Creating a DSR


A Data Subject Request (DSR) is a part of modern privacy laws. A DSR is a user’s request to access, modify or delete the personal data that the organization holds on them. Skypoint AI aligns with modern privacy regulations such as California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and provides organizations with a centralized tool to manage and automate these incoming requests.

Skypoint AI-powered automated DSRs take care of requests in minutes and keep customers informed of their status to help you save time, eliminate errors, and ensure compliance. Types of requests that the user can make on the Skypoint AI platform are as follows:

  • Access or download data
  • Data deletion
  • Do not sell data
  • Consent of the user for different data processing activities
  • Update inaccuracies

The end user can create a DSR from the Privacy Center website. On your Privacy Center page, the customer can request to download their data, delete their data, and perform other DSR activities.

Follow the below steps to create a DSR:

Review a DSR

Once a DSR is created, it displays under the For review tab. If the DSR is failed or is partially completed, an email will be sent to the customer's email with detailed information.

To resend email verification, do the following under the Action column:

  • Click on the horizontal ellipsis of the DSR and select Resend Email Verification.
  • Click Details to view the details of the DSR.

In case the email is not verified within 24 hours, an auto-rejection email will be sent to the customers. If the email is not verified after resending the email verification request to the customer, cancel the DSR request. The cancelation reason is displayed in the Rejected/Canceled tab.


Skypoint AI provides default templates, these email templates contain some pre-build rules for some tables with their subject and they will be triggered automatically when a request occurs. For more information, refer to the Email Template section.

Process and complete a DSR

Once an email is verified, you can process the request.

To process a DSR, do the following:

  • Select the DSR and click Process.

The customer receives a notification that the system is processing their DSR. The Processing tab displays all the DSRs that are currently being processed.

Once the request is processed, you can complete the request.

To complete a DSR, do the following:

  • Select a DSR and click Complete.
  • If you want to reject a DSR, click Reject.

It will reflect in the Complete tab. The Complete tab shows all the DSRs that have been processed and the request is completed. Also, the customer will receive a mail notification that the DSR is processed successfully.


Once the data subject request is logged in the "For Review" queue, we have set the time to complete the request. It is important to note that the timeline differs across jurisdictions. For example, under the CCPA, a business has 45 days to fulfill a request, while under GPDR, a business has 30 days.

Rejected/Cancelled tab shows all the DSRs which are Cancelled or Rejected. You can see the reason for cancellation or rejection under the Reason column.

If you want to reprocess a DSR, click the horizontal ellipsis under the Action column and select Reprocess.

Failed/Partially completed tab shows all the DSRs that are failed or partially completed. You can view the reason for failure/partially completed DSR under Action > Detail and rectify it if needed.

  • Failed DSR: Validation failed, and data is not updated in any of the connectors.
  • Partially completed DSR: Data is updated in one or more connectors, but not all.

To bulk process DSR

You can accept/reject multiple DSRs at a time through the checkbox. It saves a lot of manual effort and avoids piling up a lot of requests on the DSR page. You can bulk process or delete DSRs with the Email verified marked as Yes. Follow the below steps to bulk-process of multiple DSRs:

  1. Check the Request id that you want to process or reject.
  2. Click Process or Reject according to your requirement.
