I have to open the can of worms here, Who Cares?
Every email provider has the ability to open and view your emails, proton included. Your hosting YOUR information on THEIR servers for FREE, Unless your a communist you should expect to pay in some fashion for the service. If you dont like ads pay for google business. Where you have full ability to opt out of any information harvesting (Hipaa Version).
There is another side to the coin, without any metrics to gauge your interests we would all just see Erectile Dysfunction and hot singles near you! ads.
Everyone reads these polices like some bad guy is reading all your personal emails and stealing from you, (Or McGee From NCIS) nothing could be farther from the truth. Google Ads is a public platform you can use to promote your business. You select keywords and phrases that you want to trigger your ad to show for. Google uses a filter to search for the keywords and phrases in your online life. Its called market research and its how you get the things you want.
Two Important Points to remember:
No one cares about you or your activities, Honda wants you to see a gold wing ad when you send an email to Harley Customer Complaint department.
If you want your emails to be private, dont send them. Because you dont know the policies of the server your sending your email to or through.
3rd point, run your own mail servers and dont rely on any third party services.
