Right to be forgotten

Although the RGPD has enshrined the existence of the right to be forgotten, its exercise is nevertheless highly regulated.

Data subjects have a right to the erasure of their personal data. Consequently, data controllers and their subcontractors must ensure that they exercise this right in accordance with the requirements of the RGPD.

Cabinet FÉRAL assists data subjects in exercising their rights with regard to data controllers and processors, whether in France or abroad. The firm also assists data controllers and subcontractors in the compliance of their processing operations with the requirements relating to the right to be forgotten.

As interlocutors of the CNIL, FÉRAL’s lawyers are regularly called upon to present and support sensitive cases before the CNIL. They also defend their clients’ interests:

– In the event of complaints, inspections and formal notices;
– During on-site or documentary inspections by the CNIL;
– Before the CNIL’s restricted panel, which is empowered to impose sanctions.
