#13: Will you delete data about me?

Category: Policy · Last updated: · Permalink

OpenSanctions, by its nature, includes data about many individuals - particularly those mentioned on international sanctions lists, those holding a public office, and those included in published criminal databases. We believe that processing and publishing this data is in the public interest.

If information about you is included in this site and you would like to see it removed, please contact the initial publisher of the information, e.g. the authority publishing the sanctions list, the law enforcement body etc. to discuss the removal of your information.

Once that removal has been processed, please allow for up to one week for the information to disappear from OpenSanctions.
