DSAR SUPPORT SERVICE
DSAR SUPPORT SERVICE
The GDPR requires you to respond quickly and effectively – specifically, within 30 days – to requests from individuals about their personal data. These requests, known as DSARs (data subject access requests) must be processed without charge.
DSARs can be a substantial administrative burden, particularly as they must all be treated individually. There are many challenges to address within a short timeframe:
- Recognising the receipt of a DSAR.
- Verifying the identity of the requester. Where requests are made on behalf of others, such as through a legal representative, you need to ensure the third party making the request is authorised to act on behalf of the individual.
- Assessing whether the request is valid, and what information is to be provided.
- Reviewing collected information and redacting data relating to third parties where their consent is unavailable.
GDPR DSAR Support Service
Relentless can provide the right level of support to you throughout this complex process with our GDPR DSAR Support Service. The Relentless team of experienced data privacy lawyers and data protection Officers will manage the end to end process on your behalf to ensure requests are completed in accordance with, and in the timeframe prescribed by, the GDPR data protection act. This involves:
- Reviewing and assessing the nature and validity of the DSAR request;
- Confirmation of the individual’s identity;
- Locating the data – liaising with the department or person or to provide all the personal information relating to the data subject;
- Information vetting – obtaining consent from third-party individuals where their personal information is contained within the search results and, where it is unobtainable, applying redactions and exemptions;
- Formally disclosing the information to the individual; and
- Documenting the facts relating to the DSARs.
