google tracking your buying history

Tech Giant Google is quietly keeping track of every single purchase people have made in years, due to purchase receipts sent to users personal gmail account.

According to a report of CNBC on Friday, the information is made available to users via private web-tool which, the company claims, keeps your data private.

In 2017, Google said it would stop using data collected from Gmail messages to personalize ads.

“To help you easily view and keep track of your purchases, bookings and subscriptions in one place, we’ve created a private destination that can only be seen by you,” Google told The verge in a statement.

“You can delete this information at any time, We don’t use any information from your Gmail messages to serve you ads, and that includes the email receipts and confirmations shown on the purchase page,” company said.
