Terms & Privacy
Your data and Bard
This notice and our Privacy Notice describe how Bard handles your data. Please read them carefully. Visit your Google Account to access settings and tools that let you safeguard your data and protect your privacy.
Google LLC (Google) collects your Bard conversations, related product usage information, the general area that you’re in (learn more), and your feedback. Google uses this data to provide, improve, and develop Google products and services and machine-learning technologies, including Google’s enterprise products such as Google Cloud.
By default, Google stores this information with your Google Account for up to 18 months. To help with quality and improve our products, human reviewers read, annotate, and process your Bard conversations. We take steps to protect your privacy as part of this process. This includes disconnecting your conversations with Bard from your Google Account before reviewers see or annotate them. Please do not include information that can be used to identify you or others in your Bard conversations.
If you want to use Bard without saving your conversations to your Google Account, you can pause saving your Bard activity. You can review your prompts or delete your Bard conversations from your account at myactivity.google.com/product/bard. Bard conversations that have been reviewed or annotated by human reviewers are not deleted when you delete your Bard activity because they are kept separately and are not connected to your Google Account. Instead, they are retained for up to three years.
See Bard FAQ to learn more about how Bard works and how Google uses your Bard data.

You agree that your use of Bard is subject to the Google Terms of Service and the Generative AI Additional Terms of Service.
Microsoft’s terms of service in regards to privacy are here. There is a lot of text there but I couldn’t find comparable items to those I found concerning in Google’s.
Looks pretty standard for any Google product…
Wasn’t Google’s code of conduct “Don’t be evil” at some point? I guess that went the way of information kept private..
Yes, it was. Im almost certain they stopped saying that many years ago.
Google is run by liberals, so expect everything they say to be the opposite of the truth.
