If I save my gym workout data somewhere on the internet, it's not so relevant. But some of the data that doesn't seem important today might become important in the future. If my doctor saves X-rays of my injured knee on his server, it may not bother me now. But what if I want to change my health insurance provider in ten years time, and the new insurer gets hold of the images? They might not want to insure me any more. Or only if I pay a much higher premium. These are things we have to think about. It's unfortunate, but once on the net means always on the net in most cases. It may not be possible to google this data, but somebody somewhere probably has access to the server. And in such cases I simply have to think about what consequences today's data could have in the future. My insurance card, my tax assessment... all of this data is stored digitally. I have to provide this data, I have no choice. But I also have no influence on what happens with it afterwards. Why isn't this considered a risk? Because it goes unnoticed. If my car gets stolen, the effect is immediately obvious. If my data gets stolen, I don't notice anything at first. I would therefore recommend everyone be more mindful when handling their data. And to encrypt all their data, no matter how insignificant it may seem.
