Google Cloud is ready for the GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - which the European Union said aims "to protect all [its] citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world" - will come into force on May 25.

The search giant essentially admitted what you've suspected all along, that privacy policies are too complicated to just explain with words.

Users will also be able to view or delete any data collected, including search and location history, from Google services using My Activity.

"We've explained our practices in more detail and with clearer language and added more detail about the options you have to manage, export and delete data from our services".

Such verifications are relevant because data controllers and processors are responsible ("principle of accountability") for implementing - both at the time the means used for processing are determined and at the time of the processing itself - appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure an effective level of protection of the processed personal data (known as "data protection by design and by default").

It's also worth heading over to the Activity Controls section to review and manage the activity data Google is saving with your account.

Alan Shearer: 'No-brainer' for Steven Gerrard to take Rangers job
Gerrard has reportedly held talks with the Scottish club about becoming their new manager, and more talks are expected this week. He has been heavily backed to take up the role and use his vast experience throughout the game to perform well as a manager.

Additionally, Google said that it is making it easier to port your Google data to other services, for example to transfer photos from Google Photos to other online photo repositories.

Gordon Hockey, the PSNC's director of operations and support, said: "It appears that the UK's Data Protection Act 2018 is likely to deem all community pharmacies to be public authorities (even though they are not)". According to the release, Google has a contractual commitment to notify customers on data incidents.

"As we evolve our products over time, we'll continue to improve our Privacy Program and the protections we offer to users", the post stated.

The GDPR places new obligations on Google, but also on any business providing services to people in the EU. Our ambition is to have the highest possible standards of data security and privacy, and to put our users and partners in control.

Google updates include improving user transparency and controls, and strengthening privacy compliance.
