Excellent post. I was checking continuously this blog and I am impressed! Extremely helpful info specifically the closing phase 🙂 I handle such info a lot. I was seeking this certain information for a long time. Thank you and best of luck.

In fact no matter if someone doesnt understand after that its up to other visitors that they will help, so here it takes place.

Deleting an online account (in this case Google) is like deleting files off an HD, it is a logical delete, meaning you only delete your connection to it. The account information is still there, youre just not able access to it. If your account was actually physically deleted then you would not be able to recover it, no matter what you did and/or how fast you did it.

Besides, once something is posted/recorded on the Internet, it stays on the Internet, in some form, forever.

LOGICAL delete – only the directory entries pointing to the location of the data are overwritten. Data can still be recovered with the use of proper utilities.

PHYSICAL delete – both the directory entries and the data are overwritten with zeros or other characters. For all intents and purposes, data cannot be recovered.

The idea is not bad in my opinion – your data (so: your privacy) is their power.

After facebook it would be my second account I quit. (but due to the last remaining services I use Im not ready to leave it at all…)

Main issue I think is to get proper substitutes of the well known Google applications:

Im sure about this is not an option for everyone (especially the simple users), but I would apprechiate it 🙂

I reckon something genuinely special in this website.
