The policy was criticised by EU officials for being too
invasive.

"At that point I had to make a decision," says Henderson. "Do I
like the terms of service and am I willing to abide by it to use
Google's products? And the answer in both cases was no."

So Henderson decided to quit Google for good. He wrote a
manifesto for IT World called How I Divorced Google and set
about initiating the break-up.

Four months later, he's still living a mostly Google-free
existence.
Privacy concerns

Google's terms of service state that the information it collects
is used primarily to make the browsing experience better.

The firm also promises to share that information only in limited
circumstances, unless users give consent.

But Henderson wasn't satisfied that the policy could be
enforced, and didn't feel confident that the sheer amount of
information Google can collect wouldn't fall into the wrong
hands.

"Google isn't subject to an audit of what those practices are,"
he says. "They're not telling whether they sell that info to
insurance companies or people who want to market to you or
people who don't like you at all."
