h1. How to choose 3rd party service
You (or anybody else) should be able to run a copy of service (including all of its data) under your own control.
Examples: "Wikipedia":http://wikipedia.org has open source engine and DB dumps available, thus allowing anyone to fork the project.
If service doesn't need to understand your data, you should be able to encrypt it and don't trust service with decryption key.
Examples: "Amazon S3":http://s3.amazonaws.com, "GMail":http://gmail.com both can be perfectly private if you store encrypted data only.
