Google ordered to remove links
France’s data privacy agency ordered Google to remove search results worldwide upon request, giving the company two weeks to apply the “right to be forgotten” globally.
The order from CNIL comes more than a year after Europe’s highest court ruled that people have the right to control what appears when their name is searched online.
So far, Google says it has received more than 268,000 requests to remove URLs after the May 2014 decision.
Not all requests are granted — public figures cannot erase a sordid episode reported in the media while criminal convictions can remain in place.
