We Asked 600 Data Brokers to Delete our Personal Data – Dark Patterns in Data Deletion Requests

What we learned about data privacy, dark patterns in UX, and ethics when we sent 600 data brokers GDPR data deletion requests.

With the development of privacy regulations across the globe, we have more tools than ever to exercise our digital rights, so what would happen if we were to send data deletion requests to 600 Data Brokers? How many would honor our request? How easy would it be?

We show how we can make privacy regulations more accessible to people using human-centered design and more generally, the role that non-governmental organizations play in advancing digital human rights.
