Google Surrenders Against EC As Removing Offensive Links Hitting Personal Possible Now

google-chroombooksWASHINGTON – After European Commission intervention, Google has finally on its knee to give users the right to remove ‘any link’ hitting them personally.

The firm has even uploaded an online form asking the search giant to remove links to posts and data about you.

” The new form is in response to a European Commission ruling earlier this month that people must have the “right to be forgotten” online,” CNET has reported.

“The EC ruled that you can ask for Google to stop linking to anything that’s “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant, or excessive in relation to the purposes for which they were processed.”

The ruling, though passed at European land, is even applied on US firms like Facebook and Google.

As you attempt to remove any such link, Google says ” it will assess each individual request and attempt to balance the privacy rights of the individual with the public’s right to know and distribute information.”

An expert committee will judge, whether the link should remain or removed.
