Okay maybe you aren’t the CEO of a powerful global company, or one of the richest people on the planet. Within reason you still have a right to privacy.
Sad to say however that if you are a Google customer you might not get to enjoy the privacy you would have hoped for.
This is another reason why you should pay for your own e-mail hosting. You have privacy and control over what goes on with your domain and your e-mail.
This is the problem you will run into possibly with any free e-mail providers. They have to pay the bills somehow and so some of them will resort to gathering data about you and selling it to marketers for a price.
With a paid hosting provider you know you are dealing with someone that has a solid plan that doesn’t involve invading your life and spying on you.
