The rights of the data subjects are the beating heart of the EU Regulation of the protection of personal data.
The data subjects, that are the individuals which the processing of personal data relates to, are the main reason of all the GDPR provisions.
To them is dedicated the entire Chapter III of the law, that -in addition to the requirements of transparency and information- provides for a variety of rights of particular importance, freely exercisable towards Data Controllers and Data Processors:
– Right of access (art. 15)
– Right to rectification (art. 16)
– Right to erasure or “right to be forgotten” (art. 17)
– Right to restriction of processing (art. 18)
– Right to data portability (art. 20)– Right to object (with due reference to automated processing, art. 21)
– Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling (art. 22)
One of the most serious phenomenon to which we often witness as legal consultants is the fact that most of the data subjects don’t know the potential of these important rights.
The common perception is often that of an absence of protection by the DPA or, worse, of an uselessness of every attempt to exercise the rights.
Our Firm is committed to oppose this mistaken belief, supporting the Clients (both on the controller side and the data subjects side) in the proper exercise and compliance with the abovementioned rights, from the pre-litigation to the actual potential dispute as well as the defense before the DPA and the court.
