Contact Webmaster

To do this you will need to contact the website maintainer, otherwise known as a webmaster, in order to get personal information removed online. Webmasters are generally easily reached throughout email and/or telephone numbers listed on the site. You’ll want to make sure that you do in fact contact the webmaster, as he or she will have the ability to remove the page containing personal information entirely.  This is a much better alternative to just removing the information from Google Search Results, which still leaves other access points to this information available on the site itself.
