eWeek reports on Google's Screenwise program, which offers to pay Chrome users ages 13 and older up to $25 in gift card codes if they install a browser extension to share data about websites they visit with the company. "What we learn from you, and others like you, will help us improve Google products and services and make a better online experience for everyone," Google wrote. The report notes that amidst recent concerns about changes to its privacy policies, Google has noted that it "will not save your e-mail address or associate it with any other personally identifiable information."
