The UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals.


You can change the details we hold by emailing or calling our helpline on 0303 123 1113.

You need to include your:

  • registration number (eg ZA123456)
  • security number (if you can't find it, let us know and we'll resend it to the main contact)

We will let you know when we have made the change, and send you a copy of your amends. Your changes will be dated from the day we receive your change request.

Please note: we do not send automated responses to emails and we will only contact you if there is a problem with the request for change.

For information about what we do with personal data see our privacy notice.


If you no longer need to pay a data protection fee, please inform us by following the instructions above.  If you cancel and pay by direct debit, you'll also need to cancel your direct debit with your bank or building society.

How long will it take?

Due to an increase of work being received by the data protection fee team, it is currently taking us a few weeks to make changes. Please accept our apology for any inconvenience.
