GDPR: Individual Rights

The new GDPR regulations are designs to give power back to the individual, with regards to their personal data. With that in mind, here’s a brief rundown of the rights of individuals when it comes to their information.

  • The right to be informed Your obligation to provide ‘fair processing information’, typically through a privacy notice, with transparency over how you use personal data.
  • The right of access Individuals have the right to access their personal data and supplementary information this allows individuals to be aware of and verify the lawfulness of the processing.
  • The right to rectification Individuals have the right to have personal data rectified. Personal data can be rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
  • The right to erase Also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’. An individual has the right to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing.
  • The right to restrict processing Individuals have a right to ‘block’ the processing of personal data. When processing is restricted, you are permitted to store the personal data, but not further process it. You can retain just enough information about the individual to ensure that the restriction is respected in future.
  • The right to data portability This allows individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services. It allows them to move, copy or transfer personal data easily from one IT environment to another in a safe and secure way, without hindrance to usability.
  • The right to object Individuals have the right to object to processing based on legitimate interests, direct marketing and processing for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics.
  • Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling Individuals have the right to not have their data processed solely by automated means without any human involvement including profiling (automated processing of personal data to evaluate certain things about an individual).

More detailed descriptions of these rights can be found in the ICO’s GDPR Guide.
