European privacy regulators want all the internet search engines like yahoo and Google to apply “right to be forgotten” worldwide.
The new regulation will let people delete their names or information from the search results of the Google. However, users can merely perform this action if they think that the information is inadequate, irrelevant or outdated.
Earlier, Google scrub search results merely from the local versions of the websites. For instance, if a person filed a complaint then the largest search engine will delete the search result only from its country. Obviously, it sounds useless since it takes the search result away from the sight a country.
Thus far, around 170,000 people have filed their request for the removal of certain search results. The figures include all kind of requests such as news, articles and webpages.
Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin, the head of watchdog privacy of France informed that the authorities are handling it from both technical and legal perspectives. Therefore, it is essential for Google to include the “.com” instead of “fr.” Or “Gr.” Despite this Pierrotin stated that these guideline would be printed till Thursday or Friday.
This particular matter of “right to be forgotten” has distributed privacy controllers and experts into two groups. A few of them believe that the present implementation of Google is an evidence that it is a pretty easy task for to switch between national versions.
On the other hand, a spokesman of Google notified that the firm would soon closely analyzed the guideline.
