When you search for a restaurant on Google Maps or watch a video on YouTube, for example, we process information about that activity – including information like the video you watched, device IDs, IP addresses, cookie data, and location.
Note to process information Google has to STORE all that information Thus Google is saying it STORES video you watched, device IDs, IP addresses, cookie data, and location EVERY TIME you use You tube or Google Map
Google also process the kinds of information described above when you use apps or sites that use Google services like ads, Analytics, and the YouTube video player.

Google works with businesses and organizations in a variety of ways. It refers to these businesses and organizations as “partners”. For example, over 2 million non-Google websites and apps partner with Google to show ads. Millions of developer partners publish their apps on Google Play. Other partners help Google with securing our services; information about security threats can help us notify you if we think your account has been compromised (at which point we can help you take steps to protect your account).
We also combine data among our services and across your devices for these purposes. For example, we use data from trillions of search queries to build spell–correction models that we use across all of our services, and we combine data to alert you and other users to potential security risks.
There are many privacy controls you can use, even when you’re signed out, to get the Google experience you want.

INFORMATION COLLECTED OR RECEIVED BY GOOGLE’S ADVERTISING PARTNERS
Specific partners, listed below, can collect or receive non-personally identifiable information about your browser or device when you use Google sites and apps. These partners collect this information for advertising and ad measurement purposes, using their own cookies or similar technologies.
For example, we allow YouTube creators and advertisers to work with measurement companies to learn about the audience of their YouTube videos or ads, using cookies or similar technologies.
You can learn more about how these specific partners collect and use your information:
- Integral Ad Science
- Oracle Data Cloud
- Kantar (subsidiary of Ad/PR agency WPP)
- RN SSI Group
YouTube also allows advertisers and creators to serve advertisements directly, using their own ad serving technologies, outside of EEA countries.
We don’t share information that personally identifies you with our advertising partners, such as your name or email, unless you ask us to share it.
Which means Google DOES STORE the NAMES and EMAILS of people who log in before searching AND SHARES it with advertisers “if you ask them to share” How and when the option of sharing your personal data with advertisers is put before a logged in google user will determine “if you ask us to share” that data If it pops up as a huge pop up and is buried in acres of legal mumbo jumbo chances are you will “ask google to share” your personal data . Google could also slow down or restrict your search experience unless you “ask them to share your data” in which case you may again allow them to breach your privacy
For example, if you see an ad for a nearby flower shop and select the “tap to call” button, we’ll connect your call and may share your phone number with the flower shop
GOOGLE PLAY, GOOGLE STORE, GOOGLE PAY
Google Play (previously Android Market) is a digital distribution service operated and developed by Google. It serves as the official app store for the Android operating system, allowing users to browse and download applications developed with the Android software development kit (SDK) and published through Google. Google Play also serves as a digital media store, offering music, magazines, books, movies, and television programs.It previously offered Google hardware devices for purchase until the introduction of a separate online hardware retailer, Google Store, on March 11, 2015.
GOOGLE PAY (formerly Pay with Google and Android Pay) is a digital wallet platform and online payment system developed by Google to power in-app and tap-to-pay purchases on mobile devices, enabling users to make payments with Android phones, tablets or watches.
GOOGLE MAPS is a web mapping service developed by Google. It offers satellite imagery, street maps, 360° panoramic views of streets (Street View), real-time traffic conditions (Google Traffic), and route planning for traveling by foot, car, bicycle (in beta), or public transportation.
GOOGLE TRAFFIC is a feature on Google Maps that displays traffic conditions in real time on major roads and highways. Google Traffic works by analyzing the GPS-determined locations transmitted to Google by a large number of mobile phone users.By calculating the speed of users along a length of road, Google is able to generate a live traffic map
Cellular telephone companies constantly monitor the locations of user devices. One tracking method is trilateration, whereby the distance (time delay) to three or more surrounding cell phone towers is measured. Another tracking method monitors the exact user coordinates determined by a receiver inside the phone. GPS-equipped cellphones began appearing in 2004,and by 2011, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission required that all new cellular phones be able to pinpoint location to within 50 feet.
