DataGrail helps Greenhouse Recruiting customers comply with Europe’s (GDPR), California’s (CCPA), Nevada’s (SB 220) and similar privacy regulations. The regulations require on-demand access and deletion of a requester's personal data -- particularly anything that may be associated with an email address -- across all first and third party/external business systems.

Greenhouse Recruiting’s integration with DataGrail allows Greenhouse customers the ability to request and delete of personal data. DataGrail also allows for unification of communication preferences via a Preference Card that integrates with all the leading communication systems. In this article, we will cover how to:
