They go down.

A few years ago Peter Pramberger, a keyserver operator in Austria, had a
request from someone who had uploaded a certificate but was now
asserting their right under EU data privacy directives to have their
personal information removed.  After consulting with legal counsel,
Peter realized the only step he could take would be to shut down his
keyserver.  Otherwise, he'd be hit with large per-day fines for failure
to comply with the user's demand.
