Your Data Is Your Data.

Can Internet Companies be forced by Government to disclose data that is stored by its customers?
Recently there has been a lot of concern on the NSA Prism program where government has been secretly obtaining data from companies; an undisclosed program, now made known to the public. "NSA Prism program taps in to user data of Apple, Google and others" - The Guardian UK
The National Security Agency has obtained direct access to the systems of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants, according to a top secret document obtained by the Guardian.
The NSA access is part of a previously undisclosed program called Prism, which allows officials to collect material including search history, the content of emails, file transfers and live chats, the document says.
