Since not many of us own private email servers sitting in our basements, we tend to turn to alternatives from providers such as Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, and etc., and while we don’t really think too much about it, technically these companies could always intercept and read our emails if they choose to but unfortunately that’s what made the Consumer Watchdog a little unhappy, especially with a statement Google made back on the 13th of July 2013 with regards to privacy concerns. According to Google, “a person has no legitimate expectation of privacy in information he voluntarily turns over to third parties.”
Technically Google does make a point, although the way they worded it does make one a little concerned, but what do you guys think? Was this something you’ve always known and accepted, albeit begrudgingly, or did this come as a complete surprise?
