Judge Says Google Must Do More To Disclose That It Intercepts, Scans Emails From Non-Gmail Users

Why is it okay for Google to intercept and scans emails from non-gmail users? It's not. How does Google propose to fix that? By letting you get the email first, THEN scanning it for marketing purposes. 😕

"Google recently tried to settle a class-action lawsuit with non-Gmail users who sued because their emails to Gmail users were being intercepted and scanned for the purposes of providing targeted advertising to the recipient. However, that settlement has been rejected by the judge in the case, who says it doesn’t go far enough in requiring proper disclosures from Google about this invasive practice."
