Are you guys doing something illegal that you'd get in trouble if the government found out like watch child porn or something?

I've read the new policiy and get this...
The only way to "opt-out" is to not login to ANY of their services!
Starting March 1, as soon as you login to any ONE of their services, you give them permission to get and use ALL your information from every Google service you use, from Gmail to Search (they have 70 services!).
Google owes every user a fully informed opt-in process, including a clear explanation of the downsides in everyday speak. That's why this petition was started on change.org...
"the company is saying precious little about behavioral scoring, a practice that someday could result in banks judging people's credit worthiness based on who they associate with online, or health insurance companies dropping people's coverage based on social media posts they make regarding their health."
If that possibility isn't scary I don't know what is.
The only way to protect yourself is to be informed and make your voice heard.
