Google said a year ago it would stop its computers from scanning the inboxes of Gmail users for information to personalize advertisements, saying it wanted users to “remain confident that Google will keep privacy and security paramount.”

Wait for it...

But the internet giant continues to let hundreds of outside software developers scan the inboxes of millions of Gmail users who signed up for email-based services offering shopping price comparisons, automated travel-itinerary planners or other tools. Google does little to police those developers, who train their computers—and, in some cases, employees—to read their users’ emails, a Wall Street Journal examination has found.

I am shocked, shocked.

Google, a unit of Alphabet Inc., GOOGL 1.14%▲ says it only provides data to outside developers it has vetted and to whom users have explicitly granted permission to access email.

"Or have we now found angels in the form of men to govern us?"

Google’s own employees only read emails “in very specific cases where you ask us to and give consent, or where we need to for security purposes, such as investigating a bug or abuse,” the company said in a written statement.

"You lie!"

Google’s developer agreement prohibits exposing a user’s private data to anyone else “without explicit opt-in consent from that user.” Its rules also bar app developers from making permanent copies of user data and storing them in a database.

Developers say Google does little to enforce those policies.

Same as it ever was.

Say a leftist SJW Goggle subcontractor employee is merrily reading the private emails of random Americans, and comes across an email from someone saying, "Yeehaw! I'm a redneck Trump voter!" What is stopping that SJW employee from secretly forwarding that email and the guy's personal info to his SJW friends so they can "doxx" and harass him?

Nothing. Nothing is stopping him. That;'s what worries me. I think this happens all the time.
