Yesterday Google updated its privacy policies with a very elaborate expansion on how it is, among other things, analysing all your content including messages on its Gmail service.
Although Google gladly tells you that they do not own whatever content you entrust with them, they have the liberty to do a lot with it. Sadly this privilege that we award them when most of us “blindly” accept the terms and conditions of their service allows them to peer into emails which should in theory be private messages.
Perhaps the consolation that this “content analysis” is not conducted by humans should be enough to dismiss concerns of privacy, but we cannot forget that what was meant for one recipient should always stay private. The sensation caused by the revelations made by Snowden on privacy invasion goes to shows how sensitive this issue is.
