General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) allows an individual the right to access their personal data that CompainesInTheUK hold on them.

Natural Persons Only

Note, that this right only refers to an individual's personal data.  If you require information on a company, then just use our website.  A Subject Access Request is for people data not a company’s data.

You already have access to the data

CompaniesInTheUK holds no ‘secret’ files on people.  All the information we have is readily available on the website.

If you are or have been a director of a company, then we display this information along with the company.  Just search for your name on the website.

If you have registered with our website, then all the information we hold about you is available on the ‘Your Account’ page, linked to from the footer on this page.

You will discover nothing new asking for a Subject Access Request that we do not already display on our website.

You will be required to prove your identity to us

We treat your personal data very seriously.  To guard against any Tom, Dick or Harry requesting that we disclose your personal data to them via a Subject Access Request we will require you to prove that you are who you say you are.

To do this we will require two forms of ID.  One government issued ID showing your full name and birthdate, such as a scan of your passport photo page or a drivers license. 

To request a Subject Access Request, please supply:

  • Your name and email address
  • Your date of birth
  • The Companies House Registration Numbers of any companies you have been associated with, this is so we can locate the data.
  • Attach a scan of some Government Issued Id, such as a driver's license or Passport so that we can be sure you are the person you are claiming to be.  

    We receive a lot of fraudulent requests for data removal.  For example, companies asking for competitors information to be removed.  Without a scan of some proof you are who you say you are we will not action any request, nor reply to your ticket.
