Things Google knows about you

Ever wondered what Google actually knows about you?

– Everything you search for using Google
– Every web page you visit that has Google Adsense ads on it
– Which country you’re in
– Every Blogger page you visit, and the referring page

If you have an Adsense account
– Your full name, address and bank account details
– The IP address of everyone who visits your pages with Adsense ads on them
– The number of visitors to each of your pages with Adsense ads on them

If you use a GMail account
– Who you send emails to
– Who sends emails to you
– The contents of those emails
– The contents of all emails received from any mailing lists of which you are a member, even if they are private mailing lists.

Even if you don’t use a GMail account
– The contents of any emails you send to anyone who does use a GMail account
– The contents of any emails you send to any mailing lists of which any one member uses a GMail account

If you’re a member of Orkut
– Your online social network, interests and groups

Pretty scary, huh?
I actually use all of the above Google services 😛
Oh well, I don’t care, I’ve got nothing to hide.
