Data Subject Access Requests, also known as DSARs, can take up a lot of time for an organisation. Requests can involve searching large unstructured data sets, de-duplication, redacting sensitive data that doesn’t form part of the request, and also include prescribed response timelines.

Our goal is to take the burden off organisations by automating and streamlining the DSAR process through a secure, cloud-based and industry leading platform that is widely used in the legal industry.

What is a data subject access request?

Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs) are requests made by individuals who would like know what information you have and be granted access to the personal data that your company holds about them. These requests are a fundamental right under data protection regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). DSARs can include a wide range of information, such as personal details, communication records, financial data, and more. It is essential that organisations handle DSARs efficiently and effectively to ensure compliance and protect the privacy of individuals.
