Subject access request

Under the Data Protection Act 1998, you have the right to access personal information we hold about you. This is known as making a subject access request.

We have 40 days from the date we receive your request, fee and verification of identity to provide you with a response.  Please note that asking for specific information may help us process your request sooner than if you request all your information.  For example, you may only be looking for information between specific dates.  However, we will always endeavour to respond to your request as soon as possible.

Once we receive your request we will contact you to arrange payment and request verification of identity, such as a photo driving licence or passport, if not provided at this stage. The fee is £10 per request.

If you would like to make a request, please complete the form below and we will process your request as soon as possible.
