Product Update: Show used personal data to your subscribers (GDPR)

It might happen that your subscribers ask you to show what data you store about them. As a business owner and marketer it is your responsibility to fulfill this request. Automizy’s responsibility is to provide this option.

Therefore,  you can export stored data about a subscriber from the profile page to a text file in machine-readable format.

Why is this feature important?

As we wrote in this article about GDPR, one of the most important right of your subscribers is “portability and access”.

It simply means that your subscribers can ask you to send them the data you store in Automizy about them.

Also it’s important that the data you provide is readable by machines and easily reachable when you send it to your subscribers.

How to provide personal data to your subscribers?

  1. Go to Contacts/Lists and click on the View button on the list where your contact isChoose a list
  2. Search for the subscriber you wish to export and click the “VIEW” buttonView subscriber
  3. Click the “EXPORT” button on the profile page and wait for the file to be downloadedExport personal data of a subscriber
  4. Send the downloaded file to your subscriber.

If you want to read it, open it with for example NotePade or NotePad++ on your computer, copy&paste the text for example to this free service.

It generates an easily readable format for humans from the exported data.

Sharing is caring.
