Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Change Privacy Policies

Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft have all recently changed their privacy policies due pressure from certain groups, not the least of which is the European Union, which is, among other activities, scrutinizing the possible merger of Google and Doubleclick.

Among the changes:

Yahoo - all search log data will be anonymous after 13 months.

Microsoft - all user search data anonymous after 18 months.

Google - data stored about end users in its server logs anonymous after 18 months.
