Remove private information from the internet.

There are different ways by which you can remove private information from the internet. Private information could be information that you placed yourself on the internet but which you no longer wish to remain online. Private information is also information or data that was placed on the internet by others.

It could be your address, your date of birth, names of members of your family and other information, which if processed in a certain way, could be considered as private. Private information that you can remove from the internet may also include images and videos showing your face or body, whether posted by you or by others.

You can remove private information from the internet by using privacy law, data protection law, copyright law and sometimes even defamation law. Often, however, a well written letter to the operator of the website which hosts your private information would do. If you are a retiring celebrity or used to be a model or an adult entertainer, it is likely that there is large amount of private information about you on the internet.

In some cases, this may include hundreds and even thousands of articles, images and videos, which perhaps earlier in your life you were happy to remain online but now you consider private and wish to remove from the internet. Maybe because you started a family or a different job, images or other private information that you were previously happy to see on the internet is no longer to your liking. In this case, it might take some time to remove all your private information from the internet, and in some cases, up to one year.

But this should not deter you because you have now arrived at the right place, perhaps the only place in the UK where there is help available. You will be pleased to hear that we have already assisted individuals exactly like you in systematically removing private information from the internet. Brows our website for case studies, testimonials and plenty of free advice and call us free on 0800 612 7211so that you can speak with one of our lawyers who will be delighted to advise you and give you the legal support you need.

    Why instruct Cohen Davis to handle your breach of privacy matter

    Types of breach of privacy claims

    Breach of privacy under privacy law might occur following publication of private information in newspapers or on social media. Examples of a breach of privacy include the publication of a home address, references to one’s medical conditions, whether mental or physical health. These examples also include, references to sexual preferences or even to sexual acts with a third party, publication of telephone calls or in person conversations where the person whose privacy is breached, had an reasonable expectation that those conversations would remain private. Further examples such as disclosure of private family matters, disclosure of certain criminal convictions, references to certain aspects of divorce proceedings are also popular breaches of privacy that victims may go through. 

    The legal basis for a breach of privacy claim

    Privacy law allows you to bring a privacy claim under the common law of misuse of private information, under breach of confidence or under breach of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or Data Protection Act 2018. Often, a breach of privacy claim will include a claim for breach of personal data and in some cases, a claim for defamation or for malicious falsehood. 

    Can a breach of privacy occur where the information published is false

    Under privacy law, you can bring a claim for breach of privacy even if the information published is false. Private information can be true or false, which means that in many cases, you would not be expected to confirm or deny the truthfulness of the private information which is published in breach of your privacy. Often, where the breach of privacy involves false information, you can also bring, at the same time, a claim for under defamation or malicious falsehood.

  • Remove personal information a USA citizen. Eu privacy lawyer.Jurisdiction: United Kingdom

    Pages removed from:

    Date of removal: 28 June 2016

    Number of web pages removed: 1

    Additional information: Our client was a successful, well known medical practitioner from New York. Our privacy lawyers were tasked with the removal of private information from a Daily Mail article concerning our USA based client. The private information included references to our client’s intimate activities as a private individual, references to his work as a doctor and other personal information including his name, place of practice and an image of his face. The publication in the Daily Mail had a detrimental impact on our client, including on his income. Our privacy lawyers succeeded in negotiating substantial amendments to the Daily Mail article including the removal of our client's name and photograph so that he could no longer be identified. We successfully argued that UK privacy laws should equally apply to an American Citizen. Our privacy lawyers resolved the matter without the need for our client to commence litigation.

    Additional information: An article online was negatively impacting our client's employment and future employment prospects. It focused on criticising our client for actions she took on behalf of her previous employer having followed instructions. Consequently the article was both misleading and inaccurate. The publication was causing hugely disproportionate damage to our client, both financially and psychologically. Our data protection and internet lawyers successfully facilitated the removal of the article for our client, allowing our client to progress their career unimpeded.

The user had captured an intimate video of our client in compromising positions and published it online together with personal identifying information. The user had created a number of Google + accounts under our client's name and used those to publish and link to the intimate video. The video and the derogatory captures about our client were appearing visibly on Google searches. Our solicitors successfully communicated with Google Inc to ensure the removal of the videos from the internet and the deletion of the Google + accounts and any other Google searches that included private information about our client.
