Personal Content and Product Policies, and Removal Requirements
Google Search’s content and product policies apply globally. If you find content in which you or someone you represent is the subject and want it removed, check our personal content policies below to know if the content meets the removal requirements. You can make a removal request as directed in the article. You can also answer the questions in the Report a Problem section of our Help Center. We’ll check the content you report to us to see if it should be removed from Google search results.

If the website's owner has removed the information, it'll eventually be removed from Google Search as part of our regular updating process. However, you can also request to refresh outdated content with the Outdated content refresh tool.
Content may be removed for specific legal reasons, including, but not limited to:
- Copyright infringement
- Trademark violations
- Court order
If you have been the subject of explicit content shared without your permission or in ways you didn't agree to, support services are available.
