  • CCTV camera data on, for example, 23 May 2017 from 11am to 5pm

How St Philip’s Centre will respond to your request

We will acknowledge your request immediately and will respond within one month with a copy of your data. We may need to ask you for more information to help us find the data you have requested and will wait until we have all the necessary data before responding to your request.

We may respond with a copy of your data electronically. If you need your data in another format, you must ask if this is possible.

We will also tell you:

  • What we are using your data for.
  • Who we are sharing your data with.

Refusing a subject access request

We may refuse your subject access request if your data includes information about another individual, except where:

  • the other individual has agreed to the disclosure, or
  • it is reasonable to provide you with this information without the other individual’s consent.

In deciding this, we will balance your right to access your data against the other individual’s rights regarding their own information.

We can also refuse your request if it is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’. In any case we will tell you and will justify our decision.

What to do if you disagree with the outcome or are still unhappy

If you have a concern about the way we are handling your information, that is:

  • we are not keeping your information secure;
  • we hold inaccurate information about you;
  • we have disclosed information about you;
  • we are keeping information about you for longer than is necessary; or
  • we have collected information for one reason and are using it for something else,

we will take your concern seriously and work with you to try to resolve it.

Having done so, if you remain dissatisfied you can make a complaint to the ICO. Their website can be found at and their helpline number is 0303 123 1113.

You can also seek to enforce your rights through the courts. If you decide to do this, we strongly advise that you seek independent legal advice first.

Fees for providing a copy of your data

A copy of your personal data will be provided free but we may charge for additional copies. We can only charge a fee if we think the request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’. If so, we may ask for a reasonable fee for administrative costs associated with the request.
