Requests for personal information

Requests from the individual 

If you want to access your own personal data, or you have authority to act on behalf of an individual, you can submit a Subject Access Request. 

A subject access request can be emailed to and should include the following information: 

  • Your name, identification and contact details 
  • Any other name by which you were known to Taith 
  • A description of the information you are seeking. Where possible please include: 
  • the time period covering your request 
  • specific Taith documents 

If you are making a request on behalf of somebody else, please provide a copy of the authority for you to make this request on their behalf. 

The identification we require is as follows: 

  • Copy valid passport or driving licence 

For requests made on behalf of others, third party UK legal firms acting on behalf of the subject, we require a form of authority to act on the subject’s behalf in relation to SAR 

Taith may need to seek additional information from requesters to identify the subject or to establish the authority to receive information. We may also need to consult with third parties where information contains their personal data as well as the data subjects. 

Further information can be found on your right to access your personal information on the Information Commissioner’s website at:Your right of access | ICO
