    Ha, I love that bit. I do love it when the law forces unreasonable people to do what is socially expected of them, but I also wonder if it really is a good thing to have it enforced by legislation.

    "Actually, the reasonable thing - the human thing to do - is to go and take them down."

    From the article:

    From the article:

    The case went to court after the woman refused to delete photographs of her grandchildren which she had posted on social media.

    The mother of the children had asked several times for the pictures to be deleted.

    The GDPR does not apply to the "purely personal" or "household" processing of data.

    However, that exemption did not apply because posting photographs on social media made them available to a wider audience, the ruling said.
