The EU General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) provides the data subject with the following rights:
Right to withdraw consent
The data subject shall have the right to withdraw his or her consent at any time. (Article 7)
Right of access by the data subject
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. The data subject shall have the right to access to the personal data concerning him or her. Where requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character, the data controller may charge a fee or refuse to act on the request. (Article 12 and Article 15)
Right to rectification
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the data controller the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her contained in the register (Article 16). A request for rectification shall be submitted in writing. Persons in an employment relationship (with HAMK or HAMI) are able to do rectification suggestions concerning their recorded working hours, which are then approved by their supervisor or salary administration personnel.
Right to erasure
The data subject shall have the right to request the erasure of personal data concerning him or her where one of the following grounds applies (Article 17):
- the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
- the data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based and there is no other legal ground for the processing;
- the data subject objects to the processing, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing (Article 21);
- the personal data have been unlawfully processed;
- the personal data have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
Right to restriction of processing
The data subject shall have the right to obtain restriction of processing where one of the following applies (Article 18):
- the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
- the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead;
- the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
- the data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
Right to data portability
Where the processing is based on consent and carried out by automated means, the data subject shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which he or she has provided to a data controller, in a machine-readable format. (Article 20)
Requests to exercise these rights are to be submitted:
