Bing offers ‘right to be forgotten’

16 Jul, 2014

Bing begins complying with a European Union court ruling that says people have a right to have their personal information deleted from search results. They offer a form where users can submit requests for search result removals. They say they plan to evaluate the merits of each request and do not guarantee removal of any information:

In accordance with the ruling, the information you provide will help us to consider the balance between your individual privacy interest and the public interest in protecting free expression and the free availability of information, consistent with European law. As a result, making a request does not guarantee that a particular search result will be blocked.
