The fault is with regulators, not Google
Regulators cannot be held responsible for the total lack of common sense of most people on this planet.
What you want to keep private you keep to yourself. Host it on your own site with your own protection in place. Keep your email on your own domain name. Keep your documents, spreadsheets and anything else on your own computer.
I've never stopped wondering since way back when all this stuff of online storing (whatever it may be) started to take off why on earth anyone would trust an unknown entity (whatever its name) with what is nobody's busy then your own. The mind boggles.
