- [Instructor] European Union citizens have certain rights regarding their personal data. Having access to their data is covered in Article 15 of the GDPR regulations. Controllers must allows for data subjects to access their data on request. This is called a subject access request. There cannot be a charge for these access requests. One exception is if a data subject makes too many requests or there are an excessive number of them, it allows controllers to charge a reasonable fee.
Data subjects can also request a copy. A requested copy serves as confirmation of the data that is being processed. This includes all categories of personal data. It also includes the entire period for which the data will be or has been stored. The categories of information under GDPR include all personal data being processed. There was a right to other supplementary information as well. This largely corresponds to information that should be provided in a privacy notice.
Article 15 allows for data subjects to see the data that is being processed about them.
