Personally Identifiable Information

Policy Date:

Apr 14, 2022

Upon request, we’ll remove personal information if we believe it could lead to a specific harm, such as identity theft or financial fraud. This includes sensitive government ID numbers such as U.S. Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, credit card numbers, images of signatures and personal health documents. In cases where this information is broadly available, like national ID numbers listed on a government website, we generally don’t process removals. We sometimes refuse requests if we believe someone is attempting to abuse these policies to remove other information from our results.
