The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a EU data protection law which aims to give the public more control over information held about them. It came into effect on 25th May 2018, after which companies must be able to comply with consumers’ requests about their data.
So, the 8 rights mean that you can:
Find out what data a company holds on you, you can send a Subject Access Request (SAR) and receive a copy of this data.
Correct your own personal data if it's wrong or out of date.
Ask for your personal data to be erased. This is also known as the 'right to be forgotten'.
Limit how a company processes your data, for example deleting some of it rather than all of it.
Share or transfer your personal data from one service to another for your own purpose e.g. Facebook's ability to transfer your photos to a Google Photos account.
Object means that you can object to your data being used in certain ways, like for marketing purposes.
Require companies to need your explicit consent, sign a contract, or have a legal justification for making a decision about your data without human involvement.
Unfortunately GDPR law isn’t accessible for most people: who is going to contact each company individually? Worse still, many of us don’t know which companies have our data, or how to find out.
