Correct.

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.
