Recently I came across this story  by Todd Haselton that describes how the author located an obscure “purchases” page in his Google account settings and there found a methodical list of his online purchasing history, from third-party outside vendors, going back to 2o12.

The upshot of the story was that:

        Google saves years of information on purchases you’ve made, even outside Google, and pulls this information from Gmail.
        It’s complicated to delete this private information, and options to turn it off are hidden in privacy settings.
        Google says it doesn’t use this information to sell you ads.
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
