How to add a new data subject request type to your Clym widget

Steps to take to add a new DSR request type to be available in your Clym widget for users to submit DSRs

By default, your Clym widget is pre-configured to offer specific data subject request types to your users, based on the regulation that protects them. For example, a website visitor from California will see the option to submit a Do not sell or share my personal information request.

Depending on the options you want to make available to your users, you may wish to add a new data subject request, or DSR, type to your Clym widget. Clym lets you do this on the geographical level, offering you the option to customize options for your users around the globe.

Adding a new DSR request type is an easy 3-step process:



1. Sign into your Clym Portal

You should have received a magic link in your initial onboarding email. Please click Sign in from the email to get started. Alternatively, navigate to Clym's home page and click on Sign in in the upper right-hand corner.
