I’m travelling this week, but word reached me this afternoon that Google has issued a new privacy policy, according to AP.

I haven’t had a chance to review the document in detail, but the commentators are already suggesting that it’s just as vague as it was before on many key issues.

Most of Google’s privacy issues boil down to questions about precisely what information they are collecting about you, how they’re going to use it, and what ability do you have to exercise any control over what they’re doing.

If the new privacy policy doesn’t give concrete answers to these questions, then it’s probably not an improvement.
