The UK Information Commissioner’s Office is making similar investigation on other firms in Europe.
The European Article 29 Data Protection Working Party has also joined the other data regulators in the investigation of Google privacy policies.
Google said that the changes will provide clear-cut and complete information regarding data processing, which will include an exhaustive list of the types of data processed by Google and the reason for processing the particular data.
Google will have to clarify who will be collecting the “anonymous identifiers” and the purpose of collecting such data.
Google will have to ensure that the passive users, who use Google without signing in should be given more information about the processing of their data.
The regulator has given time till 30th June 2015 for Google to make changes in the policy and according to reports Google will bring out a common policy for all the countries in the European Union to satisfy the regulators who had conducted the investigations
The appeals made by Google against the investigations conducted by the Spanish and French watchdogs have been dropped.
The head of enforcement of ICO’s, Steve Eckersley, said that the undertaking made by Google to change the policies is a major step forward after a long term investigation and extensive dialogue.
