Google Issue Tracker Service Specific Terms

In addition to the Google Terms of Service, the following additional terms apply to your use of Google Issue Tracker. Google may make changes to this policy from time to time.

  1. Your Content in Google Issue Tracker. Google Issue Tracker is a service that allows you to collaborate and interact directly with Google on projects as well as submit issues and information to Google. Google Issue Tracker permits you and other users to upload, submit, store, send or receive information and other content (collectively, "Content"). When you use Google Issue Tracker to upload, submit, store, send or receive Content, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such Content for the purposes of collaborating on Google projects; reviewing and responding to user submissions; operating and improving existing Google services and operations, and developing new ones; and protecting Google, its services, operations, and users. This license continues even if you stop using Google Issue Tracker. Administrators and users may set the view and access privileges to certain issues. This may mean your email address and Content may be visible to other users who are authorized to access that issue and your access to issues may sometimes be limited.
