Technology giant Google launched an online form on Friday giving European users a chance to get personal information about themselves removed from search results.
The move follows a ruling earlier in May by the Luxembourg-based European Union Court of Justice (ECJ). This came after a Spanish man complained to the Spanish data protection agency that an auction notice of his repossessed home on Google's search results infringed his privacy.
Google originally argued that forcing it to remove such data amounts to censorship, but the new form will be its first attempt at complying with the ruling. On the online form, Google states that certain users can ask for the removal of search results that include their name where those results are "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant, or excessive in relation to the purposes for which they were processed."
