Action 11 in Portugal flag Portugal

In accordance with Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, Member States will enable citizens to have electronic access to those personal data that are held on them when available electronically and will inform them electronically whenever such data are being processed by automatic means, in a simple and unambiguous manner.

Indicator Status Evidence
Under the existing Directive (95/46/EC), does your legislation give your citizens right to have electronic access to their personal data that are held by the third parties in the electronic form? No Portuguese law (67/98 of 26 October which transposes into Portuguese law Directive 95/46/EC) enforces to the processing of personal data wholly or partly by automatic means, and to treatment than by automatic means of personal data held in manual files or those intended. According to this law, the data subject has, among other rights, the right to obtain from the controller confirmation of whether or not data relating to him, and in the case of automated processing, the right to know of underlying the processing of data concerning him. The law does not, however, require the means by which this information should be provided by the controller, determining only that the right of access should be exercised freely and without constraint at reasonable intervals and without excessive expense or delay.
