understand what information we collect and why we collect it. We’ve also
taken steps to improve our Privacy Checkup and other controls that we
provide to safeguard your data and protect your privacy.
Nothing is changing about your current settings or how your information is
processed. Rather, we’ve improved the way we describe our practices and how
we explain the options you have to update, manage, export and delete your
We’re making these updates as new data protection regulations come into
effect in the European Union, and we’re taking the opportunity to make
improvements for Google users around the world.
Simpler structure & clearer language
We’ve improved the navigation and organisation of the policy to make it
easier to find what you’re looking for. We’ve also explained our practices
in more detail and with clearer language.
New descriptive videos & illustrations
Often a visual description is easier to understand than text alone, so
we’ve added short videos and illustrations throughout the policy.
Embedded privacy controls
We’ve made it easier to jump to key settings directly from the policy,
helping you make choices about your privacy.
The revised policy is available here
and will take effect on 25 May 2018.
Improving your privacy controls
Within the past year, we updated My Activity
so that you can better access and manage the data in your Google Account.
We also launched a redesigned Dashboard
which allows you to easily see an overview of products that you’re using
and your data associated with them.
This month, we’ve updated our Privacy Checkup
with new illustrations and examples to help you make more informed choices
about your key privacy controls. And since we understand that your
preferences may change over time, the new Privacy Checkup enables you to
sign up for regular reminders to check your privacy settings.
