The Information Commissioner’s Office said that Google had been “too vague” in explaining how it used personal data.
In 2012 Google combined around 70 separate privacy policies for different services into one mega document, but European regulators were not convinced the change was positive and launched an inquiry.
Now, in the UK at least, it looks like the long process has been concluded - and Google has avoided any form of fine of the kind that were handed-down in Italy and Spain.
The full list of changes and agreements can be read in full here.
Steve Eckersley, head of enforcement at the ICO, said:
"This investigation has identified some important learning points not only for Google, but also for all organisations operating online, particularly when they seek to combine and use data across services. It is vital that there is clear and effective information available to enable users to understand the implications of their data being combined. The detailed agreement Google has signed setting out its commitments will ensure that.”
