                  Re: SAR request template

                  Here's one I sent myself a few days ago, bit longer than the other ones and slightly different. I've put in brackets the additional information that may be included depending on the nature of the request.

                  Dear Sir or Madam,

                  Data Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 1998

                  I wish to request access to personal data of which I am the data subject, in accordance with my right under the Data Protection Act 1998, section 7. I am happy for this information to be provided to me in electronic form on a USB drive or a password protected PDF (the password to be sent separately).

                  I enclose a cheque for £10, the maximum fee permitted for complying with my request.

                  I also enclose a copy of my [passport / driving licence] so that you are satisfied of my identity. My full name is [XYZ] as shown on my [passport / driving licence]. I am also referred to as [other names or nicknames] which may assist you when searching for any email records.

                  The data that I am seeking is all personal data of which I am the data subject that has been processed by or on behalf of [name of business]. [In particular, I wish to include personal data concerning [details of what you want] which was processed between [date] and date]].

                  [Where the processing of personal data of which I am the data subject has been carried out by automatic means and has constituted or is likely the constitute the sole basis for any decision significantly affecting me, please inform me of the logic of that decision-making.]

                  [The data I wish to access is all personal data of which I am the data subject which has been processed by or on behalf of [insert name of employer][ and, in particular, to include personal data concerning [specify subject matter] processed between [date] and [date.

                  I [am OR was] employed as [job title] by [name of employer] [from OR until] [date] and believe that personal data of which I am the data subject will have been processed by [job titles, names of individuals or relevant departments] including but not limited to emails and documents held in electronic form.]

                  Once you have identified personal data belonging to me, please can you provide me with a description of the personal data together with:

                  • an explanation of the purposes for which the data is being or is to be processed
                  • the names of the recipients or classes of recipients to whom it is or may be disclosed
                  • information as to the source(s) of the data
                  • [the logic of any automated decision-making.]

                  I look forward to your reply within 40 days of receiving my request.

                  Yours faithfully
