Subject Access Requests (SAR)
A Subject Access Request (SAR) allows an individual (or a party on behalf of the individual) to make a written request for information which they are entitled to ask for, as it relates to that individual, under section 7 of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and may be held by the Independent Monitoring Authority (IMA). You can send Subject Access Requests to:

We recommend that all Subject Access Requests are sent to the IMA via email, where possible, to expedite the process.
