Hi, sorry if this has already been considered but I have a query about the right of erasure under the GDPR.
From what I can see from Article 17(3)(b) of the GDPR, the right will not apply to where the personal data is being processed as it is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority (which for a Council would be any of its statutory functions). Consequently, does this mean that a data subject cannot exercise the right of erasure even where the personal data is n longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed (Art 17(1)(a)) and/or the data subject objects to the processing (Art 17(1)(c)) and/or the personal data have been unlawfully processed (Art. 17(1)(d) or there is a legal requirement for it to be erased (Art 17(1)(e)?
I am sure that there is a simple solution that I am overlooking. Have anyone had a look at this issue?
