Abstract

With the adoption of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on personal data protection in 2016 and its entry into force in 2018, all EU member states were required to provide maximum protection of personal data and individuals.The maximum protections of this regulation are expressed in various provisions, which are more accurate, stricter and more practical than the previous legal frameworks of the European Union and other countries. One of the most important aspects of personal data protection is the flow of different rights to the data subject. In several articles, this regulation refers to the rights of data subjects for the effective protection of their personal data.Given that the protection of personal data and data subjects is an important issue and one of the citizenship rights in any society, the need to examine this issue is also felt in the Iranian legal system.In this study, by stating the mentioned rights from the point of view of the European regulation related to personal data, it becomes clear that although according to the relevant Iranian laws, Iranian legal principles and Imami jurisprudence, some rights of the data subject are also present in Iranian law; However, not all of these rights are provable and the existing rights are not without flaws, so there is a need for legal clarification in this regard.
