Product Policies

The policies below outline our standards for the usage of Google products, including prohibited content or behavior. Our policies play an important role in maintaining a safe and trusted experience for everyone. We use a combination of automated and human evaluation to ensure use of our products complies with these policies. 

After we are notified of a potential policy violation, we may review the content or behavior and take action, including restricting access to the content, removing the content, and limiting or terminating a user’s access to the Google product.

The policies may differ because our products are different. Please be sure to check back because our policies are updated frequently. Please also refer to Google's Terms of Service for more information or visit this page for information about our privacy policies.

If you suspect there is abuse on a Google product or wish to request a review of a policy violation, please visit the product-specific page below to access their reporting and review tools.
