You have a right to obtain confirmation we hold your data, access to your data and the information we should have already made you aware of in our privacy notice. This type of request is often referred to as a Subject Access Request (SAR) and relates to living individuals.
The council must be confident of your identity before any information can be released. The simplest way of achieving this is to provide us with two proofs of identity. This would apply to you and anyone you are requesting information on behalf of - for example, a passport, driving licence.
If you are requesting your child’s information you will need to supply evidence of parental responsibility e.g. your child’s birth certificate.
Originals are not required, any copies must be of good quality, and Customer Service Centres can take authenticated copies to assist in making any request.
