Google legal help page

Using PageRank, Google crawls thousands (or more) of web pages containing information relevant to your query. You can think of Google as a library with the largest catalog of virtual cards that exists – a huge index of information that guides you to the right resource. A qualified lawyer will help you determine what your legal rights are and develop a strategy on how to proceed. After a meeting with a lawyer, you can make informed decisions about your case. We may update these Additional Terms specific to the Services (1) to reflect changes to our Services or the way we do business – for example, when we add (or remove old) new Services, features, technologies, prices or benefits, (2) for legal, regulatory or security reasons, or (3) to prevent misuse or harm. Once you`ve received your court order to remove illegal content, you can send the order to Google so that Google can begin the removal process. Google has its own removal tool that can be used to submit legal requests (such as a court order) to remove content from its search engine. Below you will find various legal notices that Google is required to provide by law and/or contract (“Legal Notice”). The legal notices are incorporated by reference into Google`s Terms of Service. By using a Google product or service that contains Business Record data, including but not limited to mobile application features such as Google Caller ID (the “Product”), you agree to be bound by this legal notice. Unless otherwise noted, capitalized terms used in this legal notice have the meanings described in the Google Terms of Service. With a holistic approach, Legal Aid of North Carolina provides free legal aid when people need it most, because everyone deserves a lawyer when their home, health, or livelihood is at stake. If you need to remove personal information such as explicit or personal images, financial information, or “doxxing” content from Google search results, this personal data deletion resource can help.

As part of our efforts to remain transparent, a copy of any legal notice we receive may be sent to the Lumen Project for publication. Lumen is an independent research project led by the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School. The Lumen database contains millions of content takedown requests voluntarily shared by various companies, including Google. Its purpose is to facilitate academic and industrial research on the availability of online content. Lumen blackens the sender`s personal contact information (i.e. phone number, email address, and address). It`s not always clear which remedies and strategies work best to remove unwanted content. Even if you`ve decided which way to go, the process can be confusing and complicated. Some of our Services contain content owned by Google, for example, many visual illustrations that you see on Google Maps.

You may use Google Content subject to these Terms and any additional service-specific terms, but we retain all intellectual property rights we have in our Content. Do not remove, obscure or alter any of our trademarks, logos or legal notices. If you would like to use our trademark or logos, please visit the Google Trademark Rights page. In general, defamation is a legal art term that is best analyzed in a judicial system. From a legal point of view, defamation refers to a false statement that is published or shared with a third party and that damages reputation. Find out how the Supreme Court`s decision in Roe v.

If the unwanted content in question is an image, you need to find the URL of the image.

It`s best to think of content you can control (social media, blogs, and websites) as a reflection of your personal brand. Any content you put on the internet can tarnish your personal and professional reputation for years to come.

In fact, positive content from blogs and personal websites can be used to remove negative content online (reducing the likelihood of it appearing on the first page of your search results).

If you remove a dead link or modified page, consider using Google`s removal tool for outdated content: Google has a large keyword index that you can use to determine search results. What makes Google unique (and sets it apart from other search engines) is how it ranks its results. Google`s algorithm, called PageRank, assigns a relevance value to each web page. We`ve litigated more than 350 cases and helped remove more than 50,000 pieces of online content. We know what it takes to remove unwanted, defamatory and negative content from the Internet. Fortunately, Google will remove some forms of content without a court order, saving you time and legal fees. If you`re making a removal request for legal reasons, use this Google support tool and follow the instructions to submit your request. Note that Google rarely honors takedown requests for legal reasons without a valid court order. These Terms reflect how Google`s business works, the laws that apply to our business, and certain things that we have always held to be true.
