"You have been a leader in the fight to protect Californians' privacy, a right that is enshrined in our State Constitution," wrote John M. Simpson, Consumer Watchdog's Privacy Project director, in a letter today to the attorney general.
"We ask that you continue this fight and take strong action against Google on both of these threats to our privacy."

"Leaving out such an important point is in essence lying by omission. It is a fundamentally deceptive explanation of what Google is doing with our data and why it is doing it."
Google gives this explanation of why it gathers users data:
"We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Google and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content - like giving you more relevant search results and ads."
