Nowadays, I believe the only trustable big corps are Apple and Microsoft.
Think about it.
Microsoft has tons of Business and government customers paying for the services and making sure the data aren't used in dodgy ways plus there are tons of lawyers ready to sue MS for such abuse.
But looks like Google has the right to scrape everything that it stores!
Aside from feeling violated, it’s a time like this when you woefully remember: you’re the product.
Didn't read that ol' ToS, eh?
“The activity information we collect may include: .. “purchase activity”
I think its complete BS but it’s the world we live in.
What irritates me the most is that they're bad at it. I'm using Google Pay for most of my purchases, send all my purchase mails to Gmail... But so much is missing. Being evil is one thing, but being bad at being evil is inexcusable in their position.
So, I have to delete my email in order for my purchase history to be removed -- from Google’s servers? I'm not sure it will be removed either way -- It probably won't.
Holy cheese balls this is creepy and annoying.
On the bright side, now I have a list of my purchases.
If you’re a Gmail user, you can check your purchases history here.
