Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Foundation for Market Information Research (refer to as "SOMI" or the "foundation") is a non-profit organization set up to identify and influence issues of social importance. We focus on the functioning of markets in the areas of privacy, elderly policies, housing and care.
With our current actions, SOMI investigates digital services and advocates for privacy rights by taking actions against the misuse of personal data and violations of GDPR. With this goal, SOMI wants to contribute to the online security and digital sovereignty of individuals. Only if companies are completely transparent about the use of personal data and possible negative consequences, individuals can make informed decisions and exercise control over their private information.
The General Data Protection Regulation or GPDR came into action in 2018 to enforce privacy and data protection in the European Union. GDPR applies to all businesses and organizations established in the EU, regardless of whether the data processing takes place in the EU or not. Even non-EU organizations will be subject to GDPR, if their business offers goods and/or services to citizens in the EU.

GDPR also gives the right for consumers to claim compensation from companies and/or organizations in case the GDPR was breached.
While a big part of GDPR involves imposing requirements on data collectors, it also gives consumers control over their own personal data. At the heart of that effort are two measures popularly known as the “Right of access” and “Right to be forgotten”.

Article 15 of the GDPR grants data subjects the right to obtain access to the personally identifiable material that’s been collected about them. This includes: the categories of data being processed, the purpose of processing and the recipients of those data, or whether automatic decision-making process has been involved.

Moreover, Article 17 of the GDPR dictates that data subjects have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay.
