  1. Image of a handwritten signature 
  2. Bank account or the credit card number
  3. Social security number of Government ID number

These are the conditions in which you cannot ask the site owner to get the information removed. Hence, the only option left for you in this case is to ask Google to remove this information. Google also has a blog published on how to build and maintain an online reputation.

  1. Google Phonebook – To populate its listings, the Google phonebook uses the third party information.
  2. Google Groups – It is basically a discussion forum platform. But, generally Google doesn’t remove information from this. 
  3. Google Street View – All the photos of the map related data like those of the streets and the businesses are in the Google street view. It includes everything from vehicles, homes, and people. In this product, Google attempts to blur the identifying details like the license plate numbers and the faces. 
  • Google Video and Youtube – These are the platforms that enable the people to create content on them. From these platforms, Google does not remove the content.
  • But, if you find any copyrighted material being showcased without permission then you got to complain to these platforms to remove it. Also, the thing that you are complaining for should be against Google’s terms and conditions. 
  • Blogger – As the name says, it is a blogging platform. Again, from this platform too, Google does not remove the content. If there is any content that violates the rules and regulations of Blogger can be reported to be removed from the platform.
  • If someone is impersonating your name without your permission you can raise a complaint. 
  • Google Maps – This product of Google too uses the third party information to access the information in case of the business details. You can always correct your information here if you are verified business owner.
