Your personal details are yours. They are no one else’s business. This is a matter of privacy. But NHL Stenden has to process personal data in the context of your studies or employment; from the moment of collecting and recording to checking and, eventually, destroying. Click here to see examples of such personal data. But what are your rights in this area?
You may have questions about your personal data. For instance: “Am I entitled to consult my student file?” Yes, you are! NHL Stenden is not only legally obliged to protect your personal data, it must also show what it does with your data. You have eight privacy rights:
- right to information
- right of access
- right to rectification
- right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
- right to restriction of processing
- right to data portability
- right to object
- right no to be submitted to automated individual decision-making
The right to be forgotten
Besides the fundamental privacy rights, you also enjoy the ‘right to be forgotten’. This is legally specified in the European General Data Protection Regulation. Based on this regulation, you can, in certain cases, demand to have your information removed from internet search engines.
