From, Chief Legal Officer: We cannot say this more clearly—the government does not have access to Google servers—not directly, or via a back door, or a so-called drop box. Nor have we received blanket orders of the kind being discussed in the media. It is quite wrong to insinuate otherwise. We provide user data to governments only in accordance with the law. Our legal team reviews each and every request, and frequently pushes back when requests are overly broad or don’t follow the correct process. And we have taken the lead in being as transparent as possible about government requests for user information.

- Lordy, how great it is to be a non-american.Jun 12, 2013
- Honestly I do not care if the government is listening to my phone calls. I want it publicly known that I take no responsibility if the person listening to my phone calls commit suicide due to the boring, dull and stupid nature of my conversation. Same thing for my emails. Nothing secret,or terribly important about them either. Don't see what the big deal is IF you are not breaking the law, or plan to.Jun 13, 2013
