Just read the Google Drive Terms of Service:

And look what I found

When you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for a business listing you have added to Google Maps).

This essentially gives Google the explicit legal (not even secret or illegal) access and right to modify your information, and manipulate and use it however they feel like as long as they can find an excuse as to how it improves their "services".

Never use Google Drive and stay away from Google "services wherever possible. Just warning everyone to stay safe and keep their rights.

I suppose they want something back for the billions of searches people use them for, which are often actually quite helpful. Its like facebook though, once you post stuff in FB they take ownership.

I bet most cloud storage has similar rules
I shoot up vertically like an arrow, and become that Above. But it is death, and the flame of the pyre. Ascend in the flame of the pyre, O my soul! Thy God is like the cold emptiness of the utmost heaven, into which thou radiatest thy little light.
