Right to be forgotten

Right to be Forgotten
It seems for many, an application to Google under a right to be forgotten is simply a matter of filling out a form, which represents the only chance they will ever have to get rid of unwanted information on the internet. There might never be another such opportunity so it's important to not mess it up. 

Right to be Forgotten
Unfortunately, so  many right to be forgotten applications are refused because the applicant failed to appreciate that they had to refer Google to the right law or because the
application was being misunderstood by Google's employees, who when in doubt, are instructed by their boss to  say “no”. 

If the applicant is unsuccessful at this stage; they
may request that Google reviews its decision; alternatively they may
complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office or seek a court order
requiring Google to filter search engine results, all of which are
likely to involve incurring further costs. Find out how to get the right to be forgotten application right first time round in the following article:

Is it true that online shoppers are more likely to leave negative review than positive?

A new research carried out on behalf of online review website Feefo found that internet users in the UK are more likely to go online and post a review following a positive shopping experience than a negative one.
The somewhat surprising revelation came about after 2000 UK consumers were surveyed to help understand their online reviewing habits.
Yair Cohen, internet law and social media lawyer at Cohen Davis Solicitors and panellist at a Feefo roundtable event, which considered the finding of one of the most comprehensive surveys ever carried out amount online shoppers in the UK said:
"It is refreshing and highly assuring to online retailers to learn that shoppes are willing to rewards them for providing positive experience and fantastic customer care."

The survey also found that many online shoppers are become sceptical about credibility of some online reviews and that online reviews delivered by video are likely to earn higher degree of credibility.
Yair Cohen said that:
“Video reviews have a higher level of credibility, especially when the reviewer is on-screen speaking to the camera.” 
But he said trust in online reviews requires a new regulatory body to establish standards and establish greater credibility in the whole review system.
