Google privacy policies

Google are getting rid of 60 different privacy policies and replacing them with one. It covers multiple products and features which is a good idea. As most people will have signed up with a number of these policies (often not reading them) this will make things easier for them. The changes take place on March 1 2012.

Privacy issues are very much in the news here in New Zealand at the moment with Kim Dotcom's arrest. Dotcom along with three others were arrested in Auckland recently on charges of racketeering, money laundering and internet copyright piracy in the United States.

It is alleged they gained around $US175 million in criminal proceeds through the world's largest file sharing website, Megaupload. These issues are important for students to understand as these are an important part of today's global society.
