You have a right to access your personal information, to object to the processing of your personal information, to rectify, to erase, to restrict and to port your personal information, depending on the purpose of processing.

The right of access
  • Everyone has a right to access their personal data.
The right to rectification
  • Everyone has a right to rectify their incomplete or inaccurate personal data.
The right to erasure The right to erasure does not provide an absolute ‘right to be forgotten’.

Individuals have a right to have personal data erased and to prevent processing in specific circumstances:

  • Where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed.
  • When the individual withdraws consent.
  • When the individual objects to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing.
  • The personal data was unlawfully processed (i.e. otherwise in breach of the GDPR).
  • The personal data has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation.
  • The personal data is processed in relation to the offer of information society services to a child.
  • Under the GDPR, this right is not limited to processing that causes unwarranted and substantial damage or distress. However, if the processing does cause damage or distress, this is likely to make the case for erasure stronger.
  • There are some specific circumstances where the right to erasure does not apply and you can refuse to deal with a request.

The Company can refuse to comply with a request for erasure where the personal data is processed for the following reasons:

  • to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;
  • to comply with a legal obligation for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority.
    for public health purposes in the public interest;
  • archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific research historical research or statistical purposes; or
    the exercise or defence of legal claims.
The right to restrict processing The Company will be required to restrict the processing of personal data in the following circumstances:

  • Where an individual contests the accuracy of the personal data, you should restrict the processing until you have verified the accuracy of the personal data.
  • Where an individual has objected to the processing (where it was necessary for the performance of a public interest task or purpose of legitimate interests), and you are considering whether your organisation’s legitimate grounds override those of the individual.
  • When processing is unlawful and the individual opposes erasure and requests restriction instead.
  • If the Company no longer needs the personal data but the individual requires the data to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.
The right to data portability This right allows individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services.

The right to data portability only applies:

  • to personal data an individual has provided to a controller;
  • where the processing is based on the individual’s consent or for the performance of a contract; and
    when processing is carried out by automated means.
The right to object Individuals have the right to object to;

  • processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling);
  • direct marketing (including profiling); and
  • processing for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics.
Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.
  • Automated individual decision-making (making a decision solely by automated means without any human involvement);and
  • profiling (automated processing of personal data to evaluate certain things about an individual). Profiling can be part of an automated decision-making process.
  • You can only carry out this type of decision-making where the decision is:
  • necessary for the entry into or performance of a contract; or
  • authorised by Union or Member state law applicable to the controller; or based on the individual’s explicit consent.
