Subject access requests

个人有权提出主题访问请求。If an individual makes a subject access request, the Charity will tell him/her:

  • whether or not his/her data is processed and if so why, the categories of personal data concerned and the source of the data if it is not collected from the individual;
  • 他/她的数据被或可能被披露给谁,包括位于欧洲经济区(EEA)以外的接收者以及适用于此类转移的保障措施;
  • for how long his/her personal data is stored (or how that period is decided);
  • his/her rights to rectification or erasure of data, or to restrict or object to processing;
  • his/her right to complain to the Information Commissioner if he/she thinks the Charity has failed to comply with his/her data protection rights; and
  • 慈善机构是否执行自动决策以及任何此类决策所涉及的逻辑。

The Charity will also provide the individual with a copy of the personal data undergoing processing. This will normally be in electronic form if the individual has made a request electronically, unless he/she agrees otherwise.

If the individual wants additional copies, the Charity will charge a fee, which will be based on the administrative cost to the Charity of providing the additional copies.

If you wish to activate any of these rights, or to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data, you can contact our office In some cases, the Charity may need to ask for proof of identification before the request can be processed. The Charity will inform the individual if it needs to verify his/her identity and the documents it requires. The Charity will normally respond to a request within a period of one month from the date it is received. In some cases, such as where the Charity processes large amounts of the individual’s data, it may respond within three months of the date the request is received. The Charity will write to the individual within one month of receiving the original request to tell him/her if this is the case.

If a subject access request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, the Charity is not obliged to comply with it. Alternatively, the Charity can agree to respond but will charge a fee, which will be based on the administrative cost of responding to the request. A subject access request is likely to be manifestly unfounded or excessive where it repeats a request to which the Charity has already responded. If an individual submits a request that is unfounded or excessive, the Charity will notify him/her that this is the case and whether or not it will respond to it.
