The CNIL found that;
“preliminary findings show that Google’s new policy fails to meet the requirements of the European Data Protection Directive (95/46/CE) regarding the information that must be provided to data subjects.”
The commision also say that;
“rather than promoting transparency, the terms of the new policy … raise fears and questions about Google’s actual practices.”
The amount of data Google is collecting is also a fear because of;
“the combination of data across services”
and they worry
“about the lawfulness and fairness of such processing.”
The new policy means that Google can share private information with it’s partners and third parties such as advertising companies.
This isn’t the first time Google has been caught violating users privacy, it was revealed last month that Google was monitoring browsers and even disabled Safari settings.

If you have a google phone, now would be the time to trade it in. Dont download google programs, such as google earth and do not use google for any searches. Their is a search engine called startpage.com It uses google but uses a filter so that your information will not be documented.
