Instead of deleting legalese to make it easier to understand, why don't they just make their privacy policy more, um ... private?

I'm not too concerned really. Besides, who reads these "terms of agreements" and "privacy policies" that are ridiculously long? Apple's for example is 56 pages long. NOTHING is ever truly private from what anybody tries to [legally] spell out to us...

Deleting legalistic sections of their privacy policy is not to make things easier to understand, it's to allow them to invade your privacy even more effectively, without worrying about legal backlash. The Bush administration did this by instituting the Patriot Act, because they couldn't just delete parts of the Constitution. But Google can just delete sections of their policies because (on the surface) they are a private corporation. Most of us know better than to think that they have no affiliation with the intelligence communities of our government though. Contractors break every law in the book by proxy and are given immunity and billions of dollars for their services. That's the american way.

Google has always kept everyone's data private. They post your data all over the internet and say it came from an anonymous user. Since the data does not have any information someone could use to identify you then it's still private.

Okay cool, so I'm not the only one who thought of that eye based on the picture in the article? LOL
