Data Subject Rights Under the UK GDPR

Data Subject Rights

The UK GDPR includes a set of important rights for individuals:

  • The right to be informed
  • The right of access
  • The right to rectification
  • The right to erasure
  • The right to restrict processing
  • The right to data portability
  • The right to object
  • Rights in relation to automated decision-making and profiling

Explaining Rights to Individuals

It is important that individuals are aware of their rights with respect to their personal data, and how to exercise those rights. The best place to provide such information is in your privacy information (also referred to as a privacy policy or privacy notice). You may also wish to explain individuals’ rights in more detail elsewhere, and we offer a customer-facing policy designed for this, as detailed below.

Document Templates Available

We have a range of document templates available to assist in dealing with data subject rights. The right to be informed is covered by a separate set of documents, as described here. Similarly, we have provided a dedicated set of documents for the right of access (subject access requests), as set out here.

  • Our Data Subject Rights Policy, mentioned above, is a customer-facing policy which explains individuals UK GDPR rights in detail and provides helpful information on how to exercise those rights.
  • Our Data Subject Rights Guidance Notes explain the rights in detail and are designed to help you better understand how to protect individuals’ personal data and their UK GDPR rights.

As with our subject access request documents, a set of template letters is available to assist in responding to requests from individual data subjects to exercise their rights:
