Microsoft and Google are teaming up to introduce a new policy on sharing data in the future, according to a new report.
The two tech giants announced the changes at a conference on Monday in New York.
The plan is aimed at making it easier for companies to share data in cases where they can’t control it.
The companies say the move is aimed to better protect the privacy of their users and businesses.
The policy will be available to companies that provide online services and products to the public and to third parties, according the news release.
The guidelines are not set to go into effect until at least February.
The privacy of individuals online will continue to be a central concern for governments, and the two companies are working to find a way to share personal data securely and efficiently, Microsoft said in the release.
“The new policy will provide an easy way for companies that are currently not sharing their data with the public to make sure that users are able to make the most of the information they share online,” Microsoft said.
Google also said the new privacy guidelines are aimed at helping businesses make sure their information is available in cases when they cannot control how it is shared.
The company said the company’s policies are currently tailored to businesses that share data with their users.
Google has said it’s going to be working with other tech companies and governments to develop a system that can protect users’ personal information.
