- The right to restrict processing
- The right to data portability
- The right to object
- Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.
When you make a request/exercise your rights under GDPR we describe this as a Data Subject Access Request or DSAR. Before we action your DSAR we are required to confirm your identity, please be advised, if we have doubts about your identity when responding to your DSAR, we will ask for more identification data (ID). We will only request information that is necessary to confirm who you are. We will let you know as soon as possible if we need more information before responding to your request. The period (30 days) for responding to your request will begin once we receive this additional ID information and we are confident that you are who you say you are.
GDPR allows for you to make a DSAR via a third party. Often, this will be a solicitor acting on your behalf. In these cases, the company will take steps to be satisfied that the third party making the request is entitled to act on your behalf, noting that it is the third party’s responsibility to provide evidence of such entitlement.
Your “Rights” in brief :
Right to be Informed
You have the right to be informed about the collection and use of your personal data. This is a key transparency requirement under the GDPR.
- inform you of the purposes, and any change in purpose, for processing your personal data;
- make “privacy information” available at the time we collect your personal information
There are a few circumstances when you do not need to provide people with privacy information, such as if an individual already has the information or if it would involve a disproportionate effort to provide it to you.
Right of Access
You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. Your request will be processed and the information to which you are entitled will be collated and provided to you no later than one month (except in extenuating circumstances) from when we receive your request, subject to the requirements and exemptions of Personal Data Protection Act. If such extenuating circumstances mean we are unable to comply with your request within one month, we will tell you as soon as possible about this delay.
Right of Rectification
You have a right to correct data that we hold about you that is inaccurate or incomplete. Where your personal data is inaccurate or where you would like us to complete any incomplete information, you can provide us with a statement that sets out the details of your request for rectification. For certain systems, you will be asked to sign a declaration of accuracy.
Right to be Forgotten
In certain circumstances, you can ask for the data we hold about you to be erased from our records. You can request that the Company deletes your personal data where it does not have grounds to continue processing your personal data. The Company will be unable to comply with your request in certain circumstances including, for example, if the Company has a legal obligation to continue processing the data, we will advise you in this instance.
Right to Restrict Processing
You have the right to the restriction of processing where certain conditions apply.
- you contest the accuracy of your personal data and you are verifying the accuracy of the data;
- you consider that the data has been unlawfully processed and you oppose erasure and request restriction instead;
- you need the company to keep your personal information in order to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.
Right of Portability
The right to data portability, gives you the right to receive personal data previously provided to the company (as the data controller), in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. It also gives you the right to request that a company transmits this data directly to another controller.
- the companies lawful basis for processing this information is consent or
- for the performance of a contract; or
- personal information processed by automated means (ie excluding paper files).
Right to Object
- the Company is processing your personal data on the basis of its legitimate interests;
- you have grounds to believe that the Company no longer needs the personal data for the purposes;
- the processing is unlawful; or,
- you have contested the accuracy of the personal data.
Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.
GDPR has additional rules to protect you if the company chooses to carry out solely automated decision-making processes that have legal or similarly significant effects on you.
- necessary for the entry into or performance of a contract;
- authorised by Union or Member state law applicable to the controller; or
- based on the individual’s explicit consent.
In the event that the company undertakes automated processing, it will advise you. It will also introduce simple ways for you request human intervention or challenge a decision and will carry out regular checks to make sure that our systems are working as intended.
