What to do if someone invokes their right to object to the processing of their personal
We will handle these requests the same as we would for a request for erasure. As a processor, we will not delete a member's data without the consent of our customer (controller). Customers must submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org with their customer’s email so we can look up the user in our system and delete all personal data.
As a customer, you can also email email@example.com directly and request we delete your personal data and we will process your request.
