DATA PROTECTION ACT 1998
* The right of subject access - gives people the right to obtain information held about themselves. * The right to prevent direct marketing - individuals can ask you at any time not to use their personal information for direct marketing purposes. They need to make their request in writing and you must act on it in a reasonable period of time. In most cases, this should be within 28 days. * The right to have personal information corrected - an individual has the right to have incorrect or misleading personal information held about them corrected. If you don't do this, they could obtain a court order directing you to correct, delete, block or destroy the information. If this happens, it will be up to the court to decide if the information is inaccurate and what (if anything) to do about it. The individual may also ask the court for compensation and costs. * The right to prevent automated decisions - this allows individuals to stop important decisions about them being made by solely automated means - for example, decisions made only by a computer. This can include recruitment decisions made solely on the basis of psychometric testing. There are some automated decisions which, under certain circumstances, are exempt from this right. A sensible course of action is to allow the individual the right to appeal a decision taken in this way.
