GeneralAn interesting discussion about Google and their GMail APIs [modified] PinmemberMarco Alessandro Bertschi14-Jan-13 0:34 
So I have an interesting discussion about Google Gmail and their APIs with Wes Aday in the Q&A[^] section and I'd like to share it with you guys.
 
The initial question was "Is there a possibility to get the users Gender, Phone number, personal address and other information throughout the GMail APIs[^]?"
 
IMO there is no problem when third-party software can have access to this information and store it to their database when the user has to grant the permission to Google that they are allowed to share the information with the third party software and the third party software is forced to use an encrypted and save connection.
 
As a second point: Why would a user share this sensitive kind of information with Google if he does not want to see it on another software he is using? I never have exposed my detailed personal address and cell phone number to Google because I see no need for them to know it.
 
As I think it is interesting how much information you can get through a Google API I will have a look into it and make a tech blog post or an article out of the information I'll gain.

Edit: too much information. Surrender.
cheers,
Marco Alessandro Bertschi
