I pay for my email at tutanota.com. I pay for my storage at Microsoft Office 365. I use duckduckgo.com for search. I use FireFox as my primary browser.

All these services is the issue..
I use google... for all the above... they gain from it, do I lose from it? thats the question and I do not have the answer.
