The right for users to obtain a copy of their personal data is a fundamental privacy expectation that should be respected, even as the data is stored in various systems and databases supported by many engineering teams.

In this talk, we describe a reliable system built to enable self-service data access for users across Meta's applications. We focus on utilizing data annotations and schematization to automate data access decisions, ensuring the protection of user data access rights while optimizing the engineering time required to create new products and features.
