Post hoc interventions and the General Data Protection Regulation

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/Conference proceedingKapitel samlingsverkForskning


Post hoc interventions rely on having access to certain personal data - such as the gender, age, ethnicity, and sexual orientation of the persons being evaluated - in order to detect and correct for prejudice. This brings these interventions into possible tension with pertinent data protection legislation, which might restrict the processing of said data. We discuss the compatibility of post hoc interventions, more specifically the Generalized Informed Interval Scale Update (GIIU), and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In particular, we investigate the legality of applying GIIU to datasets which haven't been collected with consent from the data subjects that their data is to be processed by GIIU. We conclude that many such applications are in compliance with the GDPR, but others, specifically those where the processing includes special categories of personal data that is considered sensitive, might not be.
