Subject Access Request

Under data protection legislation an individual has the right to access the information that an organisation holds about them. Accessing personal data in this way is known as making a subject access request. (Subject access requests are different to requests submitted under FOI legislation, which relate to information about the organisation itself.)

You are entitled:

  • to be informed whether your personal data are being processed by Parole Scotland
  • to be sent a copy of your personal data (normally as of the date of receipt of your request), subject to any applicable
  • exemptions and the removal of other people's personal data as appropriate
  • to be sent certain information about your personal data

Your subject access request to the Parole Board for Scotland may be submitted in whatever format you wish, but we have created a standard Subject Access Request Form for your convenience, which may be completed and emailed to or sent in the post to the address on the form. Using the form will help us to verify your identity and give a timely and accurate response to your request. There is no charge to make a subject access request.
