The new European data protection regulation will come into effect on May 25, 2018. Which states that it is the right of the user to request companies to download their personal data.
Not all companies use the same method, each company has their own method of request to download data from their website. For some companies, you have to send email to request download of your personal data.
If you want you can do a Google search to find out more about how each company allows you to download personal data, but it takes time.
To save your valuable time, there is a service called My Data Request, which helps you know the ways to download or request data from more than 100 services.
When you visit My Data Request website you will see a button named Get Started. Click on it to see a page full of company logos, just click on a company logo from which you wish to download data. A small popup window will appear explaining the ways to download personal data with a direct link to the download page.
Hope now you know how to download your personal data from different online services. Now you don’t have to worry when you need to download your personal data from an online website which you have used in the past.
