- No, a private "watchdog" group asked them to postpone it until they figured out if it violated anything. It was not the EU. Google was under no obligation to comply.
It amazes me that people would be so shocked to find out that Google wants to use the data that you give to them!!! Nothing is changing except they can now consolidate the data. There is nothing wrong or 'illegal' about that. The whole point of Google collecting information is to understand how you do things, so they can tailor their products to you. What's so shocking about that?Mar 2, 2012
- & : I think that before you start using any other site that it might be good practice to sit down with a lawyer and completely review the EULA and Privacy Policies. You'll start to notice a trend in that EVERY site on the internet collects data. And they all combine it into one database for ease of tracking. If you think Google is alone in this, you should reconsider the internet in general. And even going outside for that matter.Mar 2, 2012
- Well aware every site collects data. Well aware they can all point back to where it was queried. Some would take longer than others to track and don't have a login with you name and email address to tie it to. Let's say you were at a library and someone was marking down every book you picked up. Would you feel you wanted more privacy?Mar 8, 2012
- If you were all alone in a library, and a computer was recording what books you looked at, and used that information to help you find other books you might be interested in, you would be happy. People make it sound like there's a room full of people with your browser window showing on their monitor, and they're just watching your every move. These are computers, not people. Even if a person were to look at the information Google was collecting, they would have no idea what they were looking at.
I want Google to know and understand the way I do things on the internet. It makes them better fit to adapt to my needs, which they do quite well. I would only feel like my privacy was violated if they then sent that information to everyone in my contacts. If your information is kept private, then your privacy is in tact.Mar 8, 2012
And who proves you that GOOGLE(!) does not send YOUR personal data(where,when and with whom you have been on what occasion ) to people ? Even worst; And who proves you that GOOGLE(!) does not SELL YOUR personal data(where,when and with whom you have been on what occasion ) to people , even if you set your personal data on private? You should read better buddy because this is EXACTLY what Google DOES! Your and that of too many others' mindset is so outdated and naive.Nov 28, 2013
