Every bit of data that touches your Google account (including your private data on Gmail and Docs) is freely available to Google and those they work with for them to use, host, store, reproduce, modify and to create derivative works with.
@hund Glad I could help. :D
I got it from the book "Essentialism" by Greg McKeown. I think that you would like it and until now I also can recommend it.
@hund You sure had your reasons for thinking so. In the end we have to try things out to be really sure.
But if the disappointments are happening too often you could try making a decision upfront, I recently heard of. If that thing you are interesting of is a "Hell, yeah!", go on. If not, it is a clear "No".
@hund Haha, I don't think so. For me the benefits aren't that great in comparison to the costs.
@hund Haha, what the hell. :D

Here's another reason I don't like and don't use phone number based services like WhatsApp and Signal.

@hund I noticed a redundant "that" in the first sentence in your article. Might want to check that out.
