Google told to fix privacy policy

Former European Union commissioner and director of Microsoft-funded lobby group Icomp Auke Haagsma on the EU's call for Google to revise its privacy policy.

EU watchdogs have said Google must revise its privacy policy.

It follows the firm's decision in March to consolidate 60 separate privacy policies into a single agreement.

The move allowed it to pool data from across its products, including use of its video site YouTube, social network Google+ and smartphone system Android - potentially helping it target adverts.

Privacy expert and former European Union commissioner Auke Haagsma - who is now director of the Microsoft-funded lobby group Icomp - gave his response to the move.
