If you believe that the FSI holds any personal data about you please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
- Full name
- Contact telephone number
- Information we may hold that will enable us to identify or distinguish you from others of the same name
- Details of the specific information you require and any relevant dates.
We will get back in contact with you within the 40-day deadline that applies when dealing with requests to provide personal information.
You have the right to get a copy of the information that is held about you. This is known as a subject access request.
This right of subject access means that you can make a request under the Data Protection Act to any organisation processing your personal data. The Act calls these organisations ‘data controllers’.
You can ask the organisation you think is holding, using or sharing the personal information you want, to supply you with copies of both paper and computer records and related information.
However, it is important to remember that not all personal information is covered and there are ‘exemptions’ within the Act which may allow an organisation to refuse to comply with your subject access request in certain circumstances.
