Frequently Asked Questions
- What are your rights under the ‘GDPR RoOA Law’? = As an individual, you can exercise your right to have your data erased if it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was initially collected or processed.

So rest assured that you have control over how your personal data is managed.
- When can I have the content removed under the Rehabilitation Of Offenders Act? = Depending on how long your sentence was and the crime you were charged for, you can have the content under your name removed. New laws were put into place in 2023 (More Information). However, you may consider Online Reputation Management, where we suppress the negative content down your search pages (More Information)
- Can you contact a website about an article you would like to remove under the Rehabilitation Of Offenders Act? = Yes, we can, depending on the site and the manner in which it was published. However, if we contact the website directly, they may not comply and create an extra piece of content stating how we tried to contact them for removal, hampering your reputation even further. The best action we can take is to submit a request to the search engines with legal reasoning under ‘GDPR RoOA’, and we have more certainty that they would comply. But this is never promised.
