Microsoft Is Still Working On “Right To Be Forgotten” Process For Bing Users In The UK

1

European Union court ruled last week that search engines like Google should be able to remove personal links of users on request. Google has already started implementing this Right To Be Forgotten request form last month, and as per Search Engine Land, it has been taking in about 10,000 requests per day. This law applies for Bing too. But, Microsoft Bing team is still working on implementing this process.

Here is the statement from Microsoft,

We’re currently working on a special process for residents of the European Union to request blocks of specific privacy-related search results on Bing in response to searches on their names.  Given the many questions that have been raised about how the recent ruling from the Court of Justice of the European Union should be implemented, developing an appropriate system is taking us some time.  We’ll be providing additional information about making requests soon.

    Technically it’s a half of an hour job. Form to “forget”, internal search, mark all items in base as hidden. That’s all! But… NSA?
