Forget Me (GDPR)

Introduced in 8.5.201

This API enables you to support General Data Protection Regulation and enables you to "forget" customers.

What is GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a rule passed by the European Union in 2016, setting new rules for how companies manage and share personal data. It addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The GDPR is applicable for enterprises across the globe that store EU citizens' data.

The regulation applies if the data controller, an organization that collects data from EU residents, or data processor, an organization that processes data on behalf of a data controller like cloud service providers or the data subject (person) is based in the EU. The regulation also applies to organizations based outside the EU if they collect or process personal data of individuals located inside the EU. Genesys is considered a data processor under these terms.


The purpose of this document is to help organizations understand how Genesys Services can be utilized to help them comply with certain regulatory requirements, including EU General Data Protection Regulation. Some of the Genesys Services features described herein may or may not be available based upon an organization’s specific environment and Genesys Services acquired.
