Google leads the internet world and with its tools, it knows what you are doing and what you are looking for and using your Gmail account and its assistants Google track your information and personalize your internet usage.
Basically, Google tracks all this data from your Gmail account and the payment receipts you receive to the Gmail account which you have used to make a purchase online and keeps that information to a particular platform linked to your Google Account from where you can access all other Google services.
Google also tracks the real world transactions like the purchases you have made on Point of Sales using your Credit or Debit Card if the service is linked with Gmail accounts and the receipts are delivered to your Gmail Account.
According to Google as they told us in the comment “To help you easily view and keep track of your purchases, bookings, and subscriptions in one place, we’ve created a private destination that can only be seen by you,”.
“You can delete this information at any time. We don’t use any information from your Gmail messages to serve you ads, and that includes the email receipts and confirmations shown on the Purchase page.” Google added.
You can actually delete all this information by rolling back to your payment receipts on Gmail and delete them individually.
Google’s Data Privacy
This raises concerns over privacy policies of using your vital information with multiple controversies including use of Google Chrome web browsing sync with your Gmail account.
In an op-ed of the New York Times last week Google’s Sundar Pichai wrote that “privacy cannot be a luxury good,” and pledge to add more privacy tools to keep the transparency of how your data is collected, who is getting your data and how you can delete your data.
This appears to be starting with Google adding Incognito mode to Google Maps, YouTube and Google Search. The upcoming Android Q is more focused on your data privacy and transparency announced at the Google I/O 2019.
