Data protection law

Normally there is no charge for responding to requests under data protection law. However, in some limited circumstances the law permits us to charge a fee to cover the administrative costs of answering your request. For example, if you request further copies of information previously supplied to you. Where this is the case we will inform you before responding to your request.
