5 Types of Data That Google Might Be Collecting from You

When you sign up to use Google’s free email service (Gmail), you fill out an account registration page. The registration page asks for personal information like your name, age (birthday), where you live, an alternative email address, and phone number.

However, besides your name, the rest of the information you give doesn’t have to match your real identity (because Google doesn’t...
