- Under the GPDR individuals have the right to be informed about how their Personal Data is being processed. The regulation clearly stipulates that this must be done in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible form, using clear and plain language.
- The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) aims to harmonise data protection legislation across EU member states, enhancing, the privacy rights for individuals. It applies to organisations processing Personal Data which have an establishment within the EU and also those organisations which operate outside the EU but offer goods or services to, or monitor the behaviour of, individuals in the EU. The GDPR is applicable from 25 May 2018
- Overall the GDPR provides the following rights for individuals. Many of which apply whatever the basis of processing, although there are some exceptions:
- The right to be informed how Personal Data is process (Article 13)
- The right of access to their Personal Data (Article 15)
- The right to rectification (Article) 16)
- The right to erasure (Article 17)
- The right to restrict processing (Article 18)
- The right to data portability (Article20)
- The right to object (Article 21)
- Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling (Article22)
- The GDPR sets out six lawful grounds for processing, and these are set out in Article 6.1 as follows:
- CONSENT – the individual has given their consent to the processing of their Personal Data
- CONTRACTURAL – processing of Personal Data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the individual is a party or for the Controller to take pre-contractual steps at the request of the individual.
- LEGAL OBLIGATION – processing of Personal Data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the Controller is subject.
- VITAL INTERESTS – processing of Personal Data is necessary to protect the vital interest of the individual or of another individual.
- PUBLIC TASK – processing of Personal Data is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority.
- LEGITIMATE INTERESTS – processing is necessary under the Legitimate Interests of the Controller or Third Party, unless these interests are overridden by the individual’s interests or fundamental rights.
- In addition to ‘Consent’ the options under which we can operate as a business allows the application of either (or both) of ‘Contractual’ and ‘Legitimate Interests’ . Of these we have decided that the lawful ground of ‘Contractual’ best fits the business model.
