In this tutorial, you'll learn how your users can submit privacy requests. You'll cover the process for a subject to submit their request on the privacy center, verify their identity, and then receive the request.


For this tutorial, you'll need:

  • A Fides Cloud or Fides Enterprise account
  • The role of either Owner, View & Approver or Approver to manage privacy requests.
  • At least one system integration configured for privacy requests. Read how to configure an integration.
  • A privacy center to receive and process privacy requests. Read how to configure a privacy center.
