Google Inc. will enforce a ‘comprehensive privacy program,’ and will go through the 20 years’ audits prepared by an independent professional, as part of a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), says a report.
The agreement was for settling the allegations regarding Google’s misleading methods and violated commitments that it made to its user’s, while stepping into the world of social networking through its Buzz social network, last year.
Google apologized for its mistakes
Jon Leibowitz, FTC Chairman said that a company should honor its words, while making privacy pledges.
This settlement ascertains that Google will remain committed to its users, and establish substantial privacy protections into all of its operations, says Jon.
