Processing a privacy request requires it to be:

(1) Acknowledged

(2) Completion Deadline Extended (optional)

(3) Consumer ID Verified (required, other than for Do Not Sell requests)

Note you can see the unique request ID for each privacy request in the details screen for the request (accessible by clicking the details icon shown above in the Privacy Requests Tab). For details about how to use your dashboard to follow the four steps to completing a privacy request, see the next help section.
