Google to stop scanning emails...

Hi all...

If you haven't already seen it, here's a bit of good news on the privacy/data mining front.

Alphabet Inc's Google said on Friday it would stop scanning Gmail content for creating personalized ads from later this year, bringing the widely-used email service in line with its enterprise offering, G Suite.

Likely they already know all they need to know.

And you trust/believe them?
Actually, yes, I do. Google writes their TOS in understandable language and makes no secret of what they do; they spy with integrity, by Jove.
