In a post on the official Google blog, Mike Yang, Google's Associate General Counsel, confirmed the changes would be put in place on October 3, with users prompted on many popular Google services today to check over the new policy before it goes live next month.
"Long, complicated and lawyerly—that's what most people think about privacy policies, and for good reason," Yang wrote. "So we’re simplifying and updating Google’s privacy policies. We want to make our policies more transparent and understandable."
Yang also mentions the search giant will be posting more content on how to keep your information private in certain Google applications on their respective support websites, while a page describing tools that can be used to improve privacy has been already been added to the Google Privacy Center.
