Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Did you know in advance the meeting was being recorded?
Thank you. Yes this would be dealt with under the GDPR, specifically Article 17:
This deals with the right to erasure. Specifically the following will apply to you:
“The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:
the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed”
Does this answer your query?
They could argue that you have not yet completed the task for which the recording was made so until that is done they can retain it in the event there is a dispute over the contents of the minutes. Does this clarify things a bit more for you?
Why are you not wiling to confirm the minutes’ accuracy?
Ok then you can ask them to delete it as the case is closed so there is no further need for these recordings to be kept by them. Does this clarify things a bit more for you?
All the best
