EU Wants Google to Delay Privacy Change Rollout

PCMag: Google had planned to roll out a new simplified, unified privacy policy for many of its services on March 1, but the EU wants the company to wait. In a letter, the EU’s data protection agency wrote, “Given the wide range of services you offer, and popularity of these services, changes in your privacy policy may affect many citizens in most or all of the EU member states.” The group wants to “check the possible consequences for the protection of the personal data of these citizens,” and it asked Google “for a pause in the interests of ensuring that there can be no misunderstanding about Google’s commitments to information rights of their users and EU citizens, until we have completed our analysis.”

Some U.S. lawmakers have also expressed concern about Google’s new privacy policy.
