Subject Access Rights

Data subject rights
You have the right to get a copy of the information that is held about you. This is known as a subject access request. This right of subject access means that you can make a request to any organisation processing your personal data.

Summary of your data subject rights

  1. Right to rectification of inaccurate data
  2. Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’) – where data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which they were collected, the data subject withdraws consent, objects to the processing, data is processed unlawfully, for compliance with a law or the data concerns a child and was processed by a website. The company needs to be able to identify other data controllers to whom it has disclosed data to tell them that the individual wants to be forgotten (subject to cost and available technology).
  3. Right to restriction of processing to verify accuracy of data, where processing is unlawful but the individual does not want erasure, the controller no longer needs the data but the individual requires the controller to keep the data for defence of legal claims or pending verification of whether the legitimate interests of the controller in processing override those of the individual.
  4. Right to data portability – controllers have to give data subjects their data in a format which the individual can take to another controller.
  5. Right to object where processing is based on public interests or legitimate interests or for direct marketing.
