A word of advise: Asking me to give you access to my email account is a very big leap of trust. I can't see what your product does without taking that leap - so I don't.

You're completely right, and my apologies. We're not quite ready to take on more users at the moment - to clarify, the signup on the homepage doesn't give us access to your account, it simply registers your interest. We've been hard at work on the product, so we held off on working on the landing page, but we absolutely will have a demo along with more information in the near future.

I quite agree that it takes trust. We do have a demo up for a safe hands-on with the product (demo.fluent.io). We certainly take your privacy seriously. Here's a bit more on that: http://fluent.io/privacy.html

"We are well versed in industry-leading privacy practices." - What is your country of jurisdiction (i.e. what government can access my email)? Google is based in the US and you are in Australia.

"Fluent never sees your Google password."

"You may revoke Fluent's access to your email box at any time..."

You should make this stick out, increase the font size, color it, bold it.
