National Supervisors Forum Access Request Policy & Procedures

The NSF Data Subject Access Request Policy ensures that the NSF complies with requests made under the provisions of the data protection legislation.

Individuals may make a request to the NSF as a right to establish the existence of personal data. Under data protection legislation, an individual may make a data subject access request asking whether or not the NSF holds personal data on them.

Any such data subject access request must be made to the NSF in writing indicating that the access request is being made under data protection legislation. Before the NSF responds to the request, it may be
necessary to establish that satisfactory evidence of the identity and address of the requester has been provided by the data subject requester.

Where such a request is made, the NSF shall respond either outlining the information held or outlining the course of action that the requester should follow to ensure a valid request. In order for a data subject access request to be valid, the request needs to be submitted to the NSF in writing and the letter must be signed and dated. The requester must be as specific as possible about the data sought. Evidence of proof of identity and address must be included in the request application. Data subject access requests by telephone, email or text message will not be accepted by the NSF. Please note that the NSF may not provide the data requested if the access request does not meet the requirements as outlined above, as provided for by data protection legislation.

Under data protection legislation there is no charge for making a data subject access request.

On receipt of a valid written data subject access request under the data protection legislation, the data subject should receive a copy of any personal data held by the NSF on their behalf within the statutory
prescribed timescale.

If the data subject is not satisfied with the outcome of the access request, they are entitled to make a complaint to the Data Protection Commissioner who may investigate the matter.

Overall responsibility for ensuring compliance with data subject access requests made under data protection legislation rests with the NSF.

Privacy Statement

The National Supervisors Forum (NSF) is the body established to provide support, education and advocacy to member Board Oversight Committees in the Republic of Ireland and Supervisory Committees in Northern Ireland.

Part A: Information applicable to NSF members

The NSF is fully committed to keeping all personal data submitted by its members/volunteers/sub-contractors/contacts (i.e. Data Subjects) fully safe and secure during administrative processes.

All necessary technical measures have been put in place to ensure the safety and security of the systems which hold this data. Transparency and openness in the use of personal data held are highly important to the NSF and it therefore endeavours to fully inform all Data Subjects of the purpose(s) for which their data is collected and how it will be used and why, where elsewhere it may be shared and why and how long their data may be retained by the NSF.

The Data Controller for the collection and processing of all personal data is the NSF. The Data Protection Officer can be contacted via the NSF Secretary at

Personal data processed by the NSF will only be used for the specific purpose(s) for which it is collected and will only be used in accordance with the data protection legislation in force at the time of collection.

When you provide personal data to the NSF, you currently have the following rights:

  • access to your data
  • rectification of your data
  • erasure of your data
  • right to lodge a complaint with the Data Commissioner
  • restriction of processing
  • data portability
  • objection to processing
  • withdraw consent if they previously gave it in relation to processing of your personal data relating to automated decision making, including profiling.

Part B – Information specific to the personal data being collected

The following data is specific information in relation to the personal data processed for training course/fora applications.

Specified purpose: The personal data sought from you is required for the purpose of providing training/booking a place on a training course/forum.

Failure to provide the personal data required to facilitate training provision/the training application process may result in the NSF being unable to process training applications/provide training.

The NSF collects your personal data based on your consent.

Recipients: Information provided as part of the application process will on occasion be shared with other organisations, such as the ILCU or training institutions such as University of Limerick/LIA, but only where there is a valid basis to do so, such as accreditation or participation on a training course. Personal information may be released under the terms of the relevant data protection legislation in force.

Personal data may be used for statistical, research and analysis purposes in some circumstances but will only be done so in compliance with the data protection legislation in force. Data used for such purposes will be pseudonymised (masked) or anonymised, as appropriate, to protect the security and confidentiality of the data. The use of the data in this way may facilitate future training initiatives and considerations.

Information provided in support of a training course/forum application will not be transmitted outside of the EU.

Retention Period: The data submitted by the Data Subject for training course applications will be retained by the NSF only for as long as there is a business need to do so in line with the purposes for which it was collected (i.e. accreditation).

The personal data requested/provided by/to the NSF is on a voluntary, non-statutory basis.

Automated Decision Making: Personal data provided in the submission of an application is not processed automatically for any purpose.
