PART 2

RIGHTS OF DATA SUBJECTS AND OTHERS

7        Fundamental rights of access to personal data

(1)     An individual is entitled to be informed by any data controller whether personal data of which that individual is the data subject are being processed by or on behalf of that data controller, and, if that is the case, to be given by the data controller a description of –

(a)     the personal data being so processed of which that individual is the data subject;

(b)     the purposes for which they are being or are to be processed by or on behalf of that data controller; and

(c)     the recipients or classes of recipients to whom they are or may be disclosed by or on behalf of that data controller.

(2)     An individual is entitled to the communication in intelligible form, by the relevant data controller, of –

(a)     the information constituting any personal data of which the individual is the data subject; and

(b)     any information available to the relevant data controller as to the source of those data.

(3)     If the processing by automatic means of personal data of which an individual is the data subject for the purpose of evaluating matters relating to the individual (for example, the individual’s performance at work, creditworthiness, reliability or conduct) has constituted or is likely to constitute the sole basis for any decision significantly affecting the individual, the individual is entitled to be informed by the relevant data controller of the logic involved in that decision-taking.

(4)     A data controller is not obliged under paragraph (1), (2) or (3) to supply any information unless the data controller has received –

(a)     a request in writing; and

(b)     except in cases that may be prescribed by Regulations, such fee (not exceeding any maximum that may be prescribed by Regulations) as the data controller may require.

(5)     The request may, in such cases as may be prescribed by Regulations, specify that it is limited to personal data of any description that may be prescribed by Regulations.

(6)     If a data controller reasonably requires further information in order to be satisfied as to the identity of the person making the request or to locate the information that the person seeks, and has informed the person of the requirement, the data controller is not obliged to comply with the request unless supplied with that information.

(7)     If a data controller cannot comply with the request without disclosing information relating to another individual who can be identified from that information, the controller is not obliged to comply with the request unless –

(a)     the other individual has consented to the disclosure of the information to the person making the request; or

(b)     it is reasonable in all the circumstances to comply with the request without the consent of the other individual.

(8)     In paragraph (7), the reference to information relating to another individual includes a reference to information identifying that individual as the source of the information sought in the request.

(9)     Paragraph (7) is not to be construed as excusing a data controller from communicating so much of the information sought in the request as can be communicated without disclosing the identity of the other individual concerned, whether by the omission of names or other identifying particulars or otherwise.

(10)    In determining for the purposes of paragraph (7)(b) whether it is reasonable in all the circumstances to comply with the request without the consent of the other individual concerned, regard shall be had, in particular, to –

(a)     any duty of confidentiality owed to the other individual;

(b)     any steps taken by the data controller to seek the consent of the other individual;

(c)     whether the other individual is capable of giving consent; and

(d)     any express refusal of consent by the other individual.

(11)    Except as provided in paragraph (7), a data controller shall comply with a request under this Article promptly and in any event within such period as may be prescribed by Regulations, or if no period is so prescribed for the time being, within the period that –

8        Treatment of requests under Article 7

(1)     The States may by Regulations provide that, in such cases as may be prescribed by those Regulations, a request under Article 7 for information referred to in any provision of Article 7 is to be treated as a request for information referred to in any other provision of Article 7.

(2)     The obligation imposed by Article 7(2)(a) shall be complied with by supplying the data subject with a copy of the relevant information in permanent form unless –

(3)     If any of the information referred to in Article 7(2)(a) is expressed in terms that are not intelligible without explanation the copy shall be accompanied by an explanation of those terms.

(4)     If a data controller has previously complied with a request under Article 7 by an individual, the data controller is not obliged to comply with a subsequent identical or similar request under that Article by the individual unless the interval between compliance with the previous request and the making of the current request is reasonable.

(5)     In determining whether the interval is reasonable, regard shall be had to the nature of the data, the purpose for which the data are processed and the frequency with which the data are altered.

(6)     Article 7(3) is not to be regarded as requiring the provision of information as to the logic involved in any decision-taking to the extent that the information constitutes a trade secret.

