Introduction


Welcome to Dataships! The following instructions will allow you to set up your company’s data access gateway.

The widget and control panel work together to automate the facilitation of your data subjects’ Rights under GDPR and CCPA.

The control panel is used by the company to bring all your sources of data together in one place. This is accessible only to those within your company.

Your data subjects can then access their individual personal data through the widget which sits on the company’s website. They are only able to see their individual data that the company holds on them.
