Google code jam registration - Just note something about privacy

By now you should all know that GCJ registration has begun. Which is great and I have already register.

But wait a second, the codejam is perhaps the google site that has the most private information about me. Will it be able to exchange this information with other services as the new privacy rules from google allow.

Good news everyone! It will!
