  • What information we collect and why we collect it.
  • How we use that information.
  • The choices we offer, including how to access and update information.
Under the new policy, users will be governed by a single set of privacy policies. Users will be unable to opt-out of Google’s new method of data gathering, so those who object to the policy consolidation may need to take their information elsewhere.Under the new policy all information entered by users via Google will be indexed together. Google is claiming the shift will help its users search and offer spelling and contextual suggestions.  They plan to include shares from users’ Google+ friends in its search results. Posts from users’ Google+ friends are now included in searches regardless of whether those who initially shared the post wanted them to beGoogle Books, Wallet and Chromewill be excluded from the policy makeover for legal reason.
