Google said on Tuesday it is revising its privacy policies and changing how it collects and uses data from users of its services to provide more personalised search results and advertisements.



The Mountain View, California-based company said it is combining more than 60 privacy policies for its various services such as Internet search, Gmail, Google+ and YouTube into a single policy that will take effect from March 1.

“We're rolling out a new main privacy policy that covers the majority of our products and explains what information we collect, and how we use it, in a much more readable way,” Alma Whitten, Google’s director of privacy, product and engineering, said in a blog post.
