Instructions
Answer the following questions. All questions carry equal weight (5% of all assessments in this subject).
Consider the following scenario:
Google Inc., perhaps the most well-known search engine company in the world, also owns and/or operates several subsidiary services and Web-based applications. These include, Gmail, Google Maps, Google+, Google Calendar, Google Chrome, Picasa, AdSense/Adwords, and so forth. In the past, each had its own privacy policy. In 2012, however, Google replaced the individual policies with one comprehensive privacy policy across all of its services. When it implemented this change, Google also announced that the company would share user account data across all its services. Critics note that a user’s search engine history could be shared with YouTube, or vice versa, and that a user’s Google+ account data might be shared with Adwords to generate more targeted advertising.
