The Right to be Forgotten – New Guidelines

Burnetts' Information Law solicitor Natalie Ruane discusses new guildelines on the right to be forgotten.

The Article 29 Data Protection Working Party which is an independent European advisory body on data protection and privacy has now given definitive guidance on how regulators should deal with the “right to be forgotten” judgment issued under the Google Spain case.  The guidelines are fairly lengthy and can be accessed (along with a more user friendly executive summary) at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/article-29/documentation/opinion-recommendation/files/2014/wp225_en.pdf
