What is Personal Data Protection? Simply put, it is a policy/law concerning the right to privacy and the right to decide on their own personal data.
A background check will not preclude this. Therefore, it is smart to have privacy in mind when planning and conducting background checks or other processes in which one processes personal information.
As an individual you have completely distinct rights: You may at any time request access, rectification and deletion, and your desires / restrictions should be taken into account. The process should primarily ensure your rights, but also prevent your information from being shared or snatched.
Businesses should naturally follow the law, but should also create their own guidelines that are relevant to the activities they have.
