Right to be Forgotten

By 20th May 2014 June 27th, 2017 No Comments

Is there a Google or other search engine entry which is a cause of concern for you?

Last week the European Court in a case involving Google confirmed that individuals have a right to require search engines to remove links to web pages containing information about them which is “inadequate”, “irrelevant, “no longer relevant”, or “excessive” from appearing as search results.

The court said that the rights of individuals to have such links removed from search listings must be balanced against the rights of search engines to process and internet users to receive access to that information but that the rights of individuals will, as a general rule, override those other interests.
