Recently some sources have informed that some ‘Data liberation Front’ launched a service called ‘Google Takeout’ that allows Google users to generate a backup of private data from all or some particular Google services as they feel there might be a case when a user wants to move out of Google services or need an offline access to the online located data.

Here is the message from Data Liberation Front who developed this service.
