Google launched a privacy channel on YouTube Wednesday with videos explaining its privacy policies. The move comes on the eve of a two-day Federal Trade Commission-hosted town hall event on behavioral ad targeting to be held in Washington, D.C.
In a Google video titled “Google Search Privacy: Plain and Simple,” a Google support engineer draws on a whiteboard, explaining what type of information is collected by Google servers, such as IP address and cookie data, when you conduct a Google search.
“In future videos, we’ll talk about why Google keeps logs, what information we record when you’re signed into a Google account, and steps you can take to increase your privacy when surfing online,” a description under the video says.
