Google updates privacy policy so you can actually understand it

Importantly, Google says that it has "made it easier to jump to your privacy settings directly from the policy, helping you make choices about your privacy".

All but a slim minority of sporting bodies will be affected by the General Data Protection Regulation1 (GDPR) on some level. As such, many companies are reformatting or in some cases rewriting their policies to bring them into compliance with the new law. Although the policy itself is remaining the same, it's now much easier to understand. However the good news is that if you'd rather not Google have a log of those details online, then you'll be pleased to learn that you'll now be able to delete them. It's also one of the better ones.

To be clear, Google hasn't changed its services or permissions, it's just making them easier to understand.

You can now download your info from even more Google services (the company does not make it clear which ones exactly) and also schedule periodic downloads.

Technology companies have been scrabbling to update their privacy policies in order to comply, and today Google reveals the steps it has taken to become compliant.
