Is anyone changing their internet routines due to Google's new policies that start tomorrow?  I just switched my search engine to Bing, but I have Gmail so I'm still attached to Google.

I guess I'd have to actually READ their new policies to make a decision. I know it keeps prompting me to do so, but I just haven't had time.

I've read it and I still don't know what their saying. 

I saw an article yesterday that said the new policy violates EU standards.  http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory/french-regulator-warns-google-privacy-policy-15807618#.T05tZRyWFc0   (And they say that Google's explanation of how it will use the data was too difficult to understand "even for trained privacy professionals."   

Guess I'm not alone! Tongue

Google privacy policy changes March 1: How to clear your search history, account information

See if this helps.  One of the easiest ways to keep them from tracking you is not to sign in to use anything unless you have to, then sign out again right away.

So, yeah, I only log in to get my email and then right back out. I'm never logged in when I'm doing a search. So, I guess I'll be fine. This can't possibly be any worse than Facebook.
