Subject Access Requests can appear incredibly stressful; however, if you respond honestly and promptly, you should find the process to be very easy.

Do not be tempted to delete data you think may reflect badly. Unless this data falls within your standard deletion policy, do not delete the data. This will most likely lead to a huge increase in fines, even if you have not broken any of the GDPR.

If you receive a SAR you will need to send copies of your GDPR documents to the person - failure to do this could result in enforcement action from the ICO, fines, and even legal action.

Don't delay the process without good reason. You must respond quickly or face even further fines or investigation!
