Google's first step in complying with the change to the law is an update to its Privacy Policy, which Google says will "make it easier to understand what information we collect" and the reason why it collects it. 

In a blog post, William Malcolm — director, privacy legal EMEA at Google — said the company had made several changes to the user experience of the policy, including improvements to its navigation and organisation, as well as introducing visual aids like videos and illustrations. 

GDPR's stipulation that companies must provide "clear and transparent notice" of how users' data is used.  " data-reactid="32">It's worth noting that absolutely nothing is changing in your settings or the kind of data Google collects on you. Google is just improving "user transparency" to comply with GDPR's stipulation that companies must provide "clear and transparent notice" of how users' data is used.

All we can say is: it's about time!
