Is Google collecting new data on me?The answer is no. All Google is doing is explaining in greater detail what data they already collect from you and how they use it.01101010101010001101010101010001101010101010001101010101010001101010101010001101010101010001101010101010001101010101010001101010101010001101010101010111000
Google currently has NO plans to sell your information to third-parties. As the FAQ states, “It’s simply not how we operate.”See “Google: Information We Share” for more information.
Are there exceptions to this? There are few exceptions to this, such as if required by court order. However these exceptions are the same as the ones from the previous policy. Nothing has changed.See “Google: Information We Share” for more information.
What about my data? Your data is now shareable across all of Google’s services. For instance, a search for “Books on Fish” using Google search may net you an advertisement about fish in Gmail or Blogger. Again, no new data is being collected or sold. This is all information Google already has.Tape library, CERN, Geneva 2 by Cory Doctorow
