Even though European regulators want it changed, Google’s existing solitude policy is essential for the company to be able to generate new products that recognize more about Google users, Larry Page, the company’s chief executive, said Tuesday. “Almost everything that we want to do, I think, is rather at odds with locking downward all of your in sequence for uses you haven’t consider yet,” Mr. Page said. “That’s incredible I worry about.”
Mr. Page spoke at Google’s annual Zeitgeist sales discussion in Paradise Valley, Ariz., the same day that European solitude regulators sent him a letter requesting that Google make important changes to its isolation policy or risk fines or other penalties. He said he was “sad” that regulators have tried to limit convinced types of online data compilation, when nobody knows how the Internet will purpose in a decade.
The policy under deliberation, which was announced in January and took consequence in March, says that for people logged in to a Google account, Google can use information communal on one overhaul in other Google services. For example, Google might show people an ad on YouTube based on what they have investigate for in the search engine, or accurate the spelling of a friend’s name in a Google search based on information gleaned from Gmail.
Mr. Page said that current Google products would not be probable without the strategy. His example was a new creation for Android called Google Now, which can do things like alert you that you need to leave to keep away from being late for a assembly based on information from your calendar, your phone’s current position and traffic conditions.
