We accept a photocopy or a scanned image of one of the following as proof of identity: passport or photo identification such as a driver's license, national identification number card, or birth or adoption certificate. If you have changed your name, please provide the relevant documents evidencing the change. If you do not have any of these forms of identification available, please contact for advice on other acceptable forms of identification. We may request additional information from you to help confirm your identity and your right to access, and to provide you with the personal data we hold about you. We reserve the right to refuse to act on your request if we are unable to identify you.
