EDPB decisions on observance of GDPR by obliged entities under AML

The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) in 2019 has published two decisions on the application of GDPR in relation to anti money laundering (AML). Both decisions have the lawfulness of processing and the right to erasure as subjects.

In the decision of September 2019 the UK privacy authority confirms that certain customer information has to be retained pursuant to UK anti money laundering for five years after the end of the business relationship.

The decision of December 2019 concerns a case in which the complainant requested to have his personal data erased, but his request was rejected by the controller (an obliged entity under AML-law). In this case the controller did not properly inform the complainant of his right to complain to the relevant supervisory authority and his right to seek a judicial review. Providing a link to the privacy policy containing the contact details of the relevant supervisory authority was not considered to be enough. The controller was asked to improve the information given to all data subjects.
