      Description

      The support emails for moodle.org and learn.moodle.net often receive messages from people wanting to delete their account but not finding where to request it in the UI. We created the following canned response:

      To request for your data to be deleted from moodle.org, please

      1. Log in and go to your profile https://moodle.org/user/profile.php
      2. Click 'Data requests' in the Privacy and Policies section
      3. Click the New request button
      4. From the dropdown, select 'Delete all of my personal data'
      5. Click the Save changes button.

      Rather than expecting users to go through all of the above steps, it would be good to simply provide them with a link on their profile page.
