Proof of ID is required to process subject access requests, e.g. driver’s license or passport.  Please note depending of the nature of the request additional ID maybe required. Dublin BIC Data Protection advocates will discuss this requirement for additional ID if required prior to the request being processed.

Response time to a subject access request

Your subject access request will be acknowledged within five working days. A response to your request will be given no later than a month of receipt of the request. The one month period may be extended by two further months, where necessary, taking into account the complexity and number of requests. In this case, Dublin BIC shall inform you of any extension within one month of receipt of the request and the reasons for the delay.

If Dublin BIC does not take action of your request, Dublin BIC must inform you without delay and, at the latest, within one month of receipt of your request, of:

The reasons for not taking action;
Your right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority and seek a judicial remedy.

Cost of submitting a subject access request

Your request will be dealt with free of charge. However, where requests from a data subject are considered ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example where an individual continues to make unnecessary repeat requests or the problems associated with identifying one individual from a collection of data are too great) Dublin BIC may:

Charge a reasonable fee, considering the administrative costs of providing the information/ taking the action requested; or
Refuse to act on your request.

Where Dublin BIC refuses to respond to an access request or to charge a fee on this basis, Dublin BIC shall bear the burden of demonstrating the manifestly unfounded or excessive character of the request.
