  1. 1. WhatGoogle’snewPrivacyPolicychangesmean toyou James T Dabbagian (@JTDabbagian) www.jtdabbagian.com James@JTDabbagian.com
  2. 2. What’s going on?Google has elected to update its privacy policy. This affects allusers with Google Accounts who use services such as Gmail, Youtube, Google Analytics or Google Calendar.
  3. 3. What exactly will happen?On March 1st, Google will consolidate the privacy policies of all of its respective products into one single- serve privacy policy.
  4. 4. Why is Google doing this? Google has a vast amount of products, each one with a different privacy policy. Currently, there are more than 60 different privacy policies that fall under certain products.(1)(1)See Google: Policies and Principles Overview
  5. 5. Will the privacy policies be completely universal? The majority of Google products will fall under one universal privacy policy. However, certain products such as Google Wallet will have additional aspects in its policies as required by federal law; Chrome also has additional specific policies.Photo Credit: NASA
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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.
  8. 8. 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.
  9. 9. So what exactly is changing? The Google Privacy Policy is being consolidated to be made more readable for its users, so they understand exactly what data is being used.See “Google: Information We Share” for more information.
  10. 10. 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
  11. 11. Can I opt-out of the new privacy policy? You may not. The only way to not be subject to the new privacy policy is to stop using Google’s products before March 1st.Photo by Free Images Live
  12. 12. How can I see what data Google has on me?Google’s Dashboard allows you to see what data and information Google has access to, and the Ads Preferences Manager lets you see how Google determines what advertisements you see.Click here to go to your Google Dashboard. Click here to go to Google Ads Manager.

  14. 14. Summary: What is changing• Google is consolidating its privacy policies into one single policy for the majority of its products.• The new privacy policy will be much easier to read than the current ones.• Your data will be sharable across all of Google’s services
  15. 15.
