Responding to data subject access requests

Right of access: Data subject access requests (or DSARs) are part and parcel of day-to-day compliance with data protection laws. In addition to their existing rights to privacy, individuals (or data subjects) have a right to request the information that a company holds on them.

Obligation to respond: When a data subject submits a data subject access request, you are obliged to respond to it. For this, you would need a suite of documents to help you carry out this process.
