The ICO exists to empower you through information.

We’ve created this subject access request template to help sole traders, small business owners, and small organisations manage incoming subject access requests.

People have the right to ask for copies of their personal data stored and used by your small business.

You can use our ‘Ask for copies of your data’ template below on your website to help you understand and organise these requests. You’ll first need to amend the template to suit the needs of your business, such as by adding your business name and contact information in the spaces provided.

While it can be helpful for people to ask for copies of their data using your form, they don’t have to use it if they don’t want to.
