I've long heard rumors Google harvests private data it 'finds' via gmailAhhh, but in internet terms, it isn't private if it lies in a public directory. Google could not access the file if it did not have your permission. Publishing a file in a public directory is essentially giving permission to the public, including Google.
Requests page, then the favicon.ico.

If you want it private, use a password protected (private) directory.
As I stated x2, the directory was private. Oh, and the directory it was in was also private
How did it get in if the protected directory is set up properly?
No I'm not conflating the two. There is no such thing as private when you publish anything on the world wide internet.
it that don't make a bolt for the door, I suppose no much will
I'll have to check with my linguist and get back to you.
the sender did not agree to the gmail tos
And as dstiles illustrated up above, Google is everywhere. My husband uses an Android phone, and G has records of his calls AND my calls to him. If I leave v-mail, they have that, too. (A few years ago, G publicly released searchable private transcripts -- oops -- and people rightly freaked out on so many levels.)
Is it too much to ask that they pick one UA and stick with it?
