As for your data falling into the wrong hands, Google has shown that it will do what it takes to stay ahead. In China, that means caving into the government's version of reality. In the US, that means saying the big bad government can't have our (if you are American) search data. As an American, I guess that means I am safe (at least until public sentiment no longer favors privacy - which may never happen). "Do no evil" may be their motto, but that is certainly open to interpretation. Google makes me nervous.
