These circumstances will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and in line with current Data Protection Legislation and best practice.

You may only request personal data held about yourself (or of a minor for whom you are parent/guardian).  The Data Protection Officer will always verify the identity of anyone making a subject access request before handing over any information.  You will be required to verify your identification before BWG Foods can release any information to you.
