EU: EDPB releases finalised guidelines on right to be forgotten

The European Data protection Board ('EDPB') announced on Twitter, on 10 July 2020, that it had released the final version of its Guidelines 5/2019 on the Criteria of the Right to be Forgotten in Search Engines Cases under the GDPR ('the Guidelines'), following the public consultation on the same. In particular, the Guidelines address, among other things, six grounds of the right to request delisting under the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR'), as well as the exceptions to the same right under Article 17(3) of the GDPR.
