As a EU citizen you have several rights and we will discuss those entering the scope of the GDPR. Like you probably already imagine, most of it will be related to your personal data and its processing. We remind you that once you consent to have your personal data processed by an organization, you become a data subject. This does not diminish your EU citizens’ rights, if anything, it gives you more. We already discussed some of these rights under the chapter ‘Data subjects’. We will go a little more in depth on some of them, but we will also discuss other rights.
In short, the most basic and most discussed rights of individuals under the GDPR are the following: the right to be informed, to access their data, to rectification, to erasure, to restrict processing, to data portability, to object and to restrict automated decisions and profiling.
