Data portability

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

Best Practice


  • When requested, your organisation provides personal information 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 entity.


Accountability Test


  1. Would team members say you have effective data portability processes in place?

  2. Would requesters confirm that you gave them clear information?
