Google to Supplement Its Privacy Policy After Korea's Regulatory Probe

Google has reportedly agreed to supplement its new privacy policy in order to alleviate concerns of the South Korea's communications watchdog.

The Korea Communications Commission (KCC) said Google would "take steps to better notify users on processing information gathered via its search engines and other Internet accounts, as well as give freedom to restrict data collection."

According to the plan agreed, Google will "better inform domestic Internet users on how it will use their data and provide links to its existing services to allow them to control the information they share."

Google plans to would supplement its new rules but not change them.

The KCC said that Google is expected to explain what supplements it will make on its Web site on March 15.

Google's new privacy policy went into effect worldwide on March 1 and calls for consolidating the numerous guidelines set for people using such services as Gmail, YouTube and social networks into a single rule. Google said that the new policy could allow it to better pool the data it can collect so as to customize and improve services.

Google is facing similar requests by the European Union and has received warnings from advocacy groups in Japan.
