Google has signed a formal undertaking to improve the information it provides about how it collects personal data.

The commitment follows an Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) investigation into the changes to the company’s privacy policy.

The ICO found that the search engine was too vague when describing how it uses personal data collected from its web services and products.
