Google recently announced plans to rewrite its privacy policy and terms of service to consolidate the various policies of its different services.

"Under the new policy all information entered by users via Google will be indexed together," writes Threatpost's Christopher Brook. "Google is claiming the shift will help its users search and offer spelling and contextual suggestions. Users should also expect to see a bevy of new, specifically targeted ads catered to their recent searches."

"Users will be unable to opt-out of Google’s new method of data gathering, so those who object to the policy consolidation may need to take their information elsewhere," Brook writes.
