Google Writes To Privacy
Google updated their privacy statement on Friday. Many have had privacy concerns for Google and other search engines for a while now. This is the latest effort by Google to get privacy concerns under control.
In a statement on the GoogleBlog on Friday, Nicole Wong, a lawyer for Google, explained the reasoning for the update:
The complete statement is in the “Google Privacy Center.” Google has had problems in recent months regarding privacy issues. There was a rift recently between Google and CNet over a story on privacy they wrote and used Google’s Eric Schmidt as the example.
The story printed some of his personal information and Google chose not to speak with them regarding any of their stories for several weeks. While Google’s own policies regarding privacy are detailed and thorough, privacy regarding content in their search engine and others is entirely another matter.
