Transparency Report #1

Published on March 14, 2019 by

We want to be transparent from the start about how we handle content removal requests and government orders.

The service is governed by the Terms of Service and the Privacy Policy. Content removal requests can be filed here. These are the categories under which we remove content from the search results when reported via content removal requests:

  1. Patent, Trademark, Trade Secret, Copyright infringement
  2. Personal data
  3. Spam / Malware / Phishing / Hacking
  4. Child pornography
  5. Expressions of racial, ethnic, religious or gender hatred

Statistics

Since the launch on October 10, 2018, we received 7 content removal requests. We complied with all of them. This is the breakdown of the reasons (one removal request can cite multiple reasons):

  • 6 removal requests due to “Personal data”
  • 2 removal requests due to “Spam / Malware / Phishing / Hacking”
  • 1 removal request due to “Expressions of racial, ethnic, religious or gender hatred”

We have received 0 court orders.
