Google is tracking all your purchases that you make with your Gmail account. You can see the history here:

https://myaccount.google.com/purchases

No easy way to stop them from doing this besides to stop using Gmail.

They're not very good at it then as I buy too much shit off Amazon and a few other places and that page says I have no purchases.

Are you seeing Amazon there?

Might be a difference between a US citizen (no GDPR) and someone resident in the EU?

Could also be that if you deleted the order confirmation email associated with the purchase, it will no longer show up in this list?

This is more of an opportunity than anything else.

If Bing doesn't do this they'll get market share. Or Duckduckgo, Trustnav, etc

Google just deplatformed Huawei off of Android and they are working with the PRC on a search engine. If they will do that then could there be a possible future where they start threatening hosting sites if they host websites like Roosh?

Say you cant use google in your services if you dont remove certain sites?

I'd expect China to do that and host sites that are "subversive" to Western governments. It is generally in their interest to foment unrest here.

It also records your phone records, the sites you visit, youtube searches, youtube views, questions asked to your phone, your exact locations/places visited/time there/method of transport, apps used on your phone, and lots more.

Check the link Roosh posted. https://myaccount.google.com/activitycontrols then manage activity under any of the headings.

I suspect many here, myself included are guilty of 'wrongthink'... and here nicely stored is the evidence.

If an evil dictator ever rises to power in the United States, the first thing he'll do is take over Google and use their information to neutralize potential rebels. This is likely already happening.

Trust Reds? They would be a few bribes away from handing over the information needed and they work with Western powers behind the scenes.

Google is essentially a law enforcement agency. They don't fight or protest subpoenas.

The warrants, which draw on an enormous Google database employees call Sensorvault, turn the business of tracking cellphone users’ locations into a digital dragnet for law enforcement. In an era of ubiquitous data gathering by tech companies, it is just the latest example of how personal information — where you go, who your friends are, what you read, eat and watch, and when you do it — is being used for purposes many people never expected. As privacy concerns have mounted among consumers, policymakers and regulators, tech companies have come under intensifying scrutiny over their data collection practices.

This isn't new. Google was developed by the US Gov't.

They rec'd 2 large grants to develop their capabilities - 1 for query optimization; and the other (of which they don't own up to) - as a data collection/management agency. Here is the call for it: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/mail.cypherpunks/4CDiW59hS88

https://qz.com/1145669/googles-true...nd-nsa-research-grants-for-mass-surveillance/ .

The grant can be seen here: http://db.cs.pitt.edu/idm/reports/2000/9631952.html --(Amazon also rec'd money from this grant and currently host CIA servers). Here is the other grant: https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=9411306

This money came from the CIA and NSA, funneled through a VC started by the CIA -- https://medium.com/insurge-intelligence/how-the-cia-made-google-e836451a959e (interestingly, Medium is owned by Google). A long read by I recommend at least the 1st page.

I highly recommend people leave the Google platform as much as they can, esp in terms of search (DuckDuckGo is a good alternative) and their Browser(Brave).

More interesting social media trivia. The Pentagon had a project called LifeLog which "aimed to gather in a single place just about everything an individual says, sees or does: the phone calls made, the TV shows watched, the magazines read, the plane tickets bought, the e-mail sent and received ... the all-encompassing diary could have turned into a near-perfect digital memory, giving its users computerized assistants with an almost flawless recall of what they had done in the past". https://www.wired.com/2004/02/pentagon-kills-lifelog-project/ The date of this article is February 4, 2004. Facebook was founded February 4, 2004.

In ten years, the concept of privacy or internet anonymity will appear quaint. This speaks to the need to make one's self anti-fragile, so that you can espouse unpopular truths without risking your livelihood. Because that's how they'll seek to control you - as totalitarians in the Soviet Union and every totalitarian state has always sought to control people: access to resources. Quite literally, totalitarian regimes from eastern Europe to Venezuela to Africa to China have starved their political opponents as a warning to others.

The only way around a new dark age and several hundred wasted years of human suffering is for a logic-minded and fair-minded group of men to to find a way to subsist while still being able to thumb their nose at RightThink. This is why people like Heartiste are so very important: The ability to mock effectively shines the light of truth on absurdity. The ability to mock is the ability to destroy.

Google Can't Dodge Class Action Alleging Bias Against Conservative Job Applicants.

Court Rules in Favor of Class of Discriminated Google Applicants.

On June 7, 2019, the Santa Clara County Superior Court held a hearing in which he ruled in favor of the class of Google applicants who were discriminated against on the basis of their political viewpoint, gender, and race. The court denied Google’s two motions—(1) a Demurrer to or Motion to Strike Class Allegations; and (2) a Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings—attacking portions of Plaintiffs’ claims.

Plaintiffs’ case will now move forward, with discovery on the issues alleged in the lawsuit regarding Google’s alleged unlawful employment practices and refusal to hire individuals on the basis of their protected characteristics under California employment law.

Project Veritas busts Google again.

No surprise, they do it (partially) by fishing in the pool of thirsty IRT engineers.
