Subject Access Request

Under GDPR legislation individuals can access the personal data that an organisation holds about them. An individual is entitled to be:

  • told whether any personal data is being processed;
  • given a description of the personal data, the reasons it is being processed, and whether it will be given to any other organisations or people;
  • given a copy of the information comprising the data; and given details of the source of the data (where this is available).

Individuals also have a number of other rights which we must comply with including the rights to:

  • rectify personal data which is incomplete or inaccurate and if necessary inform third parties that this has been done.
  • be informed of how personal data is processed in a transparent manner.
  • have their personal data deleted unless if there is a valid reason not to do this.
  • restrict processing of personal data for certain purposes.
  • object to the processing of personal data in a certain way.
  • have data transferred to a third party so it can be reused (data portability).
  • have a say in whether automated decisions are being made using the personal data and insist on an actual person intervening.
