I'm about to send my Subject Access Request to Barclays on an account I had with them between 1989 to Nov 2001. It would seem they hold statements going back 12 years (according to the sticky by zootscoot see link below), should this be mentioned in the letter? Can I rely on Barclays to supply all the info or do you think they need a prod?

Thanks hod, I'm new to the barclays forum. I've been living on the HSBC forum as I've had a claim going through with them since Feb. A couple of days a go I read the big thread on claiming back charges further back than the 6 years which is when I had the Barclays account. Then yesterday out of the blue I remembered the account number. I rang them yesterday and found out the sort code and closure date 'for my records'. :D

 

I am using the SAR template off of this site but just wondered if it was worth mentioning the 12 years.

 

I'll leave it as it is and see what they send.

 

Cheers.

The template asks for 'a complete history' of your account.

 

That said, I used the template, and only got 6 years worth, so now I'm going the non-compliance route to try to get the rest. Maybe it would be worth saying 'I am informed that you retain account data for at least 12 years, and I request all such data held in my name...' or suchlike; let them know that you know they DO have more than 6 years worth of info.

 

Bankers are sneaky. Don't let them wriggle off the hook.

that's what I'm thinking David. Adding a piece like that may clarify what they need to do somewhat. :)

I'd try to keep it as simple as possible at this stage. Just let them know that you know how much they know, and you want to know it all. Then they'll know no more than you know, so that's fair, you know?

 

All clear now?

Data Protection Act 1998

Subject Access Request

 

 

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

 

ACCOUNT NUMBER: 99999999 99-99-99 (closed 7th Nov 2001)

 

Please supply me with a complete list of transactions and charges relating to my banking history with your organisation. Alternatively, a complete set of statements for that period will be acceptable. I am informed that you retain account data for at least 12 years, and I request all such data held in my name.

 

Additionally, where there has been any event in my account history over this period which has required manual intervention by any member of your staff, or any other person, I require disclosure of any indication or notes which have either caused or resulted in that manual intervention, or other evidence of that manual intervention in relation to my banking business with you.

 

If you are unable to supply this data because there has been no such manual intervention, then please be so kind as to confirm this in your response.

 

I enclose the statutory maximum fee of £10. You have 40 days in which to comply. Furthermore, if I discover that you have levied disproportionate penalties against me, then I shall be reclaiming them, and also reclaiming the enclosed £10 Data Protection Act subject access request fee.

 

If there is specific information which you require in order to satisfy yourself as to my identity, please let me know by return. My address at the time I closed the above account was ..... I would be happy to collect the Data from my local branch.

 

 

Yours faithfully,

 

 

Anyone see any issues with that? It's the standard one plus an additional bit mention data retention of 12 years and also a bit on my change of address. Cheers. ;)

seen it loads for times, can't find it now

something similar, I think the thrust is to say that if they insist they hold no records beyond a certain date, you ask for an affidavit sating as much, signed by their data compliance officer

 

Please provide the following:

Where any previous information or records held have been deleted or disposed of, the methods used to do so, including dates, certificates or references confirming details of destruction. Where you are unable to provide such certificates, please provide a declaration, signed by an authorised officer of your company, confirming the dates and methods of destruction of this data

right, I sent the snotty letter on Friday (received Monday) threatening court action if they do not supply the statements I require and guess what came in the post today. :D

 

the cheeky monkeys have only sent 28th Dec 2000 > 7th Nov 2001 (when the account was closed) even though I requested all info held which I believe was going back 12 years. If that info was not available then I required confirmation of disposal of data, the exact wording is in the letter above.

 

 

I guess it's time for another letter. :mad:

How's this for a follow up? It's the template letter plus some of the original. Is 7 days enough do you think? They've already had far more than the 40 days I'd allowed.

Dear Sir/Madam

 

ACCOUNT NUMBER: ******** **-**-** (closed 7th Nov 2001)

I am in receipt of the documents that you have supplied in response to my Data Protection Act information request dated 27th April 2007. The disclosure of personal data is incomplete in that at least the following documents are missing.

 

1) You have failed to provide a complete list of transactions and charges. For the period prior to 28th Dec 2000. Where any previous information or records held have been deleted or disposed of, the methods used to do so, including dates, certificates or references confirming details of destruction. Where you are unable to provide such certificates, please provide a declaration, signed by an authorised officer of your company, confirming the dates and methods of destruction of this data

2) You have provided no notes, or documents relating to instances of manual intervention. If you are unable to supply this data because there has been no such manual intervention, then please be so kind as to confirm this in your response.

This is not an exhaustive list by any means, it is just an example of some of the information I am missing.

 

Accordingly, I have to tell you that you have not yet complied with your obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998.

 

You have a further 7 days to comply.

 

Yours faithfully,
