Google said it interpreted the law differently.Google resisted doing so in part because every bit counts when determining how quickly its home page loads, given that load speed and user satisfaction are strongly related. The company probably also wanted to avoid giving outsiders the idea that they can force design changes by complaining.
In a blog post, Marissa Mayer, VP of search products and user experience, said that Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin would agree to the change only if the number of the words on the home page (28) remained unchanged. So the word "Google" was dropped because it was implied.
"Today we're making a homepage change by adding a link to our privacy overview and policies," said Mayer. "Google values our users' privacy first and foremost. Trust is the basis of everything we do, so we want you to be familiar and comfortable with the integrity and care we give your personal data. We added this link both to our homepage and to our results page to make it easier for you to find information about our privacy principles."
