“Subject: Data removal request

Dear All,

I hereby submit a request for implementation of the following rights under Section 1798.105 of CCPA, Articles 7(3), 17 and 21 of GDPR and other applicable privacy legislation which grant individuals certain rights in relation to the protection of their personal data (information):

1) To obtain erasure (deletion) of personal data (information) without undue delay;

2) To withdraw any consent given to the processing of personal data (information);

3) To object to the processing of personal data (information) concerning the below individual, including but not limited to profiling and direct marketing.

The information necessary to confirm the identity of the individual on behalf of which this request is submitted:

Name: [Name]

Address: [Address]

E-mail address: [Email]

Please confirm your compliance with the request without undue delay and in any event within 45 (forty-five) days of receipt of this request.

Thank you.”

“Please note that I have already provided all the information necessary to identify the principal to identify myself. Therefore, I am not obliged to provide any further information.

Your request to initiate manual research on users’ side is excessive and requires disproportionate effort”

“In response to your request to fill in some kind of form, please note that I do not have such an obligation.

If there is any legal obligation to do that, please send me a link to a relevant legal act.

On the other hand, you have an obligation to erase my personal information/data without further delay. Therefore, I repeatedly hereby request to erase all my personal information/data. You can treat this letter as withdrawal of my consent on which the processing is based.

Please confirm by email that my personal information/data has been completely erased.”

“Please note that I have already provided all the information necessary to identify me.

Therefore, I am not obliged to provide any further information and find your requirements excessive. Therefore, your request to initiate manual research is disproportionate to my side.

As well as, even if I could do that, there is no guarantee that your system has avoided errors, typos or other mistakes in association with my data.”
