We have added a new information page, information on the internet, online and through search engines like Google, which brings together our information, advice and other useful resources relating to information that may be available about you on the internet through search engines such as Google.
Following the ‘right to be forgotten’ ruling in May 2014, which enables individuals to request the removal of information from Google search results, our helpline has received many enquiries from people seeking assistance in making applications to Google. We’ve produced a new search engine removal request which you can use as a guide when making your case, and then copy/paste into the online forms that the different search engines have.
