Google’s new privacy link - Yahoo! News

Filed under: — Aviran Mordo

Google apparently decided to keep it clean, in more ways than one.

The company has made a minor change to its home page, adding a link to its copyright line that leads to its Privacy Center.

Google’s decision, noted Thursday in a corporate blog and a public policy blog, is an attempt to quell a controversy over the posting of its privacy policy.

Saul Hansell, a reporter with The New York Times, first brought the issue to light in May when he asked whether the company was violating California law by not posting a link to its privacy policy on its home page. Privacy advocates soon got involved. Google had maintained that it was doing nothing unlawful.
