The article reports on the decision of Google to reduce the data retention time from 18 to nine months in an effort to improve users' privacy. The retention time for online whereabouts, or Internet Protocol (IP) addresses will be store stored for nine months in the search engine. Such move comes in response to the pressure from European regulators, urging search engines to delete data collected about their users after six months.
