Dr. Alma Whitten, Google's lead privacy engineer, alongside representatives from Apple, AT & T, and Facebook addressing at a Senate Commerce Committee hearing. "Alma's testimony focus on how we put our privacy principles into practice. She talk about products like Google Dashboard (a one-stop, easy-to-use control panel for the information store with Google accounts and products) and Ads Preferences Manager (which allows users to edit categories used to serve them interest-based ads, or opt out altogether) These're examples of how we've developed privacy tools by focusing on transparency, user control, and security," stated Google.
