All individuals who are the subject of personal data held by BWG Foods have the following rights:
- The right to be informed – You have the right to know if we hold any of your person-al data.
- The right of access – You have the right to see the data we hold about you.
- The right to rectification – You have the right to have inaccurate personal data cor-rected.
- The right to erasure – You have the right to have your personal data erased. This is not an absolute right – there are some exceptions.

Making a Subject Access Request
To see a copy of your own data held by BWG, you will need to submit a written request to the BWG Data Protection Officer enclosing proof of identity, such as staff ID card, or copy of driving licence or passport.
You are encouraged to complete the Subject Access Request Form (see below) to assist BWG in accurately identifying the location(s) of the personal data. However, any request in writing is acceptable. BWG will respond as quickly as possible, but has a maximum of 40 calendar days to respond to your request once it has received all the relevant information.
Subject Access Requests from individuals must be made in writing and addressed to:
Data Protection Officer,
Dublin 24. D24 Y722.
Alternatively, requests can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. BWG will acknowledge your request as soon as it is received and will endeavour to give guidance on how and when the request will be fulfilled.
Exception to Subject Access Requests
Please note that Section 5 of the Data Protection Act provides that the right of access does not apply in a number of cases, in order to strike a balance between the rights of the individual, on the one hand, and the operational requirements of the organisation on the other. For this reason, there are circumstances under which BWG will withhold certain data from disclosure. 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.
Provided below is a standard Subject Access Request form to aid you in making any such requests. Utilizing this form and specifying exactly what data you require will aid BWG in fulfilling your request more promptly.
