INTRODUCTION

D_Element

DSAR is a request addressed by an individual to the organization. It gives the right to access personal data that the organization is processing about them. Additionally, it allows individuals to exercise that right within a reasonable timeline.

The individual has the right to receive a copy of the data and other information to make sure all their privacy rights are respected. 

It's essential for agency owners to educate themselves about the changes brought by GDPR and how they will affect them. 

Who Can Submit a DSAR? 
Customers or users are not the only people who have the right to submit a DSAR. Employees, contractors, sales prospects, and job candidates can also submit one.

World of data privacy is changing as consumers become more aware of how their data is used. The days of using this data freely for marketers without consequences are behind us. Today, new laws exist to give consumers more control over how their personal information is stored and used. 

Element

For example, in 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into existence to help residents of the EU - along with those outside of it who do business within EU countries - regain control of their data. The California Consumer Privacy Act, a new privacy law for California residents, came shortly after on January 1, 2020. This data protection law gives California consumers access to their data. 

This solution requires agencies to consider the nature of customer inquiries, sensitivity, and volume when processing requests. 

6 Steps to DSAR

1. Verify the Subject's Identity  

Audit the DSAR requests to find what the requester wants to know. In most cases, subjects want to see what data you have. But they may invoke other data privacy rights at the same time.

Final Words

CONCLUSION

Element

Right to be Forgotten (RTBF) allows consumers to ask that the organization remove their personal information from their databases. To comply with GDPR, organizations must be able to sort through their databases and find personal data and the consumer's contact information. 

Organizations must also be able to verify whether they have received a request to delete a record and respond to that request. 

 

Our proprietary DSAR Management app is built within our Consent Management Platform (CMP). Our DSAR Management makes it easy to find forms, create workflows, and manage all incoming and outgoing messages about Data Subject Access Requests.
