**** You do not need to sign the request for information on the processing of personal data or in case you want to exercise Your right to withdraw the consent to receive the Inspectorate’s newsletters.

How can you confirm your identity during the submission of the request?

Identification methods:
1.    When submitting the request at the Inspectorate: by submitting the identification document to the employee of the Inspectorate;
2.    When delivering the request via post or courier: by adding the copy of the identification document*** ***;
3.    When submitting the request via E-mail: the request must be electronically signed (for more information see the sub-chapter “Can you submit the request via E-mail?”).

*** *** If the Inspectorate does not process your personal data contained in the personal document, you must submit other kind of information, from which you may be unambiguously identified, which the Inspectorate is able to inspect.

Can you submit the request via E-mail?

You can, however, the requests submitted this way must be signed by a qualified e-signature or be compiled through electronic means allowing to ensure the integrity and indispensability of the text (except if you want to withdraw your consent to receive the Inspectorate’s newsletters. For more information see the sub-chapter “How can you address us?”). The signing of the request with a qualified e-signature allows the Inspectorate to properly identify you and ensure that the information you request or information on the actions (refusal to act) in relation to your request is only to the person to whom it is addressed, i.e. to you.

If you are a citizen of a foreign state and you submit the request via e-mail and do not have any objective capabilities to confirm your identity in accordance to the procedure indicated above, and, due to objective reasons, you cannot submit the request by at the premises of the Inspectorate or to send the request via post or courier, then, by submitting the request via e-mail, you must confirm your identity by adding the copy of your identification document or, if the Inspectorate does not process your personal data contained in the identification document, other kind of information, from which you can be unambiguously identified and which can be verified by the Inspectorate, shall be submitted.

The scanned copies of signed requests or request submitted via e-mail and not signed by qualified e-signature do not comply with the requirements laid down in legal acts. Submission of such request may be an obstacle to the acceptance of your request, thus, if you do not have a qualified e-signature, you submit the request in person or via post.

Within which time the Inspectorate will answer you?

Your requests for the exercise of your rights under the GDPR shall be answered within one month. Depending on the complexity and number of the requests, this period may be extended by 2 months.

For more information on the exercise of the rights of data subjects, please refer to the Rules on the Implementation of the Rights of the Data Subject in the Inspectorate (in Lithuanian only).
