seems that Google adopted a habit of providing insufficient information in
Europe, ,just like they legally can do in US I am not fan of terms and

to adjust their features to local laws (advertising)

(like gmail, fb, twitter etc) it is always accompanied by giving out -
collecting data. As for me I am not afraid of tracking cookies used for ad
placements and I am not fearful of public web tools at all, but you are
right, Google should communicate it more clearly.
I dont think Dublin HQ people are even responsible for this. What would
