Here's hoping someone can advise me on the following.
I recently requested all information held about me at my former employers, their answer was as follows:
Good Afternoon Pete.
As Data Controller, I am required to confirm your identity to ensure I am satisfied with your request prior to release of Personal Data.
Please can you confirm the following:
Start and end date at xxxxxxxx Ltd.
Place of birth
Name of person to contact in emergency ( held in Personnel file)
Name of last school attended
Name of any Collages attended (if at all)
Any convictions (If any)
I also require a copy of photo ID to be sent.
This seems a little excessive, or, is this a normal response? ( and yes, I dd notice colleges was spelt incorrectly )
