I know Yifanlu has been off, and I do see his point but to sort-of disagree with him I have to quote this:

Well, I didn't know any Amazon customer service rep can easily have access to my Personal Documents!!! Until, I called Amazon a few days ago and the CS could tell me everything about my personal documents!!!

Unwise to assume that Amazon can't see what's on their own servers. I really wouldn't store anything that you wouldn't want the world to see on a Cloud storage system.

Written like a non-member of the "we trust anything electronic" generation.

Same goes for any of those "free" file hosting services.
There has never been any such thing as a "free lunch".

To forstall a bunch of reply noise:
**NOT** even if you encrypt it.
That is only good for a warm and fuzzy feeling now, but no one can predict the technical future.

And mentioned only to trigger a paranoia attack in those readers subject to it:
Modern cell phones can often use encryption of their packets - -
but not all, and even those that can, don't always.
Older cell phones - forget it - you might just go the nearest rooftop and shout.
Plus -
the user does not have any indication if the over the air connection is encrypted or not.
