Since WT doesn't gain access to your Google Account, only uses it to verify you are you and to send you emails, I would say that it can't access your Gmail account. The Guardian article is different. There the company uses Gmail and a Google business account to provide email to employees. That is a very different concept. In that case, yes, the company can see your emails.
