Default Google, how safe is it?

this morning i had made a google account, because for one eurovision fan contest you need to fill in a sign up form countries list you want via google

i didn't trust it that much, and i deleted it


but my question is now, can they still bother me via mail despite me having removed my account completely



i know there are millions of people who use google so i think i wouldn't get noticed too much, and now having deleted it, i'm gone from their list of users, right


i just am a bit paranoid with these sort of computer things, and i get paranoid more because i care about the safety of my computer

Under new GDPR rules Nicky you cannot be contacted unless you give your express permission, companies risk big fines if they do not comply so I think you will be fine

i know but it's a relief for me now, i only made that account with the thought of otherwise i couldn't take part in that fan contest anymore

but i wasn't planning on using that for more things since i didn't trust google docs before i made the account for that

i don't think i'm a subject of interest for them anymore since i no longer have a account now

you guys can use google, and i have it as my search browser still but people like me who get scared easily shouldn't have a account

they only want to know your location, to monitor your area of suspicious activity regarding hackers
