Right to be Forgotten

General Data Protection Regulation




The Court of Justice of the European Union considers that the processing of data by search engines is subject to EU data protection rules and that people are entitled to request, under certain conditions, that links to their personal data are not included in the results of a search by your internet name.


The right to be forgotten or "eliminated" in GDPR terminology, is the manifestation of the traditional cancellation and opposition rights applied to Internet search engines.


PARTEAM & OEMKIOSKS, the leading provider of multimedia kiosks and digital billboards, takes responsibility for the new GDPR guidelines. In line with all the actions of PARTTEAM & OEMKIOSKS in the market, we approach the area of data protection and more specifically the needs of our clients, from different sectors of activity.


In addition to the rights already established by the holders of personal data (such as the rights of information , access and opposition), the GDPR comes to create new rights, because of the evolution of search engines and social networks: the right to be forgotten.


Indeed, the right to forgotten allows individuals to request data controllers to eliminate all personal data without undue delay in certain situations. Third parties with whom you share data of individuals are also covered by these rules.


In this way, we can say that the right to be forgotten has, in fact, its exceptions. According to Article 17 (number 3), this is not feasible when we are faced with an obligation to exercise freedom of expression and information; when it is required to comply with a legal obligation when dealing with data, to perform functions of public interest or to exercise the public authority of the controller; for reasons of public interest in the field of public health; for the purpose of archival of public interest, for the purpose of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes; for the declaration, exercise or defense of a right in a judicial process.



About the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)


The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is considered as a significant part of European data protection legislation, to be introduced into the European Union (EU) in 20 years and will replace the European Data Protection Directive 1995.


The GDPR regulates the processing of personal data about individuals in the European Union, including their collection, storage, transfer or use. The concept of "personal data" in the GDPR is very broad and covers any information related to an identified or identifiable individual (also called a "data subject").


As such, this new regulation gives individuals more rights and control over their data by regulating how companies should handle and store the personal data they collect. The GDPR also increases compliance betting by increasing enforcement and imposing larger fines if the provisions of the GDPR are violated.


GDPR enhances the privacy rights of EU individuals and places significantly improved obligations on organizations that manipulate data.
