The rights given by current legislation on the protection of personal data are set out in detail below.
- Right of access: the right to obtain confirmation from the data controller that personal data regarding her/him is being processed and, in that case, to gain access to it and the following information: a) the purpose of processing, b) the categories of personal data in question, c) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data has been or will be notified, particularly if recipients in third-party countries or international organisations, d) when possible, the planned storage period of the personal data or, if not possible, the criteria used to decide such a period, e) the existence of the person concerned’s right to ask the data controller for the rectification or erasure of the personal data, restriction on its processing or to object to its processing, f) the right to complain to a supervisory authority, g) if the data has not been collected from the person concerned, all the information available on its origin, and h) the existence of an automated decision-making process, including profiling and, at least in these cases, significant information on the logic used, and also the importance and the expected consequences of such processing for the person concerned. If the personal data is transferred to a third-party country or international organisation, the person concerned also has the right to be informed of the existence of adequate guarantees on the transfer.
- Right to rectification: the right to obtain the rectification of inexact personal data concerning her/him without unjustified delay from the data controller. Taking the purposes of processing into account, the person concerned has the right to obtain the supplement of incomplete personal data, also by providing a supplementary statement.
- Right to erasure: the right to obtain the erasure of personal data concerning her/him without unjustified delay by the data controller if: a) the personal data is no longer necessary with respect to the reasons why it was gathered or otherwise processed, b) the person concerned revokes the consent that processing is based on and there are no other legal grounds for the processing, c) the person concerned objects to processing as necessary for the performance of a task of public interest, connected to the exercise of public powers assigned to the data controller or pursuit of the legitimate interest and there is no prevailing legitimate reason for processing, or processing for direct marketing is objected to, d) the personal data was processed unlawfully, e) the personal data must be erased to comply with a legal requirement set out by European Union law or that of the member state the data controller is subject to, and f) the personal data was collected in relation to the offer of information company services to minors.

- Right of restriction: the right for the data to be processed, except for its storage, only with the consent of the person concerned, or for the check on, exercise or defence of a right in Court or to protect the rights of another individual or legal entity or reasons of relevant public interest of the European Union or a member state: a) for the period necessary for the data controller to check its precision if the person concerned disputes the precision of the personal data, b) processing is unlawful and the person concerned objects to the erasure of the personal data asking instead for its use to be restricted, c) although the data controller no longer needs it for processing, the personal data is necessary for the person concerned for the check on, exercise or defence of a right in Court, d) while awaiting the check on any prevalence of legitimate reasons of the data controller over those of the person concerned, s/he objects to the processing made as necessary for the performance of a task of public interest, connected to the exercise of public powers assigned to the data controller or the pursuit of the legitimate interest of the data controller or third parties.
- Right of portability: the right to receive the personal data concerning her/him supplied to the data controller in a structured format, commonly used and legible by automatic devices and the right to transfer such data to another data controller without obstruction by the data controller to whom it was supplied, and also the right to obtain the direct transmission of the personal data from one data controller to the other, if technically feasible, if processing is based on consent or a contract and is made with automated methods. This right does not prejudice the right to erasure.
- Right to object: the right of the person concerned to object, for reasons connected to their particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning them carried out as necessary for the performance of a task of public interest, connected with the exercise of public powers assigned to the data controller or the pursuit of the legitimate interest of the data controller or third parties. If the personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, the person concerned has the right to object, at any time, to the processing of personal data concerning her/him carried out for that purpose, including profiling, to the extent it is connected with that direct marketing.
The person concerned is also informed that, if they believe their personal data is being processed in breach of the provisions of the GDPR, they have the right to complain to the Authority, as set out by Art. 77 of the Regulations or apply to the appropriate Courts (Art. 79 of the Regulations).
