You have a right to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you, known as a subject access request. You also have the right to request that information we hold about you which may be incorrect, or which has been changed since you first told us, is updated or removed. These requests are free of charge and can be sent by email to the relevant team by emailing [email protected] or by contacting our Customer Support team via our Livechat service or via email at [email protected].
Upon receipt of an SAR, the relevant team will log and acknowledge the request.
18. Identity verification
We need to check the identity of anyone making a SAR to ensure information is only given to the person who is entitled to it. If the identity of a SAR requester has not already been provided, the person receiving the request may ask the requester for KYC documents to verify the account.
19. Information for Data Subject Access Request
Upon receipt of the required documents, the person receiving the request will provide the relevant team with all relevant information in support of the SAR. Where the Team is reasonably satisfied with the information presented by the person who received the request, the Data Protection Officer will notify the requestor that his/her SAR will be responded to within 30 calendar days. The 30 day period begins from the date that the required documents are received. The requestor will be informed by the Data Protection Team in writing if there will be any deviation from the 30 day timeframe due to other intervening events or if the request is unusually complex.
20. Review of Information
The Team will ensure that the information is reviewed/received by the imposed deadline to ensure the 30 calendar day timeframe is not breached.
21. Response to Access Requests
The Team will provide the finalized response together with the information retrieved and/or a statement that the Company does not hold the information requested, or that an exemption applies.
The Team will ensure that a written response will be sent back to the requestor. This will be via email.
After the response has been sent to the requestor, the SAR will be considered closed and archived by the Team.
An individual does not have the right to access information recorded about someone else, unless they are an authorized representative.
The Company is not required to respond to requests for information unless it is provided with sufficient details to enable the location of the information to be identified, and to satisfy itself as to the identity of the data subject making the request.
In principle, the Company will not normally disclose the following types of information in response to a Data Subject
- Information about other people – A Data Subject Access Request may cover information which relates to an individual or individuals other than the data subject. Access to such data will not be granted, unless the individuals involved consent to the disclosure of their data.
- Repeat requests – Where a similar or identical request in relation to the same data subject has previously been complied with within a reasonable time period, and where there is no significant change in personal data held in relation to that data subject, any further request made within a six month period of the original request will be considered a repeat request, and the Company will not normally provide a further copy of the same data.
- Publicly available information – The Company is not required to provide copies of documents which are already in the public domain.
- Opinions given in confidence or protected by copyright law – The Company does not have to disclose personal data held in relation to a data subject that is in the form of an opinion given in confidence or protected by copyright law.
24. Data Subject Access Request Refusals
There are situations where individuals do not have a right to see information relating to them. For instance:
- If the information is kept only for the purpose of statistics or research, and where the results of the statistical work or research are not made available in a form that identifies any of the individuals involved.
- Requests made for other, non-data protection purposes can be rejected.
If the responsible person refuses a Data Subject Access Request on behalf of the Company, the reasons for the rejection must be clearly set out in writing. Any individual dissatisfied with the outcome of his/her Data Subject Access Request is entitled to make a request to the Data Protection Officer to review the outcome.
The overall responsibility for ensuring compliance with an SAR rests with the Data Protection Officer.
If the Company acts as a data controller towards the data subject making the request then the SAR will be addressed based on the provisions of this procedure.
If the Company acts as a data processor the Data Protection Officer will forward the request to the appropriate data controller on whose behalf the Company processes personal data of the data subject making the request.
