EU GDPR / Posts on discussion forum
I just want to ask a brief question about GDPR. In our company, we organise a discussion forum. Are we obliged, under GDPR, to delete posts from that forum, if the author requires us to do so? Or is it ok if we just anonymise the post?Thanks a lot

Usually, the discussion forum is ruled by the terms of service of the forum and so the legal basis for data processing is the contract between the company and the user.
In case the user demands to delete its data, the data controller (the company) can either decide to anonymize or delete data.
Here you can find some information about the legal basis:
