GDPR - 4. Individual Rights

GDPR - 4. Individual Rights

October 23, 2017


Do all your procedures cover all rights individuals have? This goes from knowing what information you hold,deleting that data safely,  to provide the data electronically in a standard and accessible format to name but a few.


GDPR enhances the rights individuals already had under the Data Protection Act, and if you are already compliant with the DPA, then moving on to compliance with GDPR should not be difficult. 


GDPR includes the following rights (from the ICO website):


  • The right to be informed

  • The right of access

  • The right to rectification

  • The right to erasure

  • The right to restrict processing

  • The right to data portability

  • The right to object

  • The right not to be subject to automated decision-making including profiling. 

Portability is a new right, it only applies to personal data provided to a controller, consented , or on the basis of fulfilling a contract, or when processing is carried out in automated means


It is important to review your processes to make sure this new requirement is catered for, and you can provide this information in a commonly used structure, in a machine readable format, and free of charge


GDPR is coming into force on 25th May 2018
