No privacy on Amazon's cloud

You get at least 5GBs of free cloud-based storage, and its trivial to get 20GBs of free storage on Amazon Cloud Drive. Used in concert with the Amazon Cloud Player you get a fine cloud-based music player that can be used either from a Web browser or on Android tablets with the Amazon MP3 App. The new Amazon consumer cloud service also works well. It’s just too bad that you have to give up all privacy to use it.

Don’t believe me? Read the Amazon Cloud Drive Terms of Use for yourself. 
In particular, take a glance at: Section 5.2:

“5.2 Our Right to Access Your Files."
