Reading my favourite Austrian newspaper this morning I came across a very interesting new Google Service. “Google Dashboard” is a service, that not only allows you to check out what data Google has recorded about you (pretty much everything you do/did while being logged in at Google, Gmail, YouTube, etc.), but at the same site offers you links to the relevant privacy settings page of each of Google’s products(!). To be honest, I think that’s almost too good to be true. (Just compare that to how Austrian companies are actually complying with the “Right of Information” granted by section 26 of the Austrian Data Protection Act- DSG 2000)
However it is not possible to possible to actually delete stored information through this application and Ott mentions that there are some services, as e.g. the Google Toolbar, which are not listed in the Dashboard.
Anyway, check it out yourself by clicking here or watch the video first.
