> Yes, the ICO insist you delete it as soon as it is no longer required
But requirements imposed by other statues and regulations also apply.
Eg. just because you as a vendor to remove all your personal information (you've decided to never do business with them again), does not mean all your data will be deleted. For a start accounting information (your address on invoices etc) are required to be retained for a certain period.
Consent is not the only valid reason for processing personal data under GDPR.
