Right to object and right to restriction of processing

Rights to object to the processing of personal data and to restrict it are conferred to all data subjects. Watch Evgeni Moyakine explain more.

In this video, the rights with respect to objecting to the processing of personal data and restricting this processing are examined.

Data subjects have the right to object under Article 21 GDPR. The video explains that there are several grounds for exercising this right. Exercising this right prevents the controllers from the further processing of personal data if there are no compelling legitimate grounds for continuing it.

Furthermore, the right to restriction of processing can be found in Article 18 GDPR and it applies under a number of conditions discussed in this video.

It is quite a lot of information but this should not prevent us from learning even more about data subjects’ rights. Are you still with us?
