Right to be forgotten
Right to be forgotten search results removal
The right to be forgotten has given opportunities to people who are desperate for a second chance in life. Whilst on the face of it, de-listing webpages from Google searches appears to be a simple task such as filling out a short form, the reality is, that in order to enhance a person's chances of achieving success, such as delisting from search results, seeking professional advice is more likely to achieve those results.
Among the most common reasons for an unsuccessful right to be forgotten request, are those which are listed in the pages below.
- An incomplete application to the search engine provider, which makes it difficult for the search engine to provide an accurate assessment of the request.
- A request made on the basis of the wrong law, most commonly, defamation instead of privacy or data protection laws.
- A right to be forgotten request by a professional person to remove offending search results without setting out any exceptional circumstances.
- A request to remove offending search results where there is an apparent argument for public interest by the search engine provider, without giving compelling reasons why there is no public interest or why the rights of the applicant should take priority over the rights of the public to know about the matter.
- Difficulties in understanding the different process that exists for removing images from the Google temporary library and links to videos.
- Insufficient knowledge as to whom to approach and what to say, in order to have autosuggestion search results that links to the offending articles removed from the search engine.
- Public figures mistakenly believe that because they are a public figure, the search engine will be correct in refusing to delist offending search results.
- By only applying to Google, but not realising that there are other search engines, such as Bing, which are also fairly popular on desktop searches in the UK.
If your right to be forgotten request was rejected, or has been ignored, don’t give up. Seek legal advice because there is still a great scope for overturning the initial decision by the search engine. Approach professionals to assist you. The more experience the firm has, the more likely they are to manage to have the decision to refuse your right to be forgotten request overturned.
Whilst experience in handling a right to be forgotten request is highly beneficial, so is the acknowledgement that each right to be forgotten case is different and unique. It is therefore unlikely that a sausage factory type of company will be able achieve the extraordinary results that you are looking for.
Many of these companies tend to employ low level skilled workers who operate on a mass scale whilst giving little regard to your individual circumstances and to the intricacies of the law. It might cost you slightly more to have an experienced solicitor assisting you with your right to be forgotten request, but most people want to know that they have done everything within their power to succeed with their right to be forgotten application and that their legal case had been deposited in safe and secure hands. This is particularly true if your right to be forgotten case is complex or if it has already been refused by the search engine.
Our firm specialises in complex cases associated to the right to be forgotten, particularly cases involving unusual circumstances, individuals who are in the public eye or are professional people and cases where others have already given up.
