Submission + - People have "right to be forgotten" online -- EU (pcpro.co.uk)

nk497 writes: The European Commission wants to strengthen data protection rules to give more power to consumers – including the right to be forgotten online. Legislation it's looking to push through next year will let consumers know when and how their data is being used, and force companies to delete it when asked. “People should be able to give their informed consent to the processing of their personal data,” the commission said in a statement. “They should have the 'right to be forgotten' when their data is no longer needed or they want their data to be deleted.”
