Daily Dashboard | Op-ed: A history of the internet's growth found in Google's privacy policy Related reading: Notes from the IAPP Europe, 14 Aug. 2020


In an op-ed for The New York Times’ Privacy Project, Charlie Warzel and Ash Ngu write how the transformation of Google's privacy policy over the last 20 years draws a parallel to the evolution of the internet. "It was short and earnest, a quaint artifact of a different time in Silicon Valley, when Google offered 600 words to explain how it was collecting and using personal information," Warzel and Ngu write regarding Google's policy in 1999. "That version of the internet (and Google) is gone. Over the past 20 years, that same privacy policy has been rewritten into a sprawling 4,000-word explanation of the company’s data practices." The writers go on to discuss how Google's policy has changed based on its growing business, need for data and recent calls to meet regulation. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
