Do you want to be forgotten from Google searches? Well, you can - and now over 12,000 people have opted out of Google's massive reach on the biggest search engine in the world.
A Google spokesperson said that over 12,000 requests had been submitted by European who wanted to remove themselves from Internet searches. The Mountain View-based search giant said that each request would be examined individually, in order to make sure it meets the European Court of Justice's criteria. This criteria allows users to have themselves deleted from search results, such as when the data is outdated or inaccurate.
Google hasn't said how long this will take for the links to vanish from the Internet, but it definitely won't be happening overnight, that's for sure.
