We have a legal duty to reply promptly and at the most within 40 days, starting from the day we receive both any fee (if applicable) and the information needed to identify you and the information you need. If we reasonably need more information to help find your information or identify you, we will write to ask you for the information we need. We will then wait until we have all the necessary information as well as the fee before dealing with your request.

Further information on your rights under data protection can be found at and via the Trust Fair Processing Notice
