EU Urges Google on Transparency

EU regulators say Google must revise its privacy policy (The Verge)

The EU is fine with Google’s unified privacy policy acting as a “general guideline” about its operations, but it wants the search giant to return to its old system, which provided specific privacy notices for each Google product. It says these product-specific privacy policies must include “simple and clear explanations” on when, why, and how location, credit card, unique device identifiers (UDIDs), and telephony data is collected, along with information on how users can opt out. It asks that Google adds a specific clause for biometric data where necessary as there is currently no mention of facial recognition in its privacy policy.
