From start to the date of publication this straightforward Subject Access Request has taken 129 days, over four times the 30 days provided for in the GDPR. It is not resolved, nor is the complaint process resolved.
On the data subject’s part it has involved multiple interactions with the Data Protection Commissioner.
Despite all of this effort the access request has still not been completed and the personal data has not been released.
