Are you a Google Ad? – Protect your privacy and make sure you opt out

In case you missed it, last November Google updated its terms of service, allowing the company to use your profile information in ads. Meaning that your name, picture and personal details are being spread throughout your network (unless you have already opted out).  

Facebook learnt the hard way that  there are lots of people who don’t like their face and name to show up in ads, and paid out a few Quid to some disgruntled users that took them to court.  

Google have tried to make the move by being more communicative, but if you did miss it – don’t panic! You can opt out right here all you have to do is scroll to the bottom of the page and uncheck the box.
