For any reason, candidates can delete themselves from the Bryq database. They can do this by reaching out to Bryq and requesting the link to delete their account.

Example of Bryq's response:

Hi Peter,

If you wish to remove ALL your information from our system immediately, please follow the following steps:

  • Type your email and you will receive a Login link

  • Tap on your Profile menu

  • Confirm that you want to have your data removed by clicking on "Delete my account"

Note that this will expunge all your data and no record will remain. There will be no notification to your prospective employer, and we will have no record remaining.
If you have not deleted your data already, we will proceed with removing your data from our systems within 48 hours of this message.

The Bryq Team

Account Admins can add the people who should receive notifications when a candidate deletes their data. If the field is empty, the data notification process follows specific rules.

Account deletions notify the following people:

  • Any email addresses under the company's deletion emails field or, when none are found, per company

  • Account admin - always

  • HR admin - who is in the assessment's team

  • Job creator - always

Example of notification email:


Example Name (email) has deleted their data from Bryq’s database on October 28, 2021, at 08:05 AM, and we hereby request that you remove their Bryq data from your systems as well.

Under Bryq’s Privacy Policy, candidates have the right to delete their data. We no longer have any record of Peter Smith.

For any further questions you may have, please reach out to

Thank you!

The Bryq Team

Depending on your jurisdiction, you may have to remove the candidate's data from your own systems as well.

We hope this helps you!
