The controller shall provide the data without undue delay within one month of receipt of the request. If necessary, this period may need to be extended by up to two months, taking into account the complexity and volume of the requests. The controller shall inform the data subject of any such extension and the reasons for the delay within one month of receipt of the request. If the controller does not take action on the basis of the data subject’s request, the controller shall inform the data subject without undue delay, within one month of receipt of the request, of the reasons for it not having taken action and of the option to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority and to exercise other legal remedies.

b) refuse to carry out the requested action.
In such cases, the controller must demonstrate that the request is manifestly unfounded or unreasonable.
