Process after Approving Request

After approval, a privacy request is processed using the configured Privacy Request Policy which will automatically retrieve or delete user data based on the configuration you have already implemented.

When the request is complete, the subject will be notified by confirmation email. When this is an access request, the email will include a download link to retrieve a copy of their personal data.

Next, we'll look at evaluating and debugging issues that may occur with privacy requests.
