Manage Your Account
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:
- Visit the user dashboard and click ‘Tools‘ -> ‘Erase Personal Data‘
- Enter your username or email address
- Check the ‘Confirmation email’ box if you’d like to send a confirmation email before your personal data is erased
- Click ‘Send Request‘
- 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.
