Google plans to update its privacy policy within the next few weeks in an effort to cut down on legal jargon.

The changes, scheduled to come into effect on 3 October, are aimed at making the policy easier to understand for users, according to the search company's associate general counsel Mike Yang.

"We're simplifying and updating Google's privacy policies," Yang wrote in a post on Google's official blog on Friday. "To be clear, we aren't changing any of our privacy practices; we want to make our policies more transparent and understandable."
