Google now only keeps your data for 9 months

Posted on Wednesday, September 10 2008 @ 08:06:19 CEST by

Google decided it will now store your IP addresses on its server logs for only 9 months before anonymizing them. Before the search engine's policy was to keep the date for 18 months but privacy advocates and some institutions weren't too happy about that.
A European Commission advisory body issued an opinion paper earlier this year urging search engines to delete data collected about their users after six months.

At the time, Google said the proposals could have an impact on its ability "to provide quality products and services for users, like accurate search results, as well as system security and integrity concerns."

Google filed a response to EU regulators (PDF) on Monday, saying in a blog post that "after months of work, our engineers developed methods for preserving more of the data's utility while also anonymizing IP addresses sooner."
