  • Right of rectification (Art 16)
  • Right to object (Art 21)
  • Right to restrict usage (Art 18)
  • Right to erasure (Art 17)

The Request Portal is “born” with all request types active and a set of default text with explanations and guidelines about different requests and about data held and managed by the company. Admins can edit and customise default text. To set up the request types that are displayed on the request portal an Admin can go to Connectid Business Settings > Requests. New features in Connectid Business > Settings. The Requests tab under Settings has been expanded to include:
