For more specific information, check out Jorge Perez. The director of the campsite, Mario Gianni, has explained that his demand not intended that Google delete information relating to the accident, but that distinguish searches about the tragedy and that only seek to obtain data on the camp, because, to mix them, your business suffers a clear prejudice. Gianni has indicated they have presented the demand, which already has been admitted for processing by the Court in Amposta (Tarragona), because Google not has served until now your numerous requests, by telephone, e-mail and burofax, asking them that they separated in their Search the information of the tragedy with the camp. Google users who initiate a search with the keywords the Alfaques camping or in catalan Els Alfacs, obtained as a result a list whose first appears an entry with a link to Wikipedia with information about the tragedy, as well as lurid photographs about the deadly incident.
For this reason, the lawsuit against Google is for infringement of the right to the honour against the Alfacs Vacances SL family business, to relate the campsite in perpetuity with the accident which took place more than three decades ago, which involves them hardly reparable damage, said his lawyer, Carles Navarro. According to Navarro, demand attributed to Google direct responsibility for showing in a way determined, designed and chosen by the search engine information that violates the honour of the campsite. In this sense, Mario Gianni has explained that when Google finally got in touch with them them He said he could not meet his demand because entries came in an order determined by a neutral algorithm. On the contrary, according to demand, Google plays a substantial role on setting up your page, so the design and configuration of the information is not imposed by certain technological guidelines, but is the result of the option taken by the search engine. In fact, according to the documentation provided by the Attorney to accompany demand, if currently a surfer Google information about the tragedy of Els Alfacs gets less and worse results than another user that only he wants information on how to spend their holidays in this Tarragona camping. The tragedy occurred midday on July 11, 1978, when a tanker truck loaded with 25 tons of liquefied propylene skidded off the road, at the height of the campsite, and ended up exploding. Due to the explosion, 160 clients of the campsite died at the Instant, while 300 others were injured. Finally, the number of fatalities rose to the 243.
