Guidelines 5/2019 on the criteria of the Right to be Forgotten in the search engines cases under the GDPR

European Data Protection Board (“EDPB”) published its guidelines 5/2019 on the criteria of the right to be forgotten in search engine cases under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

The Guidelines aim to provide guidance on: (1) the grounds on which individuals can rely for submitting a request for the right to be forgotten in relation to links to web pages containing their personal data; and (2) the exceptions to the right to be forgotten that search engine operators could use to reject such a request.
