INTRODUCTION
This procedure is intended to be used when a data subject exercises one or more of the rights they are granted under the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Each of the rights involved has its own specific aspects and challenges to PartnerHero Inc. in complying with them and doing so within the required timescales. In general, a proactive approach will be taken that places as much control over personal data in the hands of the data subject as possible, with a minimum amount of intervention or involvement required on the part of PartnerHero Inc. This may be achieved by providing online access to the personal data so that the data subject can verify and amend it as required.

However, in some cases there is a decision-making process to be followed by PartnerHero Inc. regarding whether a request will be allowed or not; where this is the case, the steps involved in these decisions are explained in this document.

This procedure should be considered in conjunction with the following related documents:
• Data Protection Impact Assessment Process
• Personal Data Breach Notification Procedure
• Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy
• GDPR mapping

5. We must provide information without undue delay and within a maximum of one month from the receipt of the request.

PROCEDURE STEPS
THE RIGHT TO BE INFORMED
When personal data iscollected from the data subject or obtained from another
source, we must  inform the data subject about our use of that data and their
rights over it. Compliance with this right is addressed in a separate document, Privacy Notice Procedure.
THE RIGHT OF ACCESS
A data subject has the right to ask PartnerHero whether we process data about them and to request access to that data.In addition the, the data subject has the right to the  following information:
1. The purposes of the processing
2. The categories of the personal data concerned
3. The recipients, or categories of recipients, of the data, if any, in particular any third countries or international organizations
4. The length of time that the personal data will be stored for (or the criteria used to determine that period)
5. The data subject’s rights to rectification or erasure of their personal data and restriction of, or objection to, its processing
6. The data subject’s right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
7. Information about the source of the data, if not directly from the data subject
8. Whether the personal data will be subject to automated processing, including profiling and, if so, the logic and potential consequences involved
9. When the data are transferred to a third country or international organization, information about the safeguards that apply
In most cases, the decision-making process for such requests will be straightforward unless it is judged that the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. The compilation of the information is likely to require the input of the data owner.
