Article 12 (3) general data protection

I would like to inquire the reasons why a time extension is required so that I can have access to my information for 3 months. I requested to view my records as a matter of urgency and understood this would take a month. Now it will take until 17th May 2020. Thank you for your help.

You should not wait for three months unless the data controller explained the reasons for such a time frame.

In fact, the GDPR in the preamble at paragraph 59 states that: "The controller should be obliged to respond to requests from the data subject without undue delay and at the latest within one month and to give reasons where the controller does not intend to comply with any such requests."

The regulation requires that the rights of access and/or erasure must be guaranteed "without undue delay", which means as soon as possible and at the least within one month.
