Theres a huge difference
Your postman also knows from whom you receive when something, thats because
he has to deliver it. Similarly the publisher knows what you subscribed from
his magazins because he needs to know this to send the magazins to you.

google OTOH collects such information without them being in any way in
the chain of people who need the information and they do so at a large
systematic scale.
The difference is like the difference between a photographer who your
daughter hired to take erotic pictures of her vs. a photographer who climbs
up trees and takes pictures of people in their bathrooms or bedrooms and
does so systematically and without their consent or knowledge. And he is
going to attempt to make profit from these pictures.