(7)     Information supplied under Article 7 shall be supplied by reference to the data in question at the time when the request for the data is received, except that account may be taken of any amendment or deletion made between that time and the time when the information is supplied, being an amendment or deletion that would have been made regardless of the receipt of the request.

(8)     For the purposes of Article 7(7) and (9), another individual can be identified from the information being disclosed if the individual can be identified from that information, or from that and any other information that, in the reasonable belief of the data controller, is likely to be in, or to come into, the possession of the data subject making the request.

(3)     If personal data are being processed by or on behalf of a data controller who receives a request under Article 7 from an individual who is the data subject of those data, the obligation to supply information under that Article includes an obligation to give the individual a statement of the individual’s rights under this Law in such form, and to such extent, as may be prescribed by Regulations.

(b)     that the data controller in question has failed to comply with the notice to that extent,

the court may order the data controller to take such steps as it thinks fit for complying with the notice to that extent.

11      Right to stop processing for direct marketing

(1)     An individual is entitled at any time by notice in writing to a data controller to require the data controller at the end of such period as is reasonable in the circumstances to cease, or not to begin, processing for the purposes of direct marketing personal data in respect of which the individual is the data subject.

(a)     those data; and

(b)     any other personal data in respect of which the person is the data controller and that contain an expression of opinion that appears to the court to be based on the inaccurate data.

(2)     Paragraph (1) applies whether or not the data accurately record information received or obtained by the data controller from the data subject or a third party, but if the data accurately record such information then –

(a)     if the conditions referred to in paragraph 7(a) and (b) of Schedule 1 Part 2 have been satisfied in respect of the data - the court may, instead of making an order under paragraph (1), make an order requiring the data to be supplemented by such statement of the true facts relating to the matters dealt with by the data as the court may approve; or

(b)     if one or both of those conditions have not been satisfied in respect of the data - the court may, instead of making an order under paragraph (1), make such order as it thinks fit for securing that those conditions are satisfied, with or without a further order requiring the data to be supplemented by such statement of the true facts relating to the matters dealt with by the data as the court may approve.

(3)     If a court –

(a)     makes an order under paragraph (1); or

(b)     is satisfied on the application of a person that personal data of which the person was the data subject and that have been rectified, blocked, erased or destroyed were inaccurate,

(Article 4(2))

INTERPRETATION OF DATA PROTECTION PRINCIPLES

1        First principle: source

(1)     In determining for the purposes of the first principle whether personal data are processed fairly, regard is to be had to the method by which they are obtained, including in particular whether any person from whom they are obtained is deceived or misled as to the purpose or purposes for which they are to be processed.

(2)     Subject to paragraph 2, for the purposes of the first principle data are to be treated as obtained fairly if they consist of information obtained from a person who –

(a)     is authorized by or under any enactment to supply it; or

(b)     is required to supply it by or under any enactment or by any convention or other instrument imposing an international obligation on Jersey.

2        First principle: specified information at relevant time

(1)     Subject to paragraph 3, for the purposes of the first principle personal data are not to be treated as processed fairly unless –

(a)     in the case of data obtained from the data subject - the data controller ensures so far as practicable that the data subject has, is provided with, or has made readily available to him or her, the specified information; or

(b)     in any other case - the data controller ensures so far as practicable that, before the relevant time or as soon as practicable after that time, the data subject has, is provided with, or has made readily available to him or her, the specified information.

(2)     For the purposes of this paragraph, the relevant time is –

(a)     in any case – the time when the data controller first processes the data; or

(b)     in a case where, at the time when the data controller first processes the data, disclosure of the data to a third party within a reasonable period is envisaged –

(i)      if the data are in fact disclosed to a third party within a reasonable period – the time when the data are first disclosed,

(ii)      if within that period the data controller becomes, or ought to become, aware that the data are unlikely to be disclosed to such a person within that period – the time when the data controller does become, or ought to become, so aware, or

(iii)     in any other case - the end of that period.

