Recently the Court of Justice of the European Union ruled that certain users can ask search engines to remove results.

The results that can be removed are for queries that include the users name where the results returned are “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant, or excessive in relation to the purposes for which they were processed.”

The ruling from the Court of Justice is commonly being referred to as a "right to be forgotten" request.

I recently had an enquiry from a Mind at Rest Wills client regarding the best way to approach storing and preserving a single digital file that was only to be opened by one nominated person in the event of thier death. Hence the name of this post.

Now because the file in question was in digital format, it soon became very clear that a standard real world Will, would not do the job and different areas needed to be explored in order to meet my clients needs.

If you have not already heard of terms such as Digital Legacy, Digital Inheritance or Digital Will, it is only a matter of time before your attention is drawn to this subject matter. A matter of what some may call an "Alternative Legal Position" that now needs to be seriously debated and considered.

There is no doubt ones interpretation of the legalities surrounding your online assets will change as both the internet and the law that may govern it evolves over time.

What is a Digital Legacy ?

You may or may not already be aware of the growing discussion surrounding the topic of Digital Legacies, for those of you who are not yet up to speed, your digital legacy is the digital footprint you are leaving on- line in the “Cloud” and your digital footprint is continuing to grow.
