Individuals’ rights under GDPR

The GDPR creates some new rights for individuals and strengthens some of the rights that currently exist. An individual’s rights under GDPR are:

  • The right to be informed.
  • The right of access.
  • The right of rectification.
  • The right to erasure.
  • The right to restrict processing.
  • The right to data portability.
  • The right to object.
  • Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.
The right to be informed

This obligates the data controller’s need to provide at your request “fair processing information”, typically through a privacy notice such as this, in order to provide transparency over how Lancashire Caterers’ uses personal data.

The right of access

This right allows you to request confirmation that your data is being processed, access to your personal data, and the supplementary information that is provided in this privacy policy.

The right of rectification

You have the right to have your personal data corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete. If Lancashire Caterers has disclosed your personal data to third parties, we must then inform them of the rectification where possible, and inform you about the third parties to whom your data has been disclosed, if appropriate.

The right to erasure

This is known as the “right to be forgotten”, and the principle underpinning this right is to enable an individual to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continuing processing. Some requests, however, can be refused for specific reasons as set out on the website. We may also have to retain some basic details to ensure we do not start processing your data again, should it be provided to us through a purchase of data.

The right to restrict processing

You have the right to “block” or suppress processing of personal data, i.e. request not to be contacted for marketing or information dispersal. In this case, your data would be retained to ensure that the restriction is respected in future.

The right to data portability

This right allows individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services, i.e. to move, copy or transfer personal data from one IT environment to another in a safe and secure way (an example would be a bank allowing you to access your personal online banking data and then upload it to a price comparison website to compare and identify your best value banking options).

The right to object

Individuals have a right to object (on “grounds relating to his or her particular situation”) to:

  • processing of their data 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.
