How does a deletion request work ?
A deletion request is a request made by an individual to a company or organization to have their personal information removed from their databases.
At againstdata.com, users can send a data subject request directly from their email to the companies that hold their data. Once a deletion request is received, the company has a legal obligation under various privacy regulations, such as GDPR, CCPA, or LGPD, to remove the requested data from their systems within a reasonable time frame.
If the company fails to comply with the request, the user can escalate the issue to the relevant regulatory body or seek legal action. It's important to note that some types of data may be exempt from deletion requests, such as data that is required by law to be retained or data that is necessary for the company to perform a contract with the user.
