- you have the right to see a clear and easily-understood privacy notice that explains what the company is, what data they collect, and how they will use your data.
- Access your data: you have the right to ask any company to give you a copy of all the personal data they hold about you.
- Correct your data: you can correct any incorrect personal data or complete incomplete data they hold about you. It’s called right to rectification.
- Delete your personal data: you have the right to have your personal data deleted. It’s called right to erasure.
- Limit data use: you can restrict how companies use or process your personal data in some cases.
- Object to data use: you can ask any company to stop processing your data, even if it’s gained in a legal way.
- Move your data: you can request all your data to be sent from one company to another. It’s called right to data portability.
- Refuse automated decisions and profiling: sometimes computers process your data and make decisions on their own, without a person. You have the right to object to this use of your personal data.
- Complain: you can report concerns to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). You may want to ask a trusted adult to help you.
As a child, you are entitled to extra protection, so, it’s important not to give an older age when you are using apps and online services.
