Removal policies

We want to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible, but there are a few instances where we will remove content from Search.

Legal removals

We remove content from our search results if it includes:

  • Child sexual abuse imagery
  • We also remove content in response to valid legal requests, such as copyright notifications that meet the requirements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act

If you have information you’d like removed for legal reasons, use the legal removals page instead.

Personal information removals

Google may remove personal information that creates significant risks of identity theft, financial fraud, or other specific harms. Learn how to remove your personal information from Google
