I understood an entry into the DHT can be marked as deleted, but the data is not removed, as it is immutable.
If an actor is capable of doing this on its own data, it should be able to do this everywhere such data is stored, i guess Holochain has covered this, but i like to be sure of that.
Secondly, the data that is marked as deleted should not be readable anymore by no one, or the claim of deletion cant be made. I am totally not sure if Holochain can guarantee this, so i like to get an answer from core devs on this.
If deleted data somehow stil can be made readable, i am afraid European privacy lawyers will never advice using Holochain.
I am talking here about any kind of public data that a user has published on any kind of public app. It is a feature of HOlochain to link a persons data with its agents’ identity, so this means - in GDPR law terms - that any kind of the linked data is also considered as personal data and the same rules apply.
So even if an Individual thinks he did not publish anything personal, legally this still becomes personal data.
So this deleting is a big thing.
