Data Protection Subject Access Requests

Article 15 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entitles individuals to the right to access their personal data. Requests under Article 15 are now referred to as Right of Access requests, but are more commonly known as Subject Access Requests.

If you would like to make a request, please feel free to email us at dataprotection@city.ac.uk, or alternatively feel free to contact us at our street address listed below.

So that we may answer your request fully, please provide as much information as you can about the information and where we can find it. Information which would be helpful is:

  • The name(s) of the College, School or other area in whose records you would like us to look for information about you. You may want to think about the areas of the University with which you have had contact.
  • The type of information you are interested in.
  • The date range of the information.

Freedom of Information/Environmental Information Regulations

The Freedom of Information Act (FOI) and Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) give you rights to access official information.

You can ask for any information you think a public authority may hold. The right only covers recorded information which includes information held on computers, in emails and in printed or handwritten documents as well as images, video and audio recordings.

You should identify the information you want as clearly as possible.

Your request can be in the form of a question, rather than a request for specific documents, but the authority does not have to answer your question if this would mean creating new information or giving an opinion or judgment that is not already recorded.

Some information may not be given to you because it is exempt, for example because it would unfairly reveal personal details about somebody else.

You don't have to know whether the information you want is covered by the Environmental Information Regulations or the Freedom of Information Act. When you make a request, it is for the public authority to decide which law they need to follow.

To make a request to City, please email FOI@city.ac.uk. We do not charge a fee for FOI and EIR requests.

However, please check first whether or not the information you seek access to is available via the City, University of London FOI Publication Scheme.
