The European Union Court of Justice said that ordinary people can ask Google to remove some sensitive, irrelevant or outdated information from Internet search results.
Earlier, the search engine stated that it does not control search results and bears no responsibility for personal data that is “in open access”. The responsibility lies with the owner of the website that provides the information, and Google merely presents the user with a link.
The case was brought by a Spanish man who complained that an auction notice of his home that could be found on Google infringed upon his privacy.
Around 180 similar complaints have been filed in Spain.

FTC Seeks Comments on Additional Proposed Revisions to Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule
Children’s On-line Privacy Protection Rule has not changed since 1999 and this will be the first real overall of the system.
With the rise of social media ever on our mind it has become a matter of not just how ,we protect our children! But the fact we must at all costs shield them from the type of people who will at any cost, exploit their social appetite for such sites as Facebook and the like!
As the rise of social media has grown to obtain every extra morsel of information about our lives, it has led to many cases of children being exploited for gain! As in the past we have moaned and tried to stop our children consuming sugary drinks or eating quick snacks and we failed.
This time it is different and we must act now and l welcome any changes that will strengthen this act and provide a way to protect their fragile minds!
This time we must not fail them, they are our future!
