In order to ensure that the person submitting the request is authorised to do so, the Administrator may ask for additional information confirming the identity of the submitter.
The Data Controller is obliged to provide the relevant information in writing. The provisions of GDPR indicate to what extent each of these rights may be exercised. This will depend in particular on the legal basis and purpose of the processing of personal data by the Administrator.
