Home > Data Deletion Request

A data deletion request is a legal request to have your personal data removed from a company’s records. The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you the right to have your personal information deleted if it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was obtained or if you withdraw consent to its use.

Data deletion requests are often referred to as subject access requests (SARs) or subject access requests (SARs). There is no legal difference between them; they are the same thing.

What Does a Data Deletion Request Involve?

If you want your personal data deleted, then you should use a SAR or SAR. This document will help you understand what is involved in making such a request: You can make a SAR or SAR for any reason. You do not need any special reason or justification for making one.

When making a SAR or SAR, it is important that you provide enough information about yourself so that the organization can find and identify the personal data it holds about you, but remember that too much information may delay the processing of your request by causing confusion amongst staff members who need to work together on it – so try to be as specific as possible without being overly detailed.
