Just couple of hours after the Google launched its new web browser Chrome, privacy advocates have started raising their voice against the unfriendly End User License Agreement (EULA) linked with it.
The agreement apparently breaches its user’s privacy, by providing the company the an outright license to share, modify, publish, translate, whatever the users share with the browser, that too without asking for the permission or paying any sort of royalty.
The language of the content published from Google, visibly allows the company to encroach into its users’ lives, by using whatever copyrighted content being placed on its browser.
Surprisingly, the company defended this by saying that it has borrowed the language from several other products, so as to make it simpler for its users.
Reacting to the statements of privacy advocates, Rebecca Ward, senior official from Chrome said in a statement, “We are working quickly to remove language from section 11 of the current Google Chrome terms of service”, and stated that the changes will also be available to the users, who have already downloaded the browser.
