You should complete this form if you want us to supply you with a copy of any personal data we hold about you. You are currently entitled to receive this information under the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and will continue to be under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into effect on 25 May 2018. We will also provide you with information about any processing of your personal data that is being carried out, the retention periods which apply to your personal data, and any rights to rectification, erasure, or restriction of processing that may exist.
Note that the Data Protection Act 2018 makes a specific exemption from this procedure for the publication of judgments and other decisions of a court or tribunal (schedule 1 part 2 paragraph 26), and requests to supply such data (which, if we hold them at all, are already freely available on this site) will be declined. Requests to amend such data must be addressed to the originating court or tribunal.
Because of the need to verify your identity, we will accept only written requests for data. This request is subject to a £10 administration fee.
We will endeavour to respond promptly and in any event within one month of the latest of the following:
The information you supply in this form will only be used for the purposes of identifying the personal data you are requesting and responding to your request. You are not obliged to complete this form to make a request, but doing so will make it easier for us to process your request quickly.
 Yes, I am the data subject. I enclose proof of my identity. Proceed to section 4.
 No, I am acting on behalf of the data subject. I have enclosed the data subject's written authority and proof of the data subject's identity and my own identity. Complete section 3.
"Proof of identity" for this purpose consists of a photocopy or scanned image of one document from each of list A and list B:
List A: Passport, photo driving licence, national identity card, birth certificate.
List B: Utility bill, bank statement, credit card statement (no more than 3 months old); current driving licence; current TV licence; local authority tax bill, HMRC tax document (no more than 1 year old).
Documents will not be returned. Do not send originals. If we are not satisfied you are who you claim to be, we reserve the right to refuse to grant your request.
Please describe the information you are seeking. Please provide any relevant details you think will help us to identify the information you require.
Please note that if the information you request reveals details directly or indirectly about another person we will have to seek the consent of that person before we can let you see that information. In certain circumstances, where disclosure would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others, we may not be able to disclose the information to you, in which case you will be informed promptly and given full reasons for that decision.
While in most cases we will be happy to provide you with copies of the information you request, we nevertheless reserve the right, in accordance with section 8(2) of the DPA, not to provide you with copies of information requested if to do so would take "disproportionate effort", or in accordance with Article 12 of the GDPR to charge a fee or refuse the request if it is considered to be "manifestly unfounded or excessive". However we will make every effort to provide you with a satisfactory form of access or summary of information if suitable.
If you want information about any of the following, please tick the boxes:
 Why we are processing your personal data
 To whom your personal data are disclosed
 The source of your personal data
Please note that any attempt to mislead may result in prosecution.
