What is geo-fencing?

Geo-fencing is a feature that can be enabled on a request form significantly reduce existing request workloads.

Geo-fencing works by detecting the location a requester is submitting their request from and then automatically rejecting and received request if that request is received from a jurisdiction not covered by a privacy law.

Requesters submitting requests from a non-covered jurisdiction will immediately receive a rejection email informing them their request has been rejected because it was submitted from a non-covered jurisdiction:
