You have the right to ask for a copy of any of your personal data held by Us (where such data is held). 

As a general rule, you are not required to pay any charge for exercising your rights. However Data Protection Law permits Us to charge a reasonable fee to cover Our administrative costs in replying to a subject access request where we are of the opinion that the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive or where you request additional copies of information.

If you make a subject access request, We generally have one month to respond to you. Where We have requested a fee (see above) then the one month period starts from when it receives the fee.

When making a subject access request to Us would ask that your request includes the following:

· a clear label for your request (e.g. use ‘subject access request’ as your email subject line or a heading for your letter);

· the date of your request;

· your name;

· any other information used by the organisation to identify or distinguish you from other individuals (e.g. customer account number or employee number);

· your up-to-date contact details;

· a comprehensive list of what personal data you want to access, based on what you need;

· any details, relevant dates, or search criteria that will help the organisation identify what you want;

· how you would like to receive the information (e.g. by email or hard copy)

If you wish to make a request, please contact Us using the contact details given below in section 13.  

If you have made a number of requests or your request is complex, We may need extra time to consider your request, in which case we will let you know within the initial one month period and informing you of the need for extra time. In that case we are allowed up to an extra two months to respond to your request.
