Lawfulness, fairness and transparency

This principle requires that personal data is

“Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject”.

The grounds for processing personal data and special categories of personal data broadly replicate those currently in operation. 

Points to note:

 more fair processing information required to be given

  refinements to obtaining and evidencing consent 

 limitations on the use of consent when processing children's data

restrictions on use of the legitimate interests ground
