Can the data request be subject to a payment or must it be provided free of charge?

Information about the processing of your personal data, as well as the first copy of your data, must be provided free of charge. For further copies the company or organisation may charge a reasonable fee based on their administrative costs (e.g. the cost of mailing the copy to you). However, the company or organisation is not allowed to make a profit out of it. If you feel that the fee is too high, you can contact your national Data Protection Authority.
