Come is at the core of their business model. The data that they collect is use to target ads to you. While you may want to split hairs and argue that they are not selling your data because it does not directly pass from Goggle to an acquiring company, by virtue of the fact that it is used for ad targeting it is getting sold.

Don't believe me -- have some friends send you a few emails to a gmail account that talk about your desire to purchase a new product -- say a leather briefcase -- and watch ads on the right of your screen.
