10. What about my privacy? Does Desktop Search share my content with anyone?

We treat your privacy with the utmost respect. Google Desktop Search
doesn't make your computer's content accessible to Google or anyone
else. The application also offers privacy options such as not indexing
password-protected Office files or secure (HTTPS) web pages.

You can learn more about this issue by reading the Desktop Search privacy
policy.
