This book is for legal practitioners, privacy professionals, data protection officers, organisations that handle personal data and anyone interested in the law that governs the control of personal information, in particular the aspect of erasure.

The different components that make up the right to be forgotten are explained and key questions answered, such as the legal basis for making erasure requests, and the possible exemptions from complying. The judgment that established the right to be forgotten is examined in detail, as well as some important cases that have followed.
