Free invite to participate at the online webinar on the 10th June 2020. GDPR Reboot series on Data Subject Rights and Obligations

GDPR and other global privacy mandates enforce the rights of the Data Subjects to give consent without processing the data are considered abusive unless the data is needed under legal obligations. Data Subject is any person whose personal data is being collected, held, used, misused, processed, stored, and deleted. Anyone is a data subject – as by disclosing personal data is collected while browsing the internet, applying for a job, booking a meeting, paying for a service, etc. 

The rights of the data subject include access, inquire how the data is being processed, and receive a copy of the data in an intelligible form… Other rights include; restrict processing, data portability, the right to be forgotten, rectification and more. The complexities continue with the restrictions on automated decisions or profiling, sensitive data, biometric data, data retrieval, minimization, data transfers.

When restriction is necessary and proportionate

Data subject rights are at the core of the fundamental right to data protection. GDPR articles 15-22 cover the data subject right of access, right to be forgotten, and right to restriction of processing that are among the key pillars of the data privacy and protection legislation.

However, Article 23 provides exceptions and can be applied in limited circumstances. It allows member states to restrict the scope and rights when the restriction is necessary and proportionate to safeguard national security, defence, or public security.

The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) discussed the Hungarian government’s suspension of data subject rights and how restrictions of the privacy law should be applied and stated;  The mere existence of a pandemic or any other emergency situation alone is not a sufficient reason to provide for any kind of restriction on the rights of data subjects.

“Rather, any restriction must clearly contribute to the safeguard of an important objective of general public interest of the EU or a Member State.”

At the next free online seminar on the 10th June 2020 at 14:30 CET, you get the full picture of the Data Subject rights and obligations.
