Here’s another entry on our set of articles about GDPR-compliant Office 365 backup.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a big, complex law, and, as is only natural, some elements appear to contradict each other. One of those contradictions involves arguably the most notorious aspect of the GDPR: the right to erasure (also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’).

This right – one of eight enshrined in the GDPR – allows individuals to request that organisations remove any personal data pertaining to them, provided that:

* The organisation no longer needs the data for the purpose that it was originally collected;

* The individual withdraws consent;

* The individual objects to the processing and the organisation has no overriding legitimate interest in the data;

* The organisation collected the data unlawfully;

* The data must be erased to comply with a legal obligation; or * The data was processed in relation to the offer of information society services to a child.
