here is  press release on Google's new privacy policy

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
conditions personally, I also click next-next-accept :) but as far as I
know facebook hired some local policy experts recently  (in March) in order
to adjust their features to local laws (advertising)

I guess everyone by now is aware that if something is gotten free of charge
(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
you suggest?
