Exercising Your Individual Right 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) places a number of obligations on organisations and strengthens the rights that you as an individual has over the processing of your personal information. The Council has produced guidance to explain your enhanced rights and how we will deal with any requests we may receive from you.
You can also obtain full information about your rights from the Information Commissioner’s Office (the ICO). The ICO is the UK’s independent regulator responsible for upholding and enforcing the rights of individuals under data protection law. 
Please be aware that these rights are not absolute and are subject to conditions and exemptions. In some cases the rights described above only apply if the processing activity is undertaken on specific legal grounds and/or in defined circumstances. Therefore all of these rights are unlikely to be engaged in all cases.
