Hi Sinan,

it is not against the purpose of GNU, the purpose of GNU is to have a
Free operating system.  Trademarks are not a problem for this purpose.

That document seems outdated, please refer to this one:
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/legal/privacy/notices-firefox.  In both
versions anyway I don't see anything against GNU principles, it is an
external service to use as-is.  I am not a lawyer to understand
consequences completely, does anybody know more about it and if these
services are a problem for GNU IceCat?
