I will paraphrase what a ubuntu forums member said:
"People have an over inflated sense of their own importance"
Sure, google keeps tabs, but this is mostly browsing habits that they can use to throw targeted advertising at you. I very much doubt they keep info like your real name and address, or if they do, I doubt they do much with it. As for things like credit card details, unless you are required to take them (i.e. a shopping site) then I believe it is illegal to obtain them.
Cut short, most people are much less important than they think they are, and it's phishing scams that will screw them, not Silicon Valley.
