Privacy Concerns – Google Mail (Gmail)

Can you spot what google goes through in this email sent using Gmail?

Email Gmail Snooping

Its easy they read everything, email between a husband and wife or two best friends should be completely private but Google crosses the line. They scan everything including every word in every email sent or received using the Gmail service.

Google then sell adds based upon your most personal messages even about your relationships, healthcare decisions, financial decisions, your children and other matters. The worst thing is theres no way to opt out of this invasion of your privacy.

Give it a try open an email from your bank for example and look at the sponsored adverts that litter the screen, you will notice they are offering financial advice or loans.

Googles Executive chairman Eric E. Schmidt was recently asked for his view on the matter:

There’s this thing I call the creepy line and the Google policy about a lot of these things is to get right up to the creepy line but not cross it.

Personally I don’t use google for anything other than webmaster tools but its scary to think how much data they collect from your emails.

Even if you don’t use Gmail, Google will still go through emails you send to Gmail addresses in order to sell ads — despite you never having agreed to their terms of service. There is absolutely no way to opt out, whether you use Gmail or not.

It’s time to take back your privacy.

Sign this petition and tell Google to stop going through your emails to sell ads.
