The next right is to that of data portability. This gives individuals the right to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across services. One example would be bank details and information, where an individual may need to transfer information such as direct debit details.

Providing data with this way allows them to move, copy or transfer personal data safely and easily from one IT environment to another, without affecting its usability. This right only applies to information the individual has provided to the controller and where the organisation’s lawful basis is consent or for the performance of a contract and where the processing is being carried out by automated means.
