Google Books’ve addressed some questions about privacy and proposed settlement agreement with authors and publishers, which’s still subject to approval by the court. “What’s Google going to do to ensure reader privacy if the settlement is approved? Important principles from our Google Privacy Policy would apply to this service, as with every Google service. For example, we’ll never sell personal information about our users. In fact, we’ll never share individual users' information at all unless the user tells us to, or in some very unusual circumstances like life-threatening emergencies. The Book Rights Registry created under the settlement won't have access to users' personal information, either. Users’ll also have choices about the kinds of information that Google receives when they use the service,” Google Books
