Google simplifies its privacy policies

4 Set/10

One of the things that’s really come to public attention internationally in 2010 is the small matter of our online privacy rights.  Facebook has been the biggest victim of a public and press backlash in this regard but now search giant Google is simplifying it’s privacy policy in an attempt to make it friendlier for its vast user base.

NeoWin has reported that in a post on the official Google blog, the Associate General Counsel, Mike Yang confirmed the changes will be formally in place on October 3rd.  He described the changes as…

“Long, complicated and lawyerly—that’s what most people think about privacy policies, and for good reason,” Adding… “So we’re simplifying and updating Google’s privacy policies. We want to make our policies more transparent and understandable.”

The upshot of this is that 12 different privacy policies the company currently has for its various services will be streamlined into one, and that the language of that policy will be written more in English than in legalese.  Finally they say that they’re removing parts of the policies that are no longer relevant.

The company has also put online a page describing the tools that are available for users to help improve their privacy with Google even further.
