The search engine had previously had a massive 60 individual privacy policies, for each of its multimedia services. On 1st March, all of these policies will be combined into one shared policy that will cover Google services such as Google Search, Gmail, YouTube and Google+.
Google has a number of services, including everything from email, video uploading and social networking, and of course the search engine where it all began.
Google has been heavily criticised in the past for the way in which it handles and shares user data. In its previous attempt at a social networking platform, Buzz, Google had unwittingly revealed each user's most emailed contacts to other account holders.
The Federal Trade Commission has since come to an agreement with Google that will prevent it from unlawfully using personal information and sharing a user's data without their permission.
