    I think they should also clarify what all comes under 'registration information'

    Name, phone number, Location, address .. ?

    They might seem the angel, but they aren't so much when they are reading your emails to provide you the appropriate advertisements on the side

    No free lunches ..

    And no company can claim not to be reading your emails .. data stored on their servers belongs to them also.

    you see big brother spying on your data is bad. Data getting in wrong hands is bad. Google using it for advertising is only relatively bad.
    Google is mostly automatic/syntactically reading your mail. There are no humans which read your mail.

    Yes but what's stopping Google from putting up flags for word matches like "bomb" "assassinate" "murder" etc ..
    Seems plausible US govt. would very keenly interested in getting such info.

    AFAIK US Patriot Act does facilitate such warrant-less search & tapping ..

    yeah, i mean ultimately any company has to comply with regulations. only way to bypass it is using encryption.
