Data is King!
Businesses store more data today than ever and consumers are handing over their personal data in good faith that it will be stored and managed in a fair way.
GDPR has made it easier for consumers to obtain copies of the data stored about them and how it is being used. This provides transparency for them but could provide some additional challenges for organisations.
Right of Access
Individuals have the right to obtain the following from you:
- confirmation that you are processing their personal data;
- a copy of their personal data; and
- other supplementary information – this largely corresponds to the information that you should provide in a privacy notice
