    Default How to stop or disable Google Privacy Reminder :(



    I'm fed up with this reminder from Google; both in Chrome and Firefox.
    Is there a permamently way to get rid of it once and for all?

    Is this a pop-up? Are we allowed to suggest an external or internal pop-up blocker? If not, delete this post.

    Sure, you can suggest a pop-up blocker to block pop-ups - but this is not a popup. Its a notification Google displays every time it updates it EULA whether you are logged into Google or not, so I am not sure if it will work.

    Hi japp,

    I see you are from Europe (Norway).
    I think the only way to do is to just ignore the message.
    Google says, they respect your privacy. ... But they don't.

    AFAIK, in the civil law of most (if not all, it is difficult to know), and in relation between buinesses on one hand and private individuals on the other, silence never ever may constitute a consent. (This is different in business relations between two business partners, where - under certain circumstances - silence may mean consent).

    So if you are a private individual, even if you use Google a 100, a 1000 or a million of times, plus Google registers all the (millions of) times you used their services and every time updates the EULA, this does not legally help google in court, as you did not give consent.
