It carries the “Google” double responsibility, says Jules bolontsks Manager “future of Privacy Forum”, which is one non-profit research sponsored by Google and other technology companies: “Google has a special responsibility to provide meaningful assurances about how they use data because of its breadth.
“Google” as other entities that provide services to Internet users on its attention to users ‘ privacy and protect their personal information from government interference, but at the same time does not depend on their data collection and analysis, are a major source of profits, with reference to the opposition of some users to track and analyze much of their personal lives online.
Although Google does not retain the same amount of information associated with each person as is the case with the social networking site Facebook, which has more than 1.15 billion active users per month and collect data less than his “Google”, but the promotion of “Google” to the users of their services to participate via social service “Google plus” closer to catching up with Facebook.
The report of the newspaper the Wall Street Journal the u.s. data collected by Google about users of its services and their interest in the protection of their privacy, especially with the recent growing interest in the subject, particularly in the United States, Europe, and the company was forced to delay some of its products to address issues relating to the privacy of our users.
The newspaper cited people linked to data collection in “Google” as saying that an active user can result within one hour of using “Google” hundreds and thousands of pieces of data are kept on the company’s computers.
The information collected by Google data on Internet users, searching and watching videos on YouTube which visitors more than 1 billion people each month, in addition to contacts made by a billion users of smart phones with the Android operating system, the messages sent from the phone using the mail “Gmail” with more than 425 million users, along with information on the geographic location of the Android phones users and mapping service. “Google” credit card data for more than 200 million users of Android phones buy applications, and e-books from the Google store play.

If the user visited Internet sites without performing a search on “Google” the company can identify sites visited by users of its Web browser “Google chrome”, as well as record the addresses of millions of sites that contain parts of the blade “Google” like button “1” which allows the participation of content in Google plus “.
Google continues to gather data on its users in order to provide ads to their interests and develop their services such as “Google now personal assistant in the Android system. It can also bring new forms of data when you ask “Google glasses”, in addition to striving to own and operate infrastructure used to provide connectivity to the Internet in the United States and South Africa, among others.

Draw represents data collected by Google about a user of its services
However Google shows users aside from information collected about them by visiting the “Control Panel” and privacy settings, but these tools have a very small percentage of users. And users can prevent Google from providing ads based on data collected from browsing and using the company’s services.
Google was started three years ago at the request of Larry page, the company’s Chief Executive and one of its founders, the development of a simple tool for privacy in the form of index can move, and allows users to choose the degree to which they allow for Google to collect data on the use of the various services, they can choose between maximum and minimum and medium.
But Google abandoned the idea after many attempts and discussions, according to sources connected to the newspaper.

Allowing users to choose the maximum protection for their conflict with Google’s efforts to persuade more users to share their personal information in Google plus “.
The paper also drew to the openness of the Google executives to talk about the processing of data within the company, fearing that such discussions affect negatively on the company’s relationship with the users of their services. But that doesn’t stop growing internal discussions lately about privacy policies, partly because of some Governments, even checking that sometimes cause internal audits delays in the launch of some new products, engineering groups insist on privacy and the legal team to make some changes before the product launches for not benefiting, according to informed sources said.
While the company began work on the development of “Google now in 2011, delayed its launch to next year because the development team needed to get broad statements to allow for the collection of data by users of other products such as” Gmail “and” Google “search engine, also postponed the legal opinions of the development process for a few weeks, the team had to make sure that if a user deleted his post in Gmail will delete” Google now dependency as derived information.
