If you believe that the search engine, Google, Bing or Yahoo, act unreasonably or  unfairly with your right to be forgotten application, feel free to take them to court.

If a search engine provider unreasonably persists with its refusal to comply with a justified right to be forgotten application, you will need to serve it with a formal GDPR Notice.

The consequence of an internet search engine provider’s failure to comply with a GDPR Notice, is to allow you to take your case to court.

In the past, when Google and other search engines refused to adhere to our formal notices, we have had little alternative but to take the matter to court on behalf of our clients. All the claims that we have so far filed against Google, resulted in a settlement and the de-listing of the offending material from internet searches.

It seems that internet companies that are based outside of the EU tend to persist with refusal to de-list material from the internet only until they are taken to court. So far, whenever our clients persisted, they always won an eventual de-listing of offending links from internet search results, winning their right to be forgotten.
