Request to Block Bing Search Results In Europe

This form could not be submitted. Please ensure that you have resolved all the errors and try again.
In 2014, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled that individuals have the right to ask search engines to block results for queries that include the person's name if the results are inadequate, inaccurate, no longer relevant, or excessive. If you are a European resident and want to request that Microsoft block search results on Bing in response to searches on your name, please use this form.
If you are requesting delisting of content you posted on a social media site, the tools and processes available from that site may be the most effective way for you to remove this content from search results. You can find links to the help pages of common third party sites here.
If you wish to report a concern to Bing that is not a “right to be forgotten” request, please go here.
Please provide complete and relevant information for each applicable question on this form, as we will use the information to evaluate your request. We may consider sources of information beyond this form to verify or supplement the information you provide. In considering requests, Bing must balance individual privacy interests against the public interest in protecting free expression and the free availability of information, consistent with European law. Making a request does not guarantee that a particular search result will be blocked.
Note regarding minor children: If you are a minor, you may submit this form on your own. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a minor, you may submit this form on that minor’s behalf.
This form and the related evaluation processes may change as additional guidance becomes available, and individual submissions may be reevaluated over time.
