Check What Google Knows About You With Google Dashboard
When you’re at Google and switch to Settings → Google account settings
you may now (if it’s already rolled out for you, that is) see a link to Google Dashboard
I think it’s excellent that Google makes available all this privacy relevant data in a single place. You might be surprised how much Google knows in case you’ve already forgotten a service or two you’ve signed up with. One thing to watch out for on the page is a little blue icon meaning “this bit is public”. At the bottom of the page, Google disclaims that 32 more products haven’t yet been made part of Dashboard (and it’s probably worth noting that Google may also not intend to list every single bit, like log files containing your IP or so.)
