Can anyone help me out on this question?

GDPR - when you delete a record, must it be immutable and non-reversible? -
deleted is deleted
If requested by a court (for example) should you be able to restore the
data you have obfuscated? so, kinda not-quite-deleted

Isnt the whole point of GDPR that it's permanently erased?


* section 47(2) of the Data Protection Act 2018...*


so we currently have 3 options for clients:

1. retain and send me a copy
2. delete and send me a copy
3. delete

am I now to put in a 4th option of

4. delete it but make it reversible if requested by a court ie make it
