How to request your personal data under GDPR

"The new General Data Protection Regulation was set up to benefit everyone and having the right systems in place is not only good practice but will ensure that organisations build trust and transparency with their customers and minimise privacy and security risks for the future", said Mr O'Boyle. Earlier this year, a survey ForgeRock commissioned found that 57% of United Kingdom consumers worry about how much personal data they have shared online, while 63% feel they know little or nothing about their rights regarding their own data.

"There is a lot of scaremongering about GDPR but at its heart, GDPR is about using data responsibly with good information management and governance structures, and giving individuals choices where appropriate".

Increasingly, consumers are realising that the many "free" digital services they use in their daily lives have not been completely free - users have paid for them in personal data.

In a statement given to Reuters, Facebook says it plans to make similar privacy controls and settings that Europe will get under GDPR available to the rest of the world. Twitter will show you a page where you can decide which, if any, of these personalization techniques you want it to use. However, following the introduction of GDPR, businesses now have a responsibility to ensure these personal details are adequately protected and not retained longer than necessary.

Whilst businesses should be fully aware of their upcoming obligations in respect of the new regulations, individuals may not be aware of new rights afforded to them. This is akin to asking John D Rockefeller or JP Morgan to help with drafting competition laws - at best, they will be insipid, and at worst, they will entrench Facebook and the tech giants as data bastions into the future. Even though the old policy, which went into effect in July, doesn't mention the terms data portability or data erasure, it does already offer ways to download your data and request it be modified or deleted.
