A ‘Data Privacy’ delete will remove the Account/Contact from the Area and it will not make a log in a Backup file. This means we will not be able to restore this Account/Contact should you select that option in error.
Email Campaign Detailed Tracking
It is possible to allow / prevent certain Email Campaigns from relating opens and clicks to individual contacts.
If the option is turned off, all opens and clicks are anonymous. This means that you would not be able to see who has opened an email, or who has clicked an email. This also prevents you from triggering additional events when an email is opened or clicked, as that would be a way to work out which contacts have interacted with an email.
There is an option under Menu, Setup > Database Areas for each area to set this to on or off by default for each new campaign you create. Choose the area you want to change this setting in, then go to the Email Campaign Settings tab.

For those charts that it is relevant, it is possible to click charts elements to show the underlying data on the Account List, and of course, from there the data can be managed using the normal Assign tools.
To apply a filter directly to the Account List for graphs, simply hover over the desired data point, and then click on the tooltip. For tables, simply click on the link located in the desired cell.
