Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) Policy


You have a right to request a copy of information that the Council holds about you. This is known as a Data Subject Access Request (or DSAR).

The Data Protection Act 2018 gives you a right to see a copy of the information an organisation holds about you. However, the right of access goes further than this and an individual who makes a request is entitled to be:

  • told whether any personal data is being processed (whether the Council is using or holding information)
  • told what personal information we hold about you, why we hold it, how we use it and who, if anyone, we may share it with
  • given a copy of the information and details of where the information came from (where this is available)

This policy provides you with the information you need to make a request for your personal information. If you need any further information, please contact the Information Governance Team.
