Google Challenged to Protect Privacy

A watch dog group asked Google to put up or shut on the whole personal data storage issue.

The nonprofit group Consumer Watchdog asked on Friday that Google give users of its search engine the ability to “opt out” of leaving personal data, such as IP addresses, on Google’s servers.

“Many people don’t understand that the kind of unnoticed conversations that are going on between them and [Google’s servers],” said John Simpson, policy advocate at Consumer Watchdog. “Some of that can provide a useful, helpful service to the user, but people need to know what they’re providing and made informed judgments about whether they want to or not.”
