As a data subject, you have the right to dispute the inaccuracy or error in your personal data and have the PIC correct the same within a reasonable period of time.

Does my right to rectify under the Data Privacy Act 2012 include instances where correction requires a court order?

No. The right to rectification excludes instances where rectification or correction requires an order from a competent court, other pertinent government agencies, or otherwise covered by an official process under other applicable laws and regulations.

Can a PIC deny my request for rectification? ​

Yes. The request for rectification may be denied if the same is manifestly unfounded, vexatious, or otherwise unreasonable. A request may be considered as such when it is made with no real purpose other than to harass, cause annoyance, or hamper the delivery and performance of service.
