David criticises changes to Google privacy policy


David claimed that “if the state collected the amount of information on individuals as Google does there would be uproar”, in response to Google’s change in privacy policy on Thursday.

The change means that private data collected by one Google service can be shared with its other platforms, including Youtube and Gmail. He further commented that ”if Google continues to deliberately and sometimes covertly intrude on people’s privacy then it is inviting countries to legislate to limit the freedom of action of all web companies.

His comments were covered in local newspapers, including the Goole Times.
