Has anyone got any positive stories about being de-listed? I'd be interested to hear them.
I'm hoping to go on holiday outside of the EU in the not too distant future, so I might check to see how results for me differ, if at all. EDIT:
Back from holiday - No different.
A side note for those interested - my court story was in the press and those stories come up first because I have an unusual name. This story about "The Google effect" prompted me to have a go at trying to get Google to de-list those links about me as my suspended sentence is finished. (The joys of an SHPO keep me "unspent" though so I wasn't hopeful but I thought I should give it a go). Google responded within a few days. Some of the links have fallen off Google results (hurrah!) but the newspaper stories will all remain, and will, of course, remain on the 'news' section as well as 'All results', here is the response:
"It is Google’s understanding that the information about you on this/these URLs - with regard to all the circumstances of the case we are aware of - is still relevant in relation to the purposes of data processing, and therefore the reference to this document in our search results is justified by the public interest. At this time, Google has decided not to take action on these URLs."
Not quite sure what "relevant in relation to the purposes of data processing" means but I thought I'd share anyway.
Fighting or Accepting - its difficult to know which is right and when.
