I have grave concerns for the security of data in the so-called cloud as well as in phones and other stored services. I will not cover the reasons why, but it goes back to my Dad's tendency as a Lawyer/Barrister to be skeptical of almost everything. Anyway, in my circle I seem to be one of the few who read TOS and EULA fine print, so when IT Business Edge publish this on about April 24th this year:
???When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content."
It kind of piques my interest to say the least since my first question is "how wide spread is this clause in the cloud and other private, semi-private, and quasi-private storage areas?"
As they say, just because you are paranoid does not mean they are not out to get you.
My personal opinion is to over-protect personal data, especially when banks, Motor vehicle registries et al, sell your info on to third parties ( amongst many other groups)
