And while Google doesn’t record until users say phrases like “Hey, Google” or “OK, Google,” the devices sometimes mishear other words or phrases and record conversations they aren’t meant to listen in on.
Some of these conversations end up being transcribed by “language experts” hired by the company.
The practice, and the fact that Google’s devices sometimes mistakenly record audio, raises plenty of privacy concerns.
According to Wired , experts say Google is violating European Union privacy rules, which protect sensitive data like medical information and require transparency about how personal data is collected and processed.
A Google spokesperson told Wired that the company will review how it clarifies its use of user data.
Chances are the only thing that will change is how transparent companies are about what they do with your data.

As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
