I’ve been a big fan of Google for quite some time. Seeing them improving their privacy practices makes me feel a lot better. It’s nice to know that they won’t be holding all that information after a certain amount of time.
Google will continue to keep their server logs, but they are going to remove key data from the logs that will identify individual users making it anonymous after 18-24 months.
Nice to see they are on the right track with this.
Our engineers are already busy working out the technical details, and we hope to implement this new data policy over the coming months (and within a year’s time). We’ll communicate more as we work out these details, but for now, we wanted you to know that we’re working on this additional step to strengthen your privacy.
