We heard from Peter Fleischer, the Chief Privacy Officer for search company Google, on Friday.

Speaking in French, he touched upon how Google faced different expectations to protect personal information and privacy from consumers and advocates in different countries and jurisdictions around the world.

As could be expected, he also argued for the creation of global privacy standards. Mr. Fleischer also emphasized that some data needs to be retained in order to personalize the services offered by Google and other online applications – and emphasized that users find the personalization of services extremely valuable and convenient.

The video is divided into two parts, and is only available in French. Sorry.
