Google updates its privacy policy for the age of AI web scraping

Google updated its privacy policy, stating it reserves the right to scrape the internet for data to build its AI toolssuch as Google Translate, Bard, and Cloud AI capabilities.

The practice goes beyond traditional policies covering the company’s use of data posted on its services and extends to all public internet content. This approach could lead to legal battles over copyright, as courts may have to address issues surrounding AI scraping. Twitter and Reddit have taken steps to protect intellectual property by limiting third-party access to their APIs.

Google uses information to improve our services and to develop new products, features and technologies that benefit our users and the public. For example, we use publicly available information to help train Google’s AI models and build products and features like Google Translate, Bard, and Cloud AI capabilities.
