(EN) The Council of Europe recommended, in 1973, that “inaccurate information” should be corrected in the context of data compiled in electronic data banks (Resolution on the Protection of the Privacy of Individuals vis-a-vis Electronic Data Banks in the Private Sector). So, it is not surprising that the European Union 2016 General Data Protection Regulation provides for a “right to rectification”. The surprise comes from the absence of guidance regarding the rights and responsibilities related to the exercise of that right.

(65) Los interesados deben tener derecho a que se rectifiquen los datos personales que le conciernen y un «derecho al olvido» si la retención de tales datos infringe el presente Reglamento o el Derecho de la Unión o de los Estados miembros aplicable al responsable del tratamiento. En particular, los interesados deben tener derecho a que sus datos personales se supriman y dejen de tratarse si ya no son necesarios para los fines para los que fueron recogidos o tratados de otro modo, si los interesados han retirado su consentimiento para el tratamiento o se oponen al tratamiento de datos personales que les conciernen, o si el tratamiento de sus datos personales incumple de otro modo el presente Reglamento. Este derecho es pertinente en particular si el interesado dio su consentimiento siendo niño y no se es plenamente consciente de los riesgos que implica el tratamiento, y más tarde quiere suprimir tales datos personales, especialmente en internet. El interesado debe poder ejercer este derecho aunque ya no sea un niño. Sin embargo, la retención ulterior de los datos personales debe ser lícita cuando sea necesaria para el ejercicio de la libertad de expresión e información, para el cumplimiento de una obligación legal, para el cumplimiento de una misión realizada en interés público o en el ejercicio de poderes públicos conferidos al responsable del tratamiento, por razones de interés público en el ámbito de la salud pública, con fines de archivo en interés público, fines de investigación científica o histórica o fines estadísticos, o para la formulación, el ejercicio o la defensa de reclamaciones.

(65) A data subject should have the right to have personal data concerning him or her rectified and a ‘right to be forgotten’ where the retention of such data infringes this Regulation or Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject. In particular, a data subject should have the right to have his or her personal data erased and no longer processed where the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are collected or otherwise processed, where a data subject has withdrawn his or her consent or objects to the processing of personal data concerning him or her, or where the processing of his or her personal data does not otherwise comply with this Regulation. That right is relevant in particular where the data subject has given his or her consent as a child and is not fully aware of the risks involved by the processing, and later wants to remove such personal data, especially on the internet. The data subject should be able to exercise that right notwithstanding the fact that he or she is no longer a child. However, the further retention of the personal data should be lawful where it is necessary, for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller, on the grounds of public interest in the area of public health, for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
