The Data Protection Act (2018), General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and our Data Protection Policy give any individual the right to obtain confirmation if their data is being processed by us and to have access to the personal data we hold. The right of access to this information is referred to as Subject Access Request (SAR).
We aim to provide access to personal data within one month of receipt of a subject access request. If a request is complex, an extension of up to a further two months may be requested from the individual making the request. The Data Protection Officer, or a member of our team, will communicate regularly with individuals where this is the case.
A copy of the information will be provided free of charge. However, a reasonable fee may be charged if a request is found to be excessive, or where information is requested repeatedly. We will always notify the individual making a request if we intend to make a charge, and the reason for making a charge.
