This cartoon is about data subject access requests (DSARs) — sometimes called “subject access requests” (SARs). The GDPR Article 15 provides for DSARs. The new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides individuals with a right to learn about the personal data collected and shared about them over the past 12 months.
For more background about DSARs, see this great guide to DSARs by WireWheel.
