Google‘s new privacy policy has gone live today i.e. March 1, 2012. This is supposed to replace 70 different policies that currently govern different Google products.

The new policy is said to be more simple and easy to follow and understand. Google is trying to unify the user experience across its products mainly the most popular one YouTube, Gmail and search. This will bring more consistency to user experience no matter on which Google platform you are. The search result accuracy could go up based on data Google collects on each user understanding your needs.

Based on the principle of ‘One Policy, One Google Experience’, the company has taken a leap to simplify processes giving user experience a priority. You can learn more about it here.
