Cause for Concern?
NDTV.com reports that in a letter addressed to Google Chief Executive Larry Page, Jacob Kohnstamm, chairman of 27 national privacy regulators in the EU stated that the French data protection agency has already started a probe of the updated policy and is looking closely at how it will affect Google users in the EU. "We call for a pause,” Kohnstamm wrote, “in the interests of ensuring that there can be no misunderstanding about Google's commitments to information rights of their users and EU citizens, until we have completed our analysis." NDTV reports that the data protection agencies of several other countries including Ireland and Germany have also expressed their concern over the new policy.
But not everything is changing, as the blog points out, data liberation (taking personal information elsewhere) still remains, and Google pledges not to sell personal information or share it externally without permission.
