Definition of Right to Be Informed

The Right to Be Informed is a fundamental right that ensures people are informed about their rights and the policies and practices of organizations.

This right plays a crucial role in providing transparency, allowing individuals to make informed decisions.

It includes giving people access to up-to-date information about things like terms and conditions, pricing, data collection or use, service or product quality, health and safety information, etc.

This ensures that all decision-making processes are based on facts rather than speculation.

Professional organizations ensure they are compliant with this right by regularly updating their public websites and other channels with relevant information.
