You just made my case for me.  It makes no sense for Google to lie and risk getting caught.  It makes far more sense for them to say nothing if they intend to keep doing what they are doing. 
 
In addition, it is common knowledge that e-mail, when unencrypted, can be easily seen during transmission by people having nothing to do with the server.  That should be far more concerning than whether algorithms are used to look for words in messages to determine what sort of ads to show.

I don't know about that. I think they lie more by omission than commission. Not telling the whole story. Corporations are about themselves and the bottom line, not anything else. Maximize profit at all costs, so to speak.
