So am I to assume that in the U.S. a complainant MUST use the online form provided via the above link (see my post)?
Everything I've read, both at G's site and elsewhere, leads me to the online form-based procedure. Yet I haven't read anything that explicitly indicating that you MUST use ONLY this form, and that a request in writing (as is required in the U.K.) is unacceptable. In fact, a page at Google's Transparancy Report refers obliquely to requests made by means other than its online form. Here's the URL:
Again, I can't find any explicit directive for submitting a written request in the U.S. via mail or fax (as opposed to using the online form). Is this because Google is trying to discourage old-fashioned written submissions, or have I simply not found the basic information that is right under my nose?
