Google readies automated tool for those wanting to disappear from search results

Loek Essers | May 19, 2014
The online tool will have a mechanism to prevent unauthorised takedowns, said a German DPA with knowledge of the matter.

"As far as I understand they have not decided how they will cope" with these takedown requests in the Nordics, said Bjørn Erik Thon, Norway's Data Protection Commissioner.

People who want references to them deleted from Google would first have to file a request with Google directly, Paula Nerney, senior investigations officer of the Irish DPC said in an email. Data protection authorities should become involved if an individual's request made to Google is not satisfied, she said.
