New privacy policy on Google

On March, 2012, Google is changing its privacy policy.

All the information about you on all your Google profiles will be aggregated in order to create a unique experience through each Google platform. This will “improve” each one’s experience with Google Ads, as well.

Is there any way to avoid it? Apparently, just one:

Users won’t be able to opt out. If they don’t like the change, Google has said, they can avoid signing into their accounts or stop using Google products altogether.

You can check your Ads Preferences on this page and your Web History here. It’s a lot of stuff Google knows about you and it’s used to tailor the advertising messages for you.

How can we try and protect our privacy then? Here’s some advice from Forbes.
