The government has agreed to proposals that would allow Australians to opt out of targeted advertising, require search engines to "de-index" certain information about them, and draw small businesses into Australia's privacy scheme.

Hopefully by “require an entity to delete or de-identify their personal information.” They mean we get to choose and not the people supposedly doing the deleting. Cos otherwise they will “de-identify” and we all know that means piss all in reality.
