Exploring Individual Rights and Subject Access Requests (SARs)

Understanding your rights when it comes to your personal data is extremely important. The Data Protection Made Easy podcast, episode 167, tackles this vital topic head-on, featuring a lively discussion led by our data protection experts, Jasmine Harrison, Joe Kirk, and Philip Brining.

This episode, filmed in front of an engaged audience of over 100 listeners, dives deep into the complexities of individual rights under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR). It empowers you with the knowledge and confidence to navigate situations involving your personal data, specifically focusing on Subject Access Requests (SARs).

Empowering Individuals with Subject Access Requests (SARs)

The UK GDPR grants individuals a fundamental right to access their personal data held by organisations. This right is exercised through a Subject Access Request (SAR). Throughout the episode, our hosts unpack the SAR process, making it clear and manageable for anyone.

They delve into the specifics of what information you can request under an SAR, including details like the categories of data held about you, the purposes for which it’s processed, and the recipients with whom it’s shared.

Furthermore, the discussion clarifies the timeframe organisations have to respond to an SAR and the format in which the requested data should be provided. This empowers you to confidently submit an SAR and understand what to expect in return.

Exploring the Spectrum of Individual Rights

The conversation extends beyond SARs, exploring the broader spectrum of individual rights enshrined in the UK GDPR. Our experts shed light on your right to rectification, allowing you to correct any inaccurate or incomplete personal data held by an organisation.

They’ll also empower you with knowledge of your right to erasure, often called the “right to be forgotten.” This right lets you request that organizations delete your personal data, but only under specific circumstances.

The episode tackles the right to restrict processing, empowering you to limit the ways in which your data is used. It also explores your right to object to automated decision-making, ensuring you have a say in how algorithms handle your data.