(3)     For the purposes of this paragraph, the specified information is all of the following –

(a)     the identity of the data controller;

(b)     the identity of the representative (if any) nominated by the data controller under Article 5;

3        First principle: primary and other conditions

(1)     Paragraph 2(1)(b) does not apply if either of the primary conditions, together with such further conditions as may be prescribed by Regulations, are met.

(2)     For the purposes of this paragraph, the primary conditions are –

(a)     that the provision of the specified information would involve a disproportionate effort on the part of the data controller; and

(b)     that the recording of the information to be contained in the data by, or the disclosure of the data by, the data controller is necessary for compliance with any legal obligation to which the data controller is subject, other than an obligation imposed by contract.

4        First principle: general identifier

(1)     For the purposes of the first principle, personal data that contain a general identifier falling within such description as may be prescribed by Regulations are not to be treated as processed fairly and lawfully unless they are processed in compliance with any conditions so prescribed in relation to general identifiers of that description.

(2)     In this paragraph, “general identifier” means any identifier (for example, a number or code used for identification purposes) that relates to an individual and forms part of a set of similar identifiers that is of general application.

5        Second principle: how purpose specified

For the purposes of the second principle, the purpose or purposes for which personal data are obtained may in particular be specified –

(b)     in a notification given to the Commissioner under Part 3 of this Law.

6        Second principle: purpose of processing after disclosure

For the purposes of the second principle, in determining whether any disclosure of personal data is compatible with the purpose or purposes for which the data were obtained, regard is to be had to the purpose or purposes for which the personal data are intended to be processed by any person to whom they are disclosed.

7        Fourth principle

The fourth principle is not to be regarded as being contravened by reason of any inaccuracy in personal data that accurately record information obtained by the data controller from the data subject or a third party in a case where –

(a)     having regard to the purpose or purposes for which the data were obtained and further processed, the data controller has taken reasonable steps to ensure the accuracy of the data; and

(b)     if the data subject has notified the data controller of the data subject’s view that the data are inaccurate – the data indicate that fact.

8        Sixth principle

A person is to be regarded as contravening the sixth principle if the person fails –

(b)     to comply with a notice given under Article 10(1) to the extent that the notice is justified;

(c)     to give a notice under Article 10(3);

If processing of personal data is carried out by a data processor on behalf of a data controller, the data controller shall in order to comply with the seventh principle –

(a)     choose a data processor providing sufficient guarantees in respect of the technical and organisational security measures governing the processing to be carried out; and

(b)     take reasonable steps to ensure compliance with those measures.

12      Seventh principle: processing contract to ensure reliability

If processing of personal data is carried out by a data processor on behalf of a data controller, the data controller is not to be regarded as complying with the seventh principle unless the processing is carried out under a contract –

(a)     that is made or evidenced in writing;

(b)     under which the data processor is to act only on instructions from the data controller; and

(c)     that requires the data processor to comply with obligations equivalent to those imposed on a data controller by the seventh principle.

13      Eighth principle: what is adequate protection in foreign country

For the purposes of the eighth principle, an adequate level of protection is one that is adequate in all the circumstances of the case, having regard in particular to –

14      Exceptions to eighth principle

The eighth principle does not apply to a transfer falling within any of paragraphs 1-9 of Schedule 4, except in such circumstances and to such extent as may be prescribed by Regulations.

15      Eighth principle: Community finding decisive

(1)     If in any proceedings under this Law any question arises as to whether the requirement of the eighth principle as to an adequate level of protection is met in relation to the transfer of any personal data to a country or territory outside the European Economic Area, and a Community finding has been made in relation to transfers of the kind in question, that question is to be determined in accordance with that finding.

(2)     In this paragraph “Community finding” means a finding of the European Commission, under the procedure provided for in Article 31(2) of the Data Protection Directive, that a country or territory outside the European Economic Area does, or does not, ensure an adequate level of protection within the meaning of Article 25(2) of the Directive.
