As part of its ongoing evaluation of Internet search privacy practices, Microsoft announced an important change in its data retention policy. Microsoft will delete the entire Internet Protocol address associated with search queries at six months rather than at 18 months. This new and significant step will be incorporated into Microsoft's existing privacy practices, which already provide strong protections for Bing users. Please read Peter Cullen's comments, Microsoft's Chief Privacy Strategist, on today's announcement.
