Mediation by Dutch DPA concerning delisting of search results by Google

Since July 2014, the Dutch Data Protection Authority has received 111 requests to delist search results on a person's name in a search engine. The right to de-list information from the index of a search engine follows a ruling by the European Court of Justice in the case Google Spain (C-131/12). All requests related to Google. In 32 cases the Dutch DPA has mediated between Google and the data subject. In 24 cases the search results were delisted.
