    As it says on the tin. If it is requested that your data be deleted under GDRP does it have to do so or can they refuse?

    i think they will delete it but it has to be after they hold onto it for 5 years or something in case you decide to come back and dispute charges etc to your bank, so yes they will delete it but 5 years after you request it imo, could be wrong though

    No, they do not have to comply if there is a legitimate business reason to hold on to your data.

    For example, you cannot ring the Revenue Commissioners and tell them to remove you from their systems!
