Data Subject Rights Letter – Receipt of Fee
Data protection law in the UK, comprising principally of the UK 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 acknowledging your receipt of a fee requested for a “manifestly unfounded” or “excessive” request, and further informs the individual of the time limit for your response (one month from the date that the fee was received).
In some cases, particularly where a request is complex (or numerous), the normal time limit can be extended. If it is clear that you will need the additional time at the outset, an alternative template is available which includes reference to that extension.
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.
