Google told to fix privacy policy by EU data regulators

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.
