I wouldn't trust any commercial entity to store my confidential data
on their servers.

Entering your home requires a search warrant, data-mining content
in transit or subpoena records can (will, actualy) be done silently.

Also, you're not in control. You might be denied access or your data
destroyed. If you lose data at home, that's a different matter subjectively.
