This isn’t something we (the Discourse community) can answer. You’ll want to consult with a legal expert in your locality to determine if this is required.

We’re happy to discuss the technical side of handling GDPR data erasure requests. We can also discuss the community management side of it. We cannot provide answers to the legal side. For that, a lawyer, specifically your lawyer, is needed. One that knows both GDPR and the specifics of your circumstances. Any information provided here is not, and must not be considered legal advice.
