ECJ: rules limitations on the removal of personal data regarding dissolved companies

By in

The European Court of Justice has ruled a limitation on the right to remove personal data from company records held in official registers. Individuals’ right to be forgotten has become increasing popular as growing amounts of personal data are held by government agencies.

The court held that company registers needed to be public to ensure legal certainty and to protect the interests of third parties, this is because Company registers only contain a limited amount of personal information.
