Whenever users send your company a Data Subject Request through our DSR form, they'll be given the option to select from various Data Request Types. To edit the request types that will be available to your users, simply go to your dashboard and click on Privacy Ops > Request Form.

These types of request were built around the data rights outlined by the GDPR and CCPA.

The Data Request Types illow offers are:

  1. Info request: the data subject has the right to ask a data controller what kind of data they process and why the data controller needs it.
  2. Access data: The right to access allows the data subject to access the personal data belonging to them that you process.
  3. Data deletion: Article 17 of the GDPR describes the user right to erasure, which is better known as the right to be forgotten.
  4. Data portability: The right to data portability outlined in Article 20 of the GDPR refers to the data subject's right to receive the personal data held by the data controller in a commonly used format and send the data to another controller or use it for their personal purposes (under certain circumstances).
  5. Update data: Article 16 of the GDPR provides European data subjects with the right to change or modify the data they provide you when they believe the data is inaccurate or out-of-date.
  6. Restrict processing: Article 18 of the GDPR outlines the data subject's right to request the restriction of processing under certain conditions.
  7. Review automated decisions: this data request type is based on the following right establised by the GDPR: "The data subject shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly affects him or her"
  8. Opt-out of the sale of my data : The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides consumers with the right to opt out and stop businesses from selling their personal information.
  9. File a complaint: any general complaints related to data processing that do not belong to any of the previous categories should be sent through this request type.
