Subject Access Requests
We all hate junk mail, whether through our mailbox or pinging into our inbox. But where do these junk mailers get your details anyway? Well, in all likelihood, you’ve signed up for something and either not read the T&Cs properly (seriously, who has time?) or accidentally forgotten to click that little check box that opts you out of marketing. Oops!
Under the UK GDPR, you have a right of access to your data. You have the right to know what personal data companies hold about you. You also have the right to obtain, amend, or delete that data, and you can do so by using something called a Subject Access Request. This will help you understand how and why companies use your data, and you can check they are doing so lawfully.
Outline Learning Objectives:
- Describe what a Subject Access Request (or SAR) is
- Explain how you can make a SAR
- Follow best practice when dealing with a SAR
Why take this course?
A SAR isn’t just for finding out why you’re receiving junk mail. You can use it for obtaining bank statements, pay slips from old employers, CCTV footage, and much more of your personal data. As an individual, you can exercise your right of access, and this course helps you do just that.
As someone that works for an organisation, you may need to know how to respond to a SAR, and this course covers that, too. Pretty neat, right?
