Definition of Data Subject Access Request (DSAR)

A Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) is a request made by an individual to a website or organization in regards to their personal data.

This includes any information relating to the individual, such as name, contact information, financial information and so forth.

DSARs are part of GDPR regulations in the EU, which requires websites and organizations to respond to these requests within one month.

Organizations must provide individuals with access to, or a copy of, their data and allow them to make changes or delete it if they wish.

By responding to DSARs swiftly and accurately, businesses can ensure compliance with GDPR requirements.
