Configuring the data registry
One of the information types that users can request under the GDPR is a list of all data processing and the reasoning behind it, including its retention period. The data registry contains that information, represented in categories and purposes.
You will find the data registry in Site administration | Users | Privacy and policies | Data registry, which displays the following explanation:
The data registry enables categories (types of data) and purposes (the reasons for processing data) to be set for all content on the site – from users and courses down to activities and blocks. For each purpose, a retention period may be set. When a retention period has expired, the data is flagged and listed for deletion, awaiting admin confirmation.
This note perfectly sums up the objective of the data...
