Abstract: Scientific and technological progress does not only bring benefits, but also generates dangers for the members of the society. In order to ensure in this new context an efficient protection of the individuals, there was a need for the creation of new juridical instruments, out of which stands out the regulation of the personality rights, as rights inherent to human being. Among the personality rights, there is the right to protection of personal data, its regulation being exceeded by the amplitude of the use of the internet. A project for reform proposed by the European Commission in December 2012 aims to ensure a superior protection in these new condition. Among the novelties brought by this project it`s worth mentioning the widening of the possibilities to interfere offered to the person in question, including by invoking a „right to be forgotten”, being understood as a right of the concerned question to obtain from the operator the deletion of the related personal data. Keywords: personality rights, processing personal data, right to be forgotten.
