Overview of the Individuals’ Rights Under the GDPR
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), individuals have several rights over their personal data (i.e. right of access, right to data portability etc.)
Controllers and to some extent processors of personal data must be able to handle individual’s rights requests without delay and, in any event, within a month of the receipt of the request.
