In today’s digital world, companies are looking to gather information on people who visit their website and social media platforms. This often allows companies to better understand their audience. 

However, as a data subject, someone who can be identified directly or indirectly from certain information, you have several rights regarding the information a Company has on you. These rights include:

  • Right to Notice
    What information is collected and why it was collected.

  • Right to Know
    Right to confirm if personal data is being processed, what information is being processed, and what third parties it was shared with (if applicable).

  • Right to Access
    Right to know in detail what personal data a company has collected.

  • Right to Receive
    Right to receiving a copy of your collected information in a readily usable format.

  • Right to Correct
    Right to request corrections of personal information.

  • Right to Deletion
    Right to request deletion of personal information (subject to exceptions).

You can utilize your rights and request your information in 3 ways: 

  • Send an email to the company’s privacy contact
  • Leave a message on the company’s direct privacy line
  • Send a letter to the company’s privacy officer/representative

Whether you want are interested in knowing the information a company has on you or not, it is important to know your rights and how to obtain the information.
