Definition Edit

The Individual Participation Principle is

one of the eight Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs) developed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). As stated in the FIPPs, according to this principle, an individual should have the right:
(a) To obtain from the data controller, or otherwise, confirmation of whether or not the data controller has data relating to him;
(b) To have communicated to him, data relating to him:
  • Within a reasonable time;
  • At a charge, if any, that is not excessive;
  • In a reasonable manner; and
  • In a form that is readily intelligible to him;
(c) To be given reasons if a request made under subparagraphs (a) and (b) is denied, and to be able to challenge such denial; and
(d) To challenge data relating to him and, if the challenge is successful, to have the data erased, rectified, completed, or amended.[1]
