Internet giant Google has confirmed that it would remove some search results from all of its sites starting next week within the European Union. The California-based tech giant confirmed that in response to discussions with regulators, the company would begin delisting from all sites, beginning next week, if Google detects that a search user is in the EU, the Verge reported.

“Starting next week, in addition to our existing practice, we will also use geolocation signals (like IP addresses) to restrict access to the delisted URL on all Google Search domains, including google.com, when accessed from the country of the person requesting the removal,” Google said in a statement.

“We will apply the change retrospectively, to all delistings that we have already done under the European Court ruling,” Google added.
