Write the Request

Important Notes:

  • Write your request in simple, precise language.
  • Ask for specific documents, information or clarification concerning the processing of your personal data.
  • Keep it focused and concise.
  • Try to keep the personal information provided to the minimum necessary to identify yourself. This way we will be able to automatically edit out your personal data from the request, which you will want to share to help others (but not share the response, of course!)
  • Consider submitting separate requests with the same controller when the responses are expected to have a different quality to them (document vs explanation, for instance)
Dear Cambridge Analytica, Under the purview of EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and the UK Data Protection Act 1988, I wish to: 1. know whether your company or any of its processors hold any of my personal data; 2. know how you classify this data into the different categories recognized by law (categories for sensitive data, etc); 3. know for what purposes you process this data; 4. know the legal basis of such processing (if you rely on consent, please be specific on when I might have given consent and how); 5. know the legal bases of potential transfers of such personal data to the United States, for each vendor; 6. for each data point, obtain full information as to its source; 7. get an explanation on the "logic of the processing" of my personal data; 8. obtain a copy of all my personal data. It is my understanding that for some of these you are allowed to charge, up to a maximum of GBP 10. Please let me know if you will charge a fee for this. I trust that you will do your best to respond to my request as quickly as possible, or that you will, at the very least, respect the deadlines mandated by law. If there is any delay in responding to my request, I would ask you to submit partial responses to be completed as additional information becomes available. I particularly wish to attract your attention to the "General provisions relating to offences" articles in the Data Protection Act 1988, as they pertain to liabilities by body corporates, but also the personal liability of any officer in such body.

Optional. This information will be sent alongside any request you make. It is meant to help the data controller link your different identities together.


If you check this, your name will still appear in requests to data controllers, but we will do our best to not display it publicly. However, we cannot guarantee your anonymity

If you don't want your request to be public right now, uncheck this. You can always decide to make it public later.

Do you want to make sure that the information you are requesting isn't already available?
