Automated decision making

The GDPR states that an individual has the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing (including profiling) which produces legal implications concerning him or her or significantly affects him or her. Automated decision making means decisions are being made by computers only i.e.  without any human intervention.

Examples include:

  • Use of an algorithm to automatically accept or deny an online credit application
  • An automated processing of CVs that evaluates (profiles) personal aspects of individuals to determine if they will qualify for a position
  • Automated monitoring of an employee’s productivity used to automatically determine their pay

In the GDPR compliance app, select the relevant option in the organisation interview. Then, under Governance, complete the Automated Decision Making Details section.
