If you find a confused hump, while reading the new policies, consider visiting this link. It is set up by google, which further simplifies the task. You can have a quick glimpse, of how Google handles your information.

The Google Terms of Service provided on the site are simple, but covers a wide range of topics about the rules to be followed, while using Google’s products. Along with it, Google clarifies what rights the user and Google have to use each others’ content. With this, Google attempts to make things more transparent and less questionable.

The policies fit in three pages, which will not take much of your time.

You make some searches for ‘home decors’ in Google Search. Next time, you surf YouTube, you might find suggested videos about interior designing and related stuffs. Previously, data manipulation in this manner was not a direct option for Google.
