Britons could obtain more control over what happens to personal information under proposals outlined by the government.
Citizens will be able to ask for personal data, or information posted when they were children, to be deleted.
The proposals are part of an overhaul of UK data protection laws drafted under Digital Minister, Matt Hancock.
