Developer Profile Content Policy

By creating a developer profile, you agree to only provide content or information that does not violate the law nor anyone’s rights (including intellectual property rights). You also agree that your profile information will not mislead others.

In addition to the Google Terms of Service, we expect users to follow the Developer Profile Content Policy. As part of that we have automated systems that are intended to detect and remove content that is deemed to be against our content policy. This includes:

Vulgar Language and Profanity

Do not use obscene, profane, or vulgar language.

Spam

Do not spam. This can include unwanted promotional or commercial content, unwanted content that is created by an automated program, unwanted repetitive content, nonsensical content, or anything that appears to be a mass solicitation.

Do not distribute content that is off-topic or does not address the topic at hand.

Personal and Confidential Information

Do not store or distribute other people’s personal or confidential information without authorization. ​This includes the use of sensitive information, such as U.S. Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, credit card numbers, images of signatures, and personal health documents. In most cases where this information is broadly available elsewhere on the internet or in public records, like national ID numbers listed on a government website, we generally don’t process enforcement actions.

Hate Speech

Do not engage in hate speech. Hate speech is content that promotes or condones violence against or has the primary purpose of inciting hatred against an individual or group on the basis of their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or any other characteristic that is associated with systemic discrimination or marginalization.

Harassment

Do not harass, bully, or threaten others. We also don’t allow this product to be used to engage or incite others in these activities. This includes singling someone out for malicious abuse, threatening someone with serious harm, sexualizing someone in an unwanted way, exposing private information of someone else that could be used to carry out threats, disparaging or belittling victims of violence or tragedy or harassing in other ways, or inciting others to carry out these activities. Keep in mind that online harassment is illegal in many places and can have serious offline consequences for both the harasser and the victim. We may take appropriate action if we are notified of threats of harm or other dangerous situations, which may include reporting you to the relevant authorities and/or removing your account.

Malware and Similar Malicious Content Distribution

Do not transmit malware or any content that harms or interferes with the operation of the networks, servers, end user devices, or other infrastructure. This includes the direct hosting, embedding, or transmission of malware, viruses, destructive code, or other harmful or unwanted software or similar content. This also includes content that transmits viruses, causes pop-ups, attempts to install software without the user’s consent, or otherwise impacts users with malicious code. See our Safe Browsing Policies for more information.

Phishing

Do not use this product for phishing. This includes soliciting or collecting sensitive data such as passwords, financial details, and social security numbers. See our Safe Browsing Policies for more information.
