Right to be forgotten

The UK government has announced plans to strengthen UK data protection law, giving citizens more control over their personal information – including what they share on social media. Under the new Data Protection Bill , individuals will have the “right to be forgotten”, meaning they will be able to make websites like Facebook delete information – including content published in their childhood.

Matt Hancock, Minister of State for Digital, said the measures are designed to “give consumers the confidence that their data is protected and those who misuse it will be held to account”.If passed, the Data Protection Bill will bring British law into line with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will become enforceable from May 2018.Here’s what the new Data Protection Bill and “right to be forgotten” could mean for you.
