There is a new Google privacy and terms agreement floating around. As long as they don't ask you to log in to something via a link in that message, ignore it.

Yep, just read mine. I have a G-mail account on my Droid. Got one on that account and my non-google account on my home computer.

Dear Google user,

We're getting rid of over 60 different privacy policies across Google and replacing them with one that's a lot shorter and easier to read. Our new policy covers multiple products and features, reflecting our desire to create one beautifully simple and intuitive experience across Google.

We believe this stuff matters, so please take a few minutes to read our updated Privacy Policy and Terms of Service at http://www.google.com/policies. These changes will take effect on March 1, 2012.
Nope, haven't seen a thing.

Yeah, I received it today too. But, I have almost everything Google has to offer.

Looks legit to me. But I still wouldn't click on the links.

One policy, one Google experience
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Easy to work across Google
Our new policy reflects a single product experience that does what you need, when you want it to. Whether you're reading an email that reminds you to schedule a family get-together or finding a favorite video that you want to share, we want to ensure you can move across Gmail, Calendar, Search, YouTube, or whatever your life calls for with ease.
Tailored for you
If you're signed into Google, we can do things like suggest search queries or tailor your search results based on the interests you've expressed in Google+, Gmail, and YouTube. We'll better understand which version of Pink or Jaguar you're searching for and get you those results faster.
Easy to share and collaborate
When you post or create a document online, you often want others to see and contribute. By remembering the contact information of the people you want to share with, we make it easy for you to share in any Google product or service with minimal clicks and errors.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Protecting your privacy hasn't changed
Our goal is to provide you with as much transparency and choice as possible, through products like Google Dashboard and Ads Preferences Manager, alongside other tools. Our privacy principles remain unchanged. And we'll never sell your personal information or share it without your permission (other than rare circumstances like valid legal requests).
Got questions?
We've got answers.
Visit our FAQ at [removed link] to read more about the changes. (We figured our users might have a question or twenty-two.)



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notice of Change
March 1, 2012 is when the new Privacy Policy and Terms will come into effect. If you choose to keep using Google once the change occurs, you will be doing so under the new Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

Please do not reply to this email. Mail sent to this address cannot be answered. Also, never enter your Google Account password after following a link in an email or chat to an untrusted site. Instead, go directly to the site, such as mail.google.com or [removed link]. Google will never email you to ask for your password or other sensitive information.

It means they will continue to collect and even increase the amount of info they collect on you..

They are credited with helping the government with the "arab spring" and I personally believe that it was just a testing ground for us.

Re: Privacy-noreply@google


I can see how a scammer/spammer/phisher can use that as a way of taking advantage of you, however, I think that they got special permission to send out that mass email to anyone with a Google or Youtube account..including anyone who might have put their email address into a Google-owned service.

Re: Privacy-noreply@google


It is not spam if you deal with the company. If you sign up to one of their services then you are doing business with them. They have the right to contact you.

Same with the do not call list. If you do business with that company they can call you until you tell them they can't.

Re: Privacy-noreply@google


I downloaded a simple app for my droid.... the new security program wanted control of everything.
record phone number and sim card number, location , access to my gps, prevent my phone from snoozing , basically anything about the phone and they own everything else under the sun that the phone does or will do or might do.

Re: Privacy-noreply@google


I got the email, I do have G-mail that I use to register for stuff so my real email isnt full of spam.

I read where facebook is changing and now tracking your life and selling the info, Google already doese.

even if you dont have gmail, if you have chrome, google earth, sketup or any of the likes your in their databases.

If you want to cut down on the tracking and adds use Firefox 3.6 and install the add block plus and noscript plugins.
