Right to Erasure
- The GDPR introduces a right for individuals to have personal data erased.
- The right to erasure is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’.
- Individuals can make a request for erasure verbally or in writing.
- You have one month to respond to a request.
- The right is not absolute and only applies in certain circumstances.
- This right is not the only way in which the GDPR places an obligation on you to consider whether to delete personal data.
