    I do not have a gmail account on my phone, nor do I want one, but I have an email account that uses the gmail platform, even though it is not an @gmail.com email address. I don't want google to "see" my contact list etc. but I don't know if this will happen because I'm using the gmail platform.

    If it's a Google Apps account, it can be used as a primary account on an Android device, including for downloading apps, using Android Pay, etc. I have both a Gmail and a Google Apps account and can use either for all functions on the device.

    The only reason I really still have both is that I have all my app, music, book and magazine purchases tied to my Gmail address and I don't feel like paying for some of that stuff all over again (or at all since some of the music was acquired free on promotion).
