The Italian Data Protection Authority (the “IDPA”) has resolved fifty complaints circa with regard to ordinary people, local public figures, professionals who have appealed the IDPA asking for de-indexation after being rejected by Google. Other ten complaints are instead being examined.

In a third of cases resolved, the IDPA has approved the requests coming from the data subjects, by ordering Google to remove the links to pages on the web.

This is the outcome of the IDPA’s activity almost a year and a half later the known "Google Spain" decision (C-131/12) of European Court of Justice on the right to be forgotten, that has forced Google to give a response to the requests of removal from the search results.
