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.
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, in which case, all references to “you” or “your” will refer to the minor child. If submitting on behalf of a minor child, please describe that relationship in the text box below. If you are submitting on behalf of someone other than yourself that is not your minor child, please specify your relationship to that person in the text box below.
This form and the related evaluation processes may change as additional guidance becomes available, and individual submissions may be reevaluated over time.
Part 1 - Requester Information
Please provide the name on which you are requesting the search results to be blocked. The name you provide may be your legal name or a name by which you are commonly known. If the name provided is different from the identification documentation you provide us, please give us a brief explanation in the text box below. We will only process requests for your legal name or a name by which you are commonly known and will not process requests where a user ID (for example, 63foxtrot99) is submitted as a name.
Please select your country of residence*
Please upload documentation that verifies the information you provide above.
  • Include document(s) that verify your name as entered above and your country of residence.
  • If the name on which you are requesting search results to be blocked is a name other than your legal name, please include documentation or an explanation confirming this is a name by which you are commonly known. (For example, if your legal name is Mary but the name for which you are commonly known, and on which you are requesting search results to be blocked, is May, please submit a written explanation as to how May came to be linked to your identity in the text box below).
  • You may obscure any details on the documents that are not related to verifying your name, country of residence, or the validity of the document itself. If you are requesting that we block an image and you are providing a photo ID, please do not obscure the ID photo.
  • Documents need not be government-issued identification, however, we may not be able to process requests where the verification of your information is incomplete, inadequate, or unreliable.
  • We will use this documentation to verify the information you have provided on this form. We will delete the documentation as required by law.
