Google Streamlines its Privacy Policies

A recent press release from Google indicates that the company is overhauling its privacy policies and lining up all of them under a single release:

“So we’re rolling out a new main privacy policy that covers the majority of our products and explains what information we collect, and how we use it, in a much more readable way. While we’ve had to keep a handful of separate privacy notices for legal and other reasons, we’re consolidating more than 60 into our main Privacy Policy.”

Here you will have to be a little careful while going through different headlines floating around on the web. For instance, The Washington Post reports it as:

Some times headlines are misleading as it does in the above case. Anyone who opts for using Google product, he/she would have to agree to the terms of service, meaning that you are under its privacy policy. This simply means that you will never be ‘opt-out’ of privacy policy of Google.

A more positive approach has been used by Google with a new policy in place. With a new policy, you will get more relevant results regardless of your place. The most noticeable thing here is the blanket policy that means all users will be treated same while being on any of the Google service. For instance, when a user is watching a YouTube video about dogs, he would likely see a Google.com ad for pet food.

Nothing much has been changed from Google, but the changes made represents Google’s positive and proactive approach towards its privacy issues. In other words, the things have been made easier for the users as far as they understand them thoroughly. There act can bring similar or related content elsewhere on different but linked Google services.

The video given below will demonstrate the overhauled privacy polices pretty well to the users. Have a look at it and see what Google has brought for you:
