Submission + - Google implements consolidated privacy policy (bbc.co.uk)

Tastecicles writes: The BBC reports that Google is to implement its new consolidated privacy policy today, bringing together a single policy that covers some sixty different services including Gmail and Youtube. The French aren't happy with this move, claiming that it falls afoul of EU data protection legislation, but Google claims that its new policy helps it to tailor search results to individual user accounts. For those not wanting the tailored ads, Google suggests that users get smarter — performing Google searches without signing in, for example, or (my suggestion) using Google in "incognito" mode and/or turning cookies off.
