Data Subject Rights Letter Template – Acknowledgement and Request for ID Confirmation
Data Subject Rights Letter – Acknowledgement + ID Request
Data protection law in the UK, comprising principally of the GDPR and the
Data Protection Act 2018, provides a range of rights for individuals (“data
subjects”) designed to help protect their personal data as well as their
own rights, interests, and freedoms.
This letter is designed for general use as a first response to a request
from a data subject to exercise their rights. Its wording is open and does
not refer to a specific right. In some cases, if you have cause to doubt
the identity of the individual making the request, it may be appropriate to
request confirmation of their identity. This letter is designed for that
purpose and should also be used to explain why. As such, it also informs
the recipient that the time limit for responding to the request does not
begin until such confirmation is received.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be
read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused
options should be removed from the document.
