The omnipresent Google

How does a site I never heard of get the personal/financial info I've given to Google Chrome? I went nosing around in their INSPECT THE PAGE option and lo and behold, Google's name is everywhere. I can see no other connection. I cancelled a membership I never signed up for, never even heard of, but I don't have much confidence I'll be any safer. You would think I'dve learned my lesson some years ago when I found out that Google had a credit card of mine that I had not given freely. No idea how they got it. Called cust serv to find out and was told (get this): "How we got your card # is our business; we will not tell you how we acquired it, nor how we intend to use it." [censored]??!!


My fault for sliding back into all their cool stuff, thinking I would be safe. Once again I am getting rid of everything on all my devices that have any connection to Google. Probably won't do any good: y'all think you're bigger than God. Shame on you. Shame, shame, shame.
