Google announced that it is updating its privacy policies to make them simpler. They don't appear to have any changes involving CEO Eric Schmidt driving around neighborhoods in an ice cream truck, luckily.
Google isn't actually changing any of its privacy practices. It's just trying to make the language more understandable. Google Associate General Counsel Mike Yang outlines the updates:
In addition, we’re adding:
- More content to some of our product Help Centers so people will be able to find information about protecting their privacy more easily; and
- A new privacy tools page to the Google Privacy Center. This will mean that our most popular privacy tools are now all in one place.
