EU ruling means you can ask Google to remove personal search results

Internet users have the right to tell Google to hide embarrassing details of their past in search results, European judges ruled yesterday.

Anyone will be able to ask the technology giant and other search engines to block any reference to information about their life.

Although content cannot be removed from the internet altogether, the decision means it can be hidden from search results if it is ‘inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant, or excessive’.
