Privacy Requests Can Come From Practically Anywhere

Consumers worldwide want control over their data even if they’re not protected by privacy law; and businesses are honoring their requests.

46% of DSRs arrived from IP addresses located outside the US, Canada, China, Brazile the UK, or the EU (regions with privacy laws). As such, people making these requests might not be covered by strong privacy laws. Around 12.5% of US-based DSRs came from states with laws already on the books (CA, CO, & CT), yet 34% are coming from states without privacy protections, suggesting people from across the US are submitting requests regardless of their level of legal protection. Consumers want more control over their data even if they don’t have legally-protected privacy rights.

Note: As a United States-based company with a larger regional footprint in the US, our data skews toward privacy requests coming from the US and may not be an accurate reflection of total global requests. Many DataGrail customers apply GDPR-grade DSR processes across the board, which helps to ensure good customer relations and improves the efficiency of their privacy programs.
