Get Forgotten by Google

Google, Facebook and other online organisations hold a great deal of information about you.

In Europe, courts have ruled that people have the right to have their information forgotten by Google, Microsoft and other online organisations.

Mostly so far it is people getting negative information forgotten (removed), but maybe it means in the future you will have the right to have everything about you forgotten by providers. At the moment, anything you tell or upload to Facebook, Google and others is with them forever.

Did you read the terms and conditions when you signed up?
