Quote Exalted Wombat:
The point with Google, and with most privacy issues is not to put yourself in a position where you HAVE to "trust" them. If you ask for directions, the person you ask will remember where you were going. A good shop assistant remembers your preferences. If that information has commercial value, good luck to them!
I agree. Good luck to them. It won't be *my* information though.
