Google’s Giant Single Privacy Policy On A Roll, Interesting To Have A Look

Posted on Mar 1 2012 - 5:10am by Editorial Staff

It would be better if before logging into Google’s account today you must know that the search giant has updated its sixty product Terms of Service and Privacy Policy into one single giant policy. The company is bringing all the data together collectively into one single major online property. Checking out the heat what’s exactly going on, take a look at your dashboard for a full run down of these, the company include Search, Gmail, Google+, Docs, YouTube, Picassa and Blogger.

The Data Protection Authority, France has requested yesterday the search giant Google to delay the launch of its new privacy policy as it appeared to violate European Union Law, the request comes just two days before Google new “big and single” privacy policy scheduled to take into effect. Google announced the new policy last month, billing it as a way to streamline and simplify the privacy practices it employed worldwide across about 60 different online services, and to introduce greater clarity for users.

Some interesting take-outs from the reading:

  • Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
  • Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
  • We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
  • When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for a business listing you have added to Google Maps). Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service. Also, in some of our Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.

The best one:

  • “after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.”
