Google reacts to privacy concerns

September 04, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Google Inc. has agreed to draw up a separate privacy policy for its digital library in response to a request from the Federal Trade Commission.

The FTC emphasized Thursday that it would closely monitor how Google protects readers' privacy.
