Mail: Google announces new mail service. This is not an April Fool’s Day joke — just terrible timing. ;) It’s for real.
- Privacy: ‘we do not disclose your personally identifying information to third parties unless we believe we are required to do so by law or have a good faith belief that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to … (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues (including, without limitation, the filtering of spam)’. They’re going to build one hell of a spam-filtering corpus this way ;)
- A nice ToS clause: ‘Your Intellectual Property Rights. Google does not claim any ownership in any of the content, including any text, data, information, images, photographs, music, sound, video, or other material, that you upload, transmit or store in your Gmail account. We will not use any of your content for any purpose except to provide you with the Service.’
