How to check a data subject access request's verification status

Steps to take to see if a data subject request, or a DSR, has been verified by the user

When a user submits a data subject request, or a DSR, on your website, they will be asked to verify their identity through a verification email process. Once a request has been verified, your team will receive an email notification that you have a new request. You will then be able to edit their request in the Clym admin. This process helps to eliminate spam and save your team time responding to legitimate and confirmed requests.

Checking the verification status of your DSRs is an easy 3-step process:



1. Sign in to 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.
