Google Hosted Libraries Terms of Service

What does using the Google Hosted Libraries mean for the privacy of my users?

The Google Hosted Libraries are designed to limit the collection, storage, and use of end-user data to what is needed to serve our hosted libraries efficiently.

The general Google Privacy Policy applies to our service and we provide the following additional statement for all requests to our resource-specific domains (e.g.

  • Google Hosted Libraries uses resource-specific domains, so that requests for hosted libraries are separate from requests made when using other Google services. Requests to these resource-specific domains are unauthenticated.
  • Google Hosted Libraries only uses cookies as necessary for security and to prevent abuse.
  • Google Hosted Libraries supports and recommends using encryption via HTTPS.
  • We log records of HTTP(S) requests to the Google Hosted Libraries to measure performance metrics and diagnose problems. Our systems are designed to remove HTTP referer information before logging, to avoid associating requests with any individual website using the Google Hosted Libraries. Access to the logs is on a need-to-know basis only and kept secure. To learn more about the information Google collects and how it is used and secured, see Google's Privacy Policy.
