right not to be subject to decisions based solely on automated processing, including profiling, if these decisions produce legal effects or significantly affect them. Exceptions apply if the decision is necessary for entering into or performing a contract, authorised by law, or based on explicit consent.
