Right to be forgotten criminal record
There are at least three different routes to help you remove criminal record from the internet or at least from Google search results. Most of those who wish to remove links to a criminal record from Google searches are aware of the right to be forgotten application but often are unaware of a much quicker, and more reliable method to persuade Google to remove references to old criminal convictions from search results.
We often advise clients, who are in a bit of a rush, to pursue Google through a s10 Data Protection Notice instead of via a right to be forgotten application. Understandably, Google has given the right to be forgotten a relatively narrow interpretation, which just about complies with the famous Google Spain case which resulted in the creation of the concept of a right to be forgotten.
Under s10, however, Google’s obligations are much more stringent which means Google is unable to take a narrow approach in relation to those.
