Google's making it easier to understand and manage user data it collects

By Raegan Johnson

This is part of Google's compliance with the new European privacy regulations known as the General Data Protection Regulation.

Although we're taking these steps to make our Privacy Policy easier to understand, it's important to note that nothing is changing about your current settings or how your information is processed. The new policy is now live, and ahead of the GDPR going into force on May 25th, Google is sending emails to every single one of its billions of users.

Thank you for considering becoming a member of LawInSport, supporting independent media and the promotion well researched, reference and accessible legal information that contributes to greater transparency and accountability in the sport and legal sectors.

"The policy now also includes explanatory videos and illustrations, because a visual description can be easier to understand than text alone".

Square Enix has announced its own E3 2018 showcase
First and foremost is without a doubt Kingdom Hearts III , the game that's kept Kingdom Hearts players waiting for so long. After having a pause of 2 years, Square Enix has chose to make an appearance on the largest annual gaming convention, E3.

With "Activity Controls", users can choose what activity is saved to their Google Account. That's because Google just made its Download Your Data tool more comprehensive. You'll continue to have granular control over the data you share with us when you use our services, but with clearer explanations.

Users can also take a "Security Checkup or Privacy Checkup" to reassure that their account is secure and that their privacy settings work for them.

Additionally, Google said that it is making it easier to port your Google data to other services, for example to transfer photos from Google Photos to other online photo repositories. To support this, Google launched the Data Transfer Project on GitHub, which offers early-stage open source code that will soon be available for any developer to use. The company updated its data processing terms for G Suite and Google Cloud Platform for those customers.

The GDPR places new obligations on Google, but also on any business providing services to people in the EU. We already ask publishers to get consent from their users for the use of our ad tech on their sites and apps under existing legislation, but we've now updated that requirement in line with GDPR guidance. Our ambition is to have the highest possible standards of data security and privacy, and to put our users and partners in control.
