Before we can act on your request, you will need to supply proof of your identity. This should include a photocopy of the identification pages of your current passport or of a current photo driving licence; and the original of a current utilities bill (for example, gas or electricity), or credit card or bank statement, which includes your name and current address. This can be returned to you if required. If you do not have any of these forms of identification, please contact the Data Protection Officer, who will assist you.
The Data Protection Act allows us 40 calendar days to provide you with your personal information.

If we do hold information about you, you can ask us to correct any mistakes by writing to us at the address above.
