To preserve a free and open web, digital advertising must put privacy front & center. That's why we’ve been working w/ the industry to build privacy-preserving tech and why we won’t be replacing 3P cookies w/ other identifiers that track you across the web

We build protections into every Google Account and the products you use every day. Now we’re working with others to help build a more privacy-centric web.

In the past year, “the first woman” was searched more than ever. For #WomensHistoryMonth, we’re celebrating the firsts and the many they inspire. See more firsts and learn about Google’s commitments to gender equality at #FirstOfMany

Today, we mourn the loss of Vernon Jordan, president of the National Urban League from 1971-1981. Mr. Jordan was one of our nation's greatest champions of racial & economic justice, and our organization would not be where it is today without him.

I'm deeply sorry to hear about the loss of Vernon Jordan, a tireless spirit who was a champion of the civil rights movement and an inspiration to all Americans. Here’s @googlearts’ profile of a great leader.

Thanks to @googleorg for helping launch , a privacy-protecting data platform that will let researchers from across the globe access data quickly and easily, maybe helping fight future epidemics.

We appreciate the recognition by the Australian Government of efforts by Google and news industry efforts to engage in commercial negotiations for News Showcase outside of the Code instead of requiring payment for links and snippets.

We’re grateful to the many people who engaged in the AU process to ensure the web remains a generative platform for creating and sharing information. We will continue to stand up for a free and open web that works the same way for everyone.

We have consistently asked that legislative proposals avoid breaking the web’s fundamental principle of it being free and easy to link to websites.

We’ve had programs in place for many years to make significant financial investments in the future of journalism. Google News Showcase builds on this work and more than 500 publications, including more than 70 in AU, have signed up.

.@Google and many others have consistently pointed out that the ability to link freely to other sites is at the heart of the architecture of the open web and of any search engine built upon it.

Following long-running discussions with publishers and the Australian Government on the News Media Bargaining Code, we now have a path forward that enables payments to be made to news publishers through Google News Showcase, instead of requiring payment for links.
