The data protection act is clear
In brief – what does the Data Protection Act say about your rights to object to our processing a specific record?
An individual who wants to exercise this right has to put their objection in writing to you and state what they require you to do to avoid causing damage or distress.
The ICO refer to this notice as an “objection to processing” although it is also known as a “section 10 notice” in practice. The Act limits the extent to which you must comply with such an objection, in the following ways:
- • an individual can only object to you processing their own personal data;
- • processing an individual’s personal data must be causing unwarranted and substantial damage or distress; and
- • the objection must specify why the processing has this effect.
In addition, an individual has no right to object to processing if:
- • they have consented to the processing;
- • the processing is necessary:
- • in relation to a contract that the individual has entered into; or
- • because the individual has asked for something to be done so they can enter into a contract;
- • the processing is necessary because of a legal obligation that applies to you (other than a contractual obligation); or
- • the processing is necessary to protect the individual’s “vital interests”.
