GDPR SAR Letter Template - Receipt of Fee

SAR Letter - Receipt of Fee (GDPR-Compliant)


Under the GDPR, data subjects have the right to access their personal data. This is done by means of a data subject access request.

In situations where a request is “manifestly unfounded or excessive”, it is permissible to charge a fee that reflects the true administrative cost of providing the information requested. Note that this position is different to the outgoing Data Protection Act regime under which a fee could always be charged for responding to a subject access request.

This letter template can be used to acknowledge the receipt of such a fee from the data subject. Options cover both the standard response time and the extended response time, confirming what should have already been explained to the data subject in an earlier letter (i.e. when requesting the fee).

This Subject Access Request Letter is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
