Google Chrome Privacy Notice

On Android, if supported by the merchant, Chrome will also allow you to pay using Android Pay. In order to customize your browsing experience based on languages that you prefer to read, Chrome will keep a count of the most popular languages of the sites you visited. This language preference will be sent to Google to customize your experience in Chrome. Web Apps on Android. On Android devices, if you select "add to homescreen" for a website that has been optimized for fast, reliable performance on mobile devices , then Chrome will use a Google server to create a native Android package for that web site on your device.

The Android package allows you to interact with the web app as you would with an Android app. For example, the web app will appear in your list of installed apps. Usage statistics and crash reports. By default, usage statistics and crash reports are sent to Google to help us improve our products. Usage statistics contain information such as preferences, button clicks, and memory usage. In general, usage statistics do not include web page URLs or personal information, but, if you are signed in to Chrome and syncing your browsing history in your Google Account without a Sync passphrase, then Chrome usage statistics include information about the web pages you visit and your usage of them.

For example, we may collect statistics to identify web pages that load slowly. We use this information to improve our products and services, and to give web developers insight into improving their pages. Crash reports contain system information at the time of the crash, and may contain web page URLs or personal information, depending on what was happening at the time the crash report was triggered.

We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with partners — like publishers, advertisers or web developers. You can change whether usage statistics and crash reports are sent to Google at any time. If Google Play apps are enabled on your Chromebook and Chrome usage statistics are enabled, then Android diagnostic and usage data is also sent to Google. Some websites encrypt media to protect against unauthorized access and copying.

In the process of allowing access to this media, session identifiers and licenses may be stored locally. These identifiers can be cleared by the user in Chrome using Clear Browsing Data with "Media licenses" enabled. The identifier is stored on your system. If you access HD content on Chrome OS, a content provider may ask Chrome for a certificate to verify the eligibility of the device.

To verify your device, your Chromebook will share data about its hardware attributes with the website, and will use Verified Access to certify that its cryptographic keys are protected by Chrome hardware.

Chrome will prompt you to allow or deny this verification check. This notice describes the Google services that are enabled by default in Chrome. In addition, Chrome may offer other Google web services. For example, if you encounter a page in a different language, Chrome will offer to send the text to Google for translation. You will be notified of your options for controlling these services when you first use them.

You can find more information in the Chrome Privacy Whitepaper. Chrome includes a number of identifiers necessary to power features. For example, if you use push messaging, an identifier is created in order to deliver notices to you.

Where possible, we use non-unique identifiers and remove identifiers when they are no longer needed. Additionally, the following identifiers help us develop, distribute, and promote Chrome, but are not directly related to a Chrome feature. Each copy of the Windows desktop version of the Chrome browser includes a temporary randomly generated installation number that is sent to Google when you install and first use Chrome.

This temporary identifier helps us estimate the number of installed browsers, and will be deleted the first time Chrome updates.

The mobile version of Chrome uses a variant of the device identifier on an ongoing basis to track the number of installations of Chrome. In order to help us track the success of promotional campaigns, Chrome generates a unique token that is sent to Google when you first run and use the browser. In addition, if you received or reactivated your copy of the desktop version of the Chrome browser as part of a promotional campaign and Google is your default search engine, then searches from the omnibox will include a non-unique promotional tag.

All mobile versions of the Chrome browser also include a non-unique promotional tag with searches from the omnibox. Chrome OS may also send a non-unique promotional tag to Google periodically including during initial setup and when performing searches with Google. We sometimes conduct limited tests of new features. Chrome includes a seed number that is randomly selected on first run to assign browsers to experiment groups. Experiments may also be limited by country determined by your IP address , operating system, Chrome version, and other parameters.

A list of field trials that are currently active on your installation of Chrome is included in all requests sent to Google. When you sign in to the Chrome browser or a Chromebook with your Google Account , your personal browsing data is saved on Google's servers and synced with your account.

This type of information can include:. These settings are automatically loaded for you anytime you sign in to Chrome on other computers and devices. To customize the specific information that you synchronize, use the "Settings" menu.

For children with Google Accounts created in Family Link, sign-in is required and Chrome Sync cannot be disabled because it provides parent management features, such as website restrictions. However, children with these accounts can still delete their data and disable synchronization of most data types. When you sync Chrome with your Google Account, we use your browsing data to improve and personalize your experience within Chrome. You can change this setting on your Account History page or manage your private data whenever you like.

If you don't use your Chrome data to personalize your Google experience outside of Chrome, Google will only use your Chrome data after it's anonymized and aggregated with data from other users. Google uses this data to develop new features, products, and services, and to improve the overall quality of existing products and services.

If you would like to use Google's cloud to store and sync your Chrome data but you don't want Google to access the data, you can encrypt all of your synced data with your own sync passphrase. You can limit the information Chrome stores on your system by using incognito mode or guest mode.

