 The new privacy policy is rolling out around the world on 1 March
 

Internet company Google has gone ahead with its new privacy policy despite warnings from the EU that it might violate European law.

The change means private data collected by one Google service can be shared with its other platforms including YouTube, Gmail and Blogger.

 

Google said the new set up will enable it to tailor search results better.

 

But data regulators in France have cast doubt on the legality of move and have launched a Europe-wide investigation.

 

Google has merged 60 guidelines for its individual sites into a single policy for all of its services.

 

France's privacy watchdog CNIL wrote to Google earlier this week, urging for a "pause" in rolling out the revised policy.

 

"The CNIL and EU data authorities are deeply concerned about the combination of personal data across services," the regulator wrote.

 

"They have strong doubts about the lawfulness and fairness of such processing, and its compliance with European data protection legislation."
