Rights regarding Automated Decision Making and Profiling:
Automated decision making and profiling – Protection against targeted marketing and decision making. Individuals have the right not to be subject to an agreement when it is focussed on automated processing or results in a legal or equally important impact on the individual. You must provide suitable safeguards when processing personal data for the purposes of profiling. There must be a specified reason for the process and a breakdown of the possible consequences to guarantee fair and transparent processing. Suitable statistical / mathematical procedures should be in place. There should also be suitable administrative and technical actions for the purpose of minimising risk and correcting errors. Individuals must be able to acquire human intervention, articulate their opinion and receive an explanation of the arrangement and be able to challenge it. Automated decisions must not involve or implicate a child, or be based on special categories of data processing unless explicit consent of the individual or their guardian has been given or the processing is needed for the purpose of public concern on the basis of EU / member state law. The right does not apply if the decision is needed to enter into a contract between yourself and the individual, is sanctioned by law or is based around explicit consent.
