12. Removal Request

Following a recent ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ), users of our Website and Services who are EU residents may request that certain results do not appear following a web search for the user’s name.

If you would like to request the removal of a search result generated using your name as the search term, and the law of your jurisdiction requires us to honor that request, please send your request in writing to the address set forth under Section 11. To assist us in processing your request in timely manner, please make your request in English if you are able to do so. Your request should include any information relevant to your request, including, without limitation: (i) your name, email and postal address; (ii) the URL (i.e., “web address”) for each link that you are requesting to be removed; (iii) a brief explanation of why you believe such results should be removed; and (iv) an explanation as to why the contents of the link you wish to have removed relate to you.

To help us prevent fraudulent removal requests, please also include a legible copy of a document that verifies your identity. You need not provide a government-issued document; a utility bill or similar mailing will suffice. You may also obscure parts of the document such as identifying numbers so long as the document continues to clearly identify you. If you are requesting the removal of search results that contain photographs of you, please ensure that the identifying document includes your photograph. If you are making the request on behalf of another person, please indicate your relationship to that person and provide evidence of your authority to make such request. All requests for removal will be reviewed by GC’s legal and compliance team and we reserve the right, in compliance with applicable laws, to accept or reject, or make further inquiries regarding, any requests.
