J!Cast: Is the right of access under the GDPR unlimited?

In this new episode of the ITM Podcast, research assistants Owen Mc Grath and Nicolas John talk about the right of access for data subjects as set out in Article 15 of the GDPR and the possibility for data controllers to restrict or refuse access.

With the help of the central data subject right of European data protection law, it is possible for persons whose personal data have been processed to obtain information about these data and the circumstances of the processing. However, data processors (controllers) are not defenceless against this right. In the case of excessive requests for information, they may have a right of refusal. In particular, the conditions and possibilities of limiting or refusing access are the central topic of this episode.
