SAR Letter templates

Post by adwils » Wed Feb 20, 2019 6:11 pm

I've seen various templates for communication to bookies.

Could anyone provide links for the following:
SAR requests
Complaints to ICO for ignoring SAR requests
Demanding account closure

Some ideas here from ourt website.

Could anyone provide links for the following:
1. SAR requests: ... -template/ This can be adopted for any situation by changing paragraph one.
2. Complaints to ICO for ignoring SAR requests: ... ction-law/ This is not a letter template, but it outlines contact points, ICO opinions on certain matters, etc.

Possible email:

Subject line: Failure to fulfill a SAR request

Dear Sir/Madam

I sent a subject access request to (enter name of company) on (enter date).

It is over one calendar month since I sent my request and I have heard nothing back from (enter name of company). I was wondering what I need to do next, because it would appear (enter name of company) is refusing to complete my subject access request.

I look forward to receiving your advice as soon as possible. Thanking you in anticipation.

Yours faithfully,

(Enter your full name)

It is worth noting gambling companies licensed in the UK may not be licensed for data protection, so this is useful: ... ee-payers/ or if I were you I would ring to check if a company is not listed. Also, do remember that website names are often brands and the owners will have a different name on the register. In our experience if a company is not licensed for their data management in the UK, the Maltese system is OK, the Gibraltan one is not so, the Isle of Man generally OK, any others useless.

3. Demanding account closure: Just demand it in writing by email or on live chat. A company can't refuse.

I hope all this helps?
