How to respond to subject access requests in the summer holidays
Schools must respond to SARs within 1 month, which could be more difficult over the summer. 42% of the DPOs we polled don't know how they'll manage this yet, so we've got you covered with practical solutions and a template letter to extend the deadline for 'complex' requests.
- What are your options?
- Make use of staff who are already working
- Set up a designated email address
- Get processes and logins set up in advance
- Extend the response time if the request is too complex
- Make your position clear in your privacy notices
- What you cannot do
