Would like some clarification on the Jolicloud EULA

I would like some clarification, regarding the Jolicould EULA.

In particular, I would like a bit more information regarding this statement:

"You hereby grant to Jolicloud a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license to: (i) reproduce, modify and publish any Content that you use; and (ii) distribute and/or display through the Jolicloud Software any Content that You provide or make available using the Jolicloud Software for the sole purposes of making the Jolicloud Software available to You."

To what content is this referring? Is this stating that, if I send an e-mail, via G-mail or some other e-mail client, that I've now granted Jolicloud the right to use the information contained in that e-mail for what ever purposes they choose? If I create a document in OpenOffice on my netbook running Jolicloud, I've now granted Jolicloud the right to do what ever they want with the contents of that document? Or is "Content" just referring to information relating to my account information and PC specs?

Please clarify what Jolicloud is referring to as Content. I really like using Jolicloud, but not enough to give up rights to all of the data I create on my PC.

We also think that EULA (End User License Agreement) should be improved, we are currently reviewing it and we will update it soon.

Of course, we do not have access to the content you create from applications beside the Jolicloud desktop.
We do not (and cannot) read your emails, your office documents, etc...

Thanks for your support!
