If you care about your privacy,
You should consider this:

1. Do not use Dropbox. Use @SpiderOak instead. Zero-knowledge, encrypted storage.

2. Do not use Gmail (or the like),
Use @ProtonMail or Countermail.
PGP (control of own keys on latter.) 2FA, keyfiles, etc.

3. Do not use Google Search (or @DuckDuckGo, since both are U.S based). Use @StartPageSearch.

4. Always use VPN, even for everyday-surfing. Consider VPN-chains (You->VPN->TOR->VPN)

5. Do not use LastPass (cloudbased). Use @KeePass (local)
6. Empty your clipboard automatically, often. Get a program to do it for you. Search it up.

7. Do not use regular USB drives. Use hardware-encrypted drives.

8. Always use FullDisk encryption. For PC = Truecrypt/Veracrypt. OSX = SOL.
