The European Union present today a new law safeguarding the Internet users’s ‘right to be forgotten’.
If it is approved, this law will enable users to request the cancellation of personal information from all online Websites, from social networks to any other company’s site.
The proposal is part of a broad review of the European Commission’s 1995 Directive on data protection.
According to the new legal provision, people will be able to impose on companies their right to cancel their personal data from data-banks unless the latter hold a “legitimate” right to continue conserving them.
