Google's Privacy statement

It's a good idea to understand what information is held about you by search engines when you're searching online.  The information that is stored in cookies or in personalisation settings can impact the results that you see.  Two different people can carry out the exact same search but get very different results depending on their search history, geographic location and other settings.  Take a look at Google's privacy settings to understand what information is held about you and how this affects the results you see.  

Understand how Google captures and uses your information.  You have choices about the types of information that is collected and how you can manage your privacy in Google services.
Review key settings & the data Google uses to personalize your experience.
