The UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals.

Data portability

Individuals are able to move, copy or transfer their personal data from your organisation to another securely, without affecting the data.

Ways to meet our expectations:

  • When requested, you provide personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format.
  • Where possible and if an individual requests it, your organisation can directly transmit the information to another organisation.

Can you answer yes to the following questions?

  • Would staff say you have effective data portability processes in place?
  • Would requesters say you gave them clear information?
