How to make Subject Access Request for Personal Information

Under the Data Protection Act 2002, you have a right of access to your personal data and to check the accuracy of that data by making a Subject Access Request.

A subject access request is made by writing to the Data Protection Officer (DPO) of the Department, Office or Board that collects the information.

To make a request of the DPO for the Cabinet Office write to:

DPO, Cabinet Office,
Government Office,
Buck's Road,
Douglas,
Isle of Man,
IM1 3PN


There may be a charge of up to £10 to provide the information you have requested. If you request access to health records, a fee of up to £50 may be charged.

Subject access requests must be responded to promptly and in any event within a maximum of 40 calendar days.

The Information Commissioner is the independent authority responsible for upholding the public's information rights and promoting and enforcing compliance with the Island's information rights legislation. Further information can be found on the Information Commissioner's website.

You have the right to request the Information Commissioner to undertake an assessment as to whether the processing of your personal data has been carried out in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 2002.
