Most ongoing GDPR matters are handled by the GDPR extension kindly provided by Veda Consulting, but there seems to be nothing available to deal with a GDPR Subject Access Request (SAR--effectively a dump of all data held on an individual). Perhaps I am missing something, but I don't see any way of doing this easily. Has anyone had to deal with a SAR in CiviCRM and have some suggestions? (We are not facing this immediately, but one wants to be prepared.) Thanks.

  • I would open an issue with feature request on GDPR extension page. – Tapash Aug 27 '20 at 21:30
  • I have dealt with an SAR for a person who was a contact in Civi and was emailed there. The good thing about Civi is that the data is obviously well organised, so that's not a problem. The tricky bit is not so much with systems (although gmail was a problem as you can only forward one email at a time) and Civi certainly was not a problem. The real problem was what to send, how much and what to redact. Advice on that varies! – Andy Clark Sep 1 '20 at 19:16
