This might well be the creepiest #Google page ever: All the purchases a user has ever done. If the user receives a confirmation email for a purchase they made, the user is not notified that Google collected and displays this piece of information in this page. There is no explanation why they are collecting all the purchases in one page, and apparently there is no way to opt out of this or even delete the purchases from the list.

@miramarco why? It's signal for their ad system. I'd guess this information is being made public due to gpdr concerns.

@pnathan It might be as you say, but (1) the purpose for collecting those data is not stated, (2) there is no way to ask Google to delete those data and to stop collecting them, (3) Google say that it's only the user who can see such data (so if it's actually used for advertisement, Google is purposely lying or misleading). I feel like there are some GDPR violations among all of that.
