Google revises privacy policy despite EU protests

ZDNet - Google has introduced a new privacy policy that applies across its dozens of services, despite repeated pleas from European data protection authorities to wait for a proper impact assessment.

The move on Thursday is designed to allow Google to share users' personal data between services such as Google Search and YouTube, partly for user convenience and partly so Google can tailor its ads better. It forms part of a broad drive by Google to bake identity into its entire portfolio.
