EDPB publishes search engine guidance on the right to be... sorry, I forgot.

This week, the European Data Protection Board published draft guidelines for consultation on search engines and exercising the right to be forgotten/right to erasure under Article 17 GDPR.  This follows the ECJ's decisionthat Google doesn't have to delist search results outside of Europe or on its non-EU websites (provided they geoblock within Europe) when a data subject has validly exercised their right to be forgotten.
