Erase Your Personal Data

Although Pressbooks is designed to only collect very minimal data about users, you may want to instruct Pressbooks to erase your personal data. To do this:

  1. Visit the user dashboard and click ‘Tools‘ -> ‘Erase Personal Data
  2. Enter your username or email address
  3. Check the ‘Confirmation email’ box if you’d like to send a confirmation email before your personal data is erased
  4. Click ‘Send Request
  5. If you elected to send a confirmation email, follow the instructions in that email to confirm your request.

Site administrators will also see a table showing the status of all pending and completed data deletion requests for a given book. You can complete pending requests, force erase personal data, or remove requests from this table, as desired.
