What is the right to be informed in GDPR?
The right to be informed under Articles 13 & 14 of GDPR requires EU residents to be informed about collecting and processing their personal data. This right relates to the principle of transparency, a foundational concept in the GDPR.
Organisations must provide individuals with concise, transparent, intelligible, and accessible information about the data being collected. They should provide information about:
- Purposes for processing personal data
- The categories of personal data collected
- Who the data will be shared with, including international transfers
- The retention periods for that personal data
- The rights available to them with respect to their data
- The right to withdraw consent
