The AKI re-examined complaint about financial service provider’s incomplete response to data subject’s access request after appeal.

English Summary


The appellant complained that the company, in response to his access request, provided an incomplete dataset in English.


Could Article 15 GDPR be exercised although the personal are expected to be already possessed by the data subject?


The DPA found that much of the data that the complainant found as missing is data that the complainant is expected to possess. So, it concluded that the company is not obliged to provide data that the data subject already possesses under Articles 13(4) and 14(5)(a) GDPR. Thus, the DPA found that the company has adequately fulfilled the obligation to inform the data subject of the data processing as required by Articles 13-15 GDPR. Finally, the DPA pointed out that the complainant had indicated in its customer profile a language preference to use English, which justifies the data export in English (Article 12(1) GDPR).
