Data Subject Rights (GDPR)
Whist using the citizensrightsproject.org website and content, any social media (domains) and any of our collective products or services you are considered a “data subject”. The purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (“GDPR”) is to protect “the rights and freedoms” of data subjects (i.e. natural persons) and to ensure that personal data is not processed without their knowledge, and, wherever possible, that it is processed with their consent.
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
“GDPR” applies to the processing of personal data wholly or partly by automated means (i.e. by computer) and to the processing other than by automated means of personal data (i.e. paper records) that form part of a filling system. Citizens’ Rights Project is considered “a controller”, which processes personal data in its service to you and will make decisions as to the purpose and means of data processing activities.
GDPR stipulates that each Data Subject has eight rights:
- The right to be informed; this means Citizens’ Rights Project must make clear what we are processing, why, and who else the data may be passed to.
- The right of access; this is your right to see what data is held about you by Citizens’ Rights Project.
- The right to rectification; the right to have your data corrected or amended if what is held is by Citizens’ Rights Project is incorrect.
- The right to erasure; under certain circumstances you can ask for your personal information to be deleted. This is applicable if Citizens’ Rights Project no longer require your personal data for the intended purpose, your consent for the processing of that data has been withdrawn, or the personal data has been obtained or processed unlawfully.
- The right to restrict processing; this gives you the right to ask for a temporary halt to processing of personal data, such as in the case where a dispute or legal case has to be concluded, or the data is being corrected.
- The right to data portability; you have the right to ask for any data supplied directly to Citizens’ Rights Project to be provided in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format.
- The right to object; you have the right to object to the continued processing of your data if inconsistent with the primary purpose for which is what collected.
- Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling; you have the right to not be subject a decision based solely on automated processing.
