Data Protection in Camden - your rights

Rights concerning automated decision making and profiling

You have rights around automated decision making and profiling.  These provide safeguards against the risk that automated decisions can sometimes cause damage.  Automated decisions are those taken without human intervention i.e. solely by a machine, for example where an application for credit is decided by a computer programme alone without any human decision making.  The rights do not apply to all automated decisions, but only where they have ‘a legal or similarly significant effect’ on someone.  

Where Camden have taken an automated decision then data subjects have the right to:

  • obtain human intervention
  • express their point of view
  • obtain an explanation of the decision
  • challenge the decision

Camden has undertaken a full information audit and has determined that it does not undertake automated decision making of this type.  Camden does not undertake profiling.

You can find out more about automated decision making, profiling and your rights at the ICO website.
