Content and ad removal requests on Ecosia

At Ecosia, we work with a range of search providers to deliver search results and ads, primarily from Google and Bing Microsoft, to our users. We’re not able to remove inappropriate content, advertisements or personal information ourselves, only our search partners can. The article explains how submit removal requests directly to them.

Identify your search result provider

The search results and search related ads on Ecosia come from our search partners Microsoft Bing and Google. Which partner your search results come from depends on your geographical location, the type of device you are using and which permissions you have given for setting cookies. 

You can check which search providers are available to you at any time in the Settings page. If both providers are available in your location, you can also select one as your own preference. You may need to adjust your cookie settings to be able to choose Google as your preference but we'll ask you first to confirm.

Select your preferred search provider

Submit a request to remove personal information 

As Ecosia’s results originate from Google and Microsoft, we do not have the ability to remove organic search results. As content removal requests are handled by our search partners, you will need to request removal with them.

Please note that Ecosia does not control the content that websites publish. To make sure content is removed from search results, your best option is to contact the webmaster for the website that published the content and request that it be deleted or removed. Even if Ecosia removes the URL from search results, it will continue to exist and can be discovered by going directly to the web address until the webmaster or website removes the content.
