It is found that even if you delete the “web history” from your Google account, Google doesn’t stop storing information collected by it’s bots for internal usage and to improve users experience. So no matter what you do, you cannot stop Google from determining who you are, what you like, where do you live, your sexual orientation, religion and other sensitive information about you.

Note: Disabling Web History in your Google account will not prevent Google from collecting and storing this information and using it for internal purposes. It also does not change the fact that any information collected and stored by Google could be sought by law enforcement.
With Web History enabled, Google will keep these records indefinitely; with it disabled, they will be partially anonymized after 18 months, and certain kinds of uses, including sending you customized search results, will be prevented.