In these modes, Chrome won't store certain information, such as:. Chrome won't share existing cookies with sites you visit in incognito or guest mode. Sites may deposit new cookies on your system while you are in these modes, but they'll only be stored and transmitted until you close the last incognito or guest window.

When you make changes to your browser configuration, like bookmarking a web page or changing your settings, this information is saved. These changes are not affected by incognito or guest mode. Permissions you grant in incognito mode are not saved to your existing profile. In incognito mode, you will still have access to information from your existing profile, such as suggestions based on your browsing history and saved passwords, while you are browsing.

In guest mode, you can browse without seeing information from any existing profiles. You can set up personalized versions of Chrome for users sharing one device or computer. Note that anyone with access to your device can view all the information in all profiles. To truly protect your data from being seen by others, use the built-in user accounts in your operating system. Some Chrome browsers or Chromebooks are managed by a school or company. In that case, the administrator has the ability to apply policies to the browser or Chromebook.

Chrome contacts Google to check for these policies when a user first signs in to Chrome or starts browsing without signing in except in guest mode. Chrome checks periodically for updates to policies. An administrator can set up a policy for status and activity reporting for Chrome, including location information for Chrome OS devices.

Your administrators may also have the ability to access, monitor, use or disclose data accessed from your managed device. With Safe Browsing, information about suspicious websites is sent and received between the browser you are using and Google's servers.

Your browser contacts Google's servers periodically to download the most recent "Safe Browsing" list, which contains known phishing and malware sites. The most recent copy of the list is stored locally on your system. Google doesn't collect any account information or other personally identifying information as part of this contact.

However, it does receive standard log information , including an IP address and cookies. Each site you visit is checked against the Safe Browsing list on your system. Google cannot determine the real URL from this information. Some versions of Chrome feature Safe Browsing technology that can identify potentially harmful sites and potentially dangerous file types not already known by Google. The full URL of the site or potentially dangerous file might also be sent to Google to help determine whether the site or file is harmful.

Chrome uses Safe Browsing technology to scan your computer periodically, in order to detect unwanted software that prevents you from changing your settings or otherwise interferes with the security and stability of your browser. If this kind of software is detected, Chrome might offer you the option to download the Chrome Cleanup Tool to remove it. You can choose to send additional data to help improve Safe Browsing when you access a site that appears to contain malware or when Chrome detects unwanted software on your computer.

In addition, Safe Browsing protects your Google Account password. If you enter it on a likely phishing site, Chrome will prompt you to change your Google account password. If you sync your browsing history, Chrome will also flag your Google Account as likely phished.

If you are a Safe Browsing user and you are syncing your Chrome browsing history to your Google account, then, to improve the safety and utility of web feature permissions, Chrome may anonymously report the domains on which you grant, reject, and revoke permissions, or ignore or dismiss permission prompts.

You can always choose to disable the Safe Browsing feature within Chrome. You can use apps, extensions, themes, services and other add-ons with Chrome, including some that may be preinstalled or integrated with Chrome.

Add-ons developed and provided by Google may communicate with Google servers and are subject to the Google Privacy Policy unless otherwise indicated.

Add-ons developed and provided by others are the responsibility of the add-on creators and may have different privacy policies. Before installing an add-on, you should review the requested permissions. Add-ons can have permission to do various things, like:.

Some add-ons might require access to a unique identifier for digital rights management or for delivery of push messaging. You can disable the use of identifiers by removing the add-on from Chrome.

From time to time, Google might discover an add-on that poses a security threat, violates the developer terms for Chrome Web Store, or violates other legal agreements, laws, regulations, or policies. Chrome periodically downloads a list of these dangerous add-ons, in order to remotely disable or remove them from your system.

Information that Google receives when you use Chrome is used and protected under the Google Privacy Policy.

Information that other website operators and add-on developers receive, including cookies , is subject to the privacy policies of those websites.

We need to know the insides of every organ too, the various parts of the brain, liver, kidney, the lobes and bronchioles of the lungs, the chambers of the heart. I look forward to Google adding enough detail to make it useful for medical students and the like, rather than the current product which is chiefly going to be of value to school students and curious lay people.

The larynx is labelled as pharynx, think that should be corrected. Also, it would be nice if it was more detailed like landmarks on the bones and viscera.

A cross sectional view would also be great. For example if I could section it at any level rather than just looking at it from the outside, it would have been great.

December 15, Google Body Browser. Google has recently demoed an interesting WebGL application called Body Browser, which lets you explore the human body just like you can explore the world in Google Earth. Please note that this is an experimental feature in Chrome 8. Damon Hernandez was surprised to notice that the application doesn't require a plugin. This application will run on any WebGL supported browser. Last year I got the opportunity to work on an open standards based web3D medical app for learning the bones of the body.
