Microsoft's video - which was seen last year, though not hosted on the company's own YouTube account - suggests Google is in effect reading your email and using that information for promotions. On the contrary, "no one reads your email but you" Google insists."Like most major email providers," the company says "our computers scan messages to get rid of spam and malware, as well as show ads that are relevant to you."
Google deputy general counsel Mike Yang and public policy director Pablo Chavez will appear in a private meeting with the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade this week, USA Today reports. The pair will be expected to comment on one of the key concerns the Subcommittee has, that "Google will not permit users to opt out of this information collection and sharing across platforms and devices."
