  • Requests to Block search results in Yahoo Search: Resource for European Residents

    The Court of Justice of the European Union decided that European residents can request specific URLs be blocked where the page contains personal data that is inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant, or excessive in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or processed, or where compelling legitimate grounds exist for blocking a specific URL. Yahoo users who are European residents can use this form to request that a URL be blocked for a page associated with their name that satisfies these criteria.

    The decision of the Court raises complex issues about the balance between an individual's right to privacy and the public's right to information. Our intake and review processes are still under development, and we are carefully reviewing the decision to assess the impact on our business and our users.

    If you believe that you are entitled to ask that information about you be blocked, please fill out the form below. If you are a minor, please ask your parent or legal guardian to fill in this form on your behalf.

    We will only be able to process complete requests submitted with  adequate identification information.

    Provide the name for which you are requesting the specified search results be blocked. This may be your legal name or a name by which you are commonly known.

    Please upload here a clear, readable copy of a document that verifies your identity and country of residence. This can include a copy of your driver's license, national ID card, or any other photo ID (not necessarily a government-issued document). You can upload one file up to 4Mb. If you are requesting search results be blocked for a name other than your legal name, please include documentation verifying this is a name by which you are commonly known.  We will use this information solely to verify your identity to prevent fraudulent blocking requests; you may obscure those parts of your ID document not relevant to that purpose. We will delete the copy of your ID document after your blocking request has been resolved, except where required by law.
