Google told to fix privacy policy by EU data regulators

16 October 2012 Last updated at 12:27 BST

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.
