Google’s new privacy policy. What a joke!

After Google got in trouble for the way they handle privacy issues, they decided to change their cookie policy:

“In the coming months, Google will start issuing our users cookies that will be set to auto-expire after 2 years, while auto-renewing the cookies of active users during this time period. In other words, users who do not return to Google will have their cookies auto-expire after 2 years. Regular Google users will have their cookies auto-renew, so that their preferences are not lost. And, as always, all users will still be able to control their cookies at any time via their browsers. ”

This means, that every time you visit Google, your cookies will be stored for another 2 years. Is there anybody out there that doesn’t visit Google within 2 years?

I think this is one of the biggest jokes in Google’s history.
