Data erasure rights within GDPR

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides customers with the “right to be forgotten”, which means that Sonarworks product users can request the erasure of certain data Sonarworks may hold. It should be noted that in certain circumstances in accordance with article 17(3) of the GDPR, we may not be able to erase all the information you have requested.

For more information on GDPR and the "Right to be forgotten", we recommend visiting this article on the official EU GDPR site:
