Google Cloud will as a data processor, and as a data processor Google process data only as instructed by you-our customers. The company will also email all Google account holders individually to explain the policy, said Malcolm.

Although the information in the privacy policy is now easier-than-ever to follow, Google wants to make it clear that "nothing is changing about your current settings or how your information is processed". The company goes on to say that as well as text, its policy now includes illustrations and videos to help to better convey information to people.

Over the last decade, Google has built a strong global privacy compliance program, taking advice from regulators around the world.

With "Activity Controls", users can choose what activity is saved to their Google Account.

Business users will be happy to learn that Google's Download Your Data tool is improving and expanding. You'll continue to have granular control over the data you share with us when you use our services, but with clearer explanations.

"Manage or mute the ads you see on Google, on websites and in apps using the recently upgraded "Ads Settings" tool and "Mute This Ad control", Malcolm said.

The company has also improved its data portability to comply with the GDPR, meaning direct service-to-service data transfers will be possible where feasible, for example from Google Photos to another photo service. According to the release, Google has a contractual commitment to notify customers on data incidents. To support this, Google launched the Data Transfer Project on GitHub, which offers early-stage open source code that will soon be available for any developer to use.

Google announced today that Google Cloud Platform is ready for the GDPR.

These changes come at a time where awareness on privacy issues are higher than usual with scandals such as the Cambridge Analytica data breach affecting Facebook users worldwide.

As mentioned, Google has rolled out the new privacy policy to comply with GDPR, not out of the kindness of its "don't be evil" heart.
