We added Google ads to a site the other day (you know, the ones that
deliver targeted content based on words used on the page and things
you click). It's now a Google requirement that our privacy policy had
to be changed to include this information.

So when in doubt...read the privacy policy to see if the site has
crossed that line for you.
