Google Official Blog: “..January 28, is Data Privacy Day, when the world recognizes the importance of preserving your online privacy and security. If its like most other days, Googlelike many companies that provide online services to userswill receive dozens of letters, faxes and emails from government agencies and courts around the world requesting access to our users private account information. Typically this happens in connection with government investigations. Its important for law enforcement agencies to pursue illegal activity and keep the public safe. Were a law-abiding company, and we dont want our services to be used in harmful ways. But its just as important that laws protect you against overly broad requests for your personal information…Today, for example, weve added a new section to our Transparency Report that answers many questions you might have. And last week we released data showing that government requests continue to rise, along with additional details on the U.S. legal processessuch as subpoenas, court orders and warrantsthat governments use to compel us to provide this information.”
