Data rights requests will only grow

As consumer interest grows and new legislation passes, the number of data rights requests will only grow. Services have already been built that enable consumers to exercise their rights at scale, sending hundreds of requests.

We believe that the use of authorized agents and automated tools will become the main source of data rights requests in the near future. The tidal wave is on the horizon. That's why the Data Rights Protocol focuses on defining a standard for sending and processing requests from third parties and authorized agents.

A standard will benefit your business

An industry standard helps businesses stay in compliance with regulations like the CCPA while providing a faster, cheaper, and better method of processing these requests. Relieve some of the burden of verifying requests and fighting fraud by joining a consortium of trusted businesses and authorized agents,

Join the Covered Business Roundtable

We have set up a Covered Business Group your company can join to stay abreast of the DRP, have influence on future development of the DRP, and be the first to be able to test and deploy DRP as a solution to the challenge of processing Authorized Agent requests.
