Google wants to know what we’re doing online

It says that Google and other websites are bound to hand over user data when requested by governments under certain circumstances. Most such requests are made for criminal investigations, and under a court order. As Google notes, however, “there are likely a small number of requests that fall outside of this category” and it “can’t be certain” that all government requests are related to suspected criminal activities.

It shows that the U.S. government sent 7,969 requests for user data between January and June. India came in second with 2,319 requests, followed by Brazil, France, Germany and the U.K

As privacy concerns about the company grow, Google has made a more public show of being open about its interactions and policies.
