What is the right to be informed?

Individuals need to know that you are collecting their data, why you are processing it and who you are sharing it with.

You should publish this privacy information in a Privacy Notice displayed in your practice, on your website and within any forms or letters you send to individuals.

The information must be:

  • concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible
  • written in clear and plain language, particularly if addressed to a child; and
  • free of charge.
