Right to be informed
Home » Tooltips » Right to be informed

Article 12 of the GDPR states that controllers must provide data subjects with information relating to processing aboutthem “in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible form, using clear and plain language, in particular for any information addressed specifically to a child.”

The right to be informed is essential because it determines the exercise of other rights. It refers to the information which shall be provided to a data subject, whether or not the data have been obtained from the data subject. The information which must be provided relates to: the identity of the controller;the purpose(s) of the processing;the recipients;and the existence of the right of access to data and the right to rectify the data.
