Google comes clean with Transparency Report

Transparency Report charts censorship issues FAQ

There may be multiple requests that ask for the removal of the same piece of content, or data for the same account. Because of the complexity of these requests, the numbers we are sharing do not reflect the total number of accounts subject to data disclosure requests by governmental agencies. Also, this report doesn’t indicate whether Google complied with or challenged any request for user information, although we do provide percentages about our compliance with requests to remove content. We hope to provide more detail about our compliance with user data requests in a useful way in the future.
