Google Google has updated its privacy policy - in fact, it has consolidated a mess of over 70 different privacy policies each covering an individual service into one, simpler policy. You'll now be treated as a single account, and data will be shared between Google services to make search results and ads more personalised (I assumed they already did that - makes sense).

Let me see:

Hushmail offers private, secure free email accounts. Email is encrypted and spam/virus scanned.

Sure, sure, but how do we know for sure? Dropbox also stated that the files were encrypted, but they were not. The only way to be sure is not to trust external services and have your own infrastructure.
