Article 17 GDPR is about a right to have personal data deleted and not about any ‘right to be forgotten’: its paragraph 1 expressly states that ‘the data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data con- cerning him or her without undue delay and the controller shall have the obligation to erase per- sonal data without undue delay’. The specificity of the wording leaves little doubt as to the exact scope of Article 17 of the GDPR.
