Individual Rights

On the whole, the rights individuals enjoy under the GDPR are the same as under the previous Data Protection Acts, but with some significant enhancements:

  • The rules for dealing with subject access requests have changed under the GDPR. The timescale for processing such requests is now a maximum of one calendar month. 
  • We will also need to provide some additional information to people making requests, such as our data retention periods and the right to have inaccurate data corrected.
