What is a Data Subject Access Request?

Under the rules of the GDPR, any individual whose data is being held by an organisation can make a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR). In simple terms, this is an appeal in writing for any information held by the company that relates to the data subject.

A Data Subject Access Request does not need to be made directly by an individual – it can also be be submitted by a representative. Plus, the term ‘in writing’ includes e-mail and social media as well as other conventional means such as a written letter.
