    Question Google Android -Question About Collecting Connections/SMS/MMS/Logs

    Hi !

    I have a question. In Google Privacy Policy (http://www.google.pl/intl/en/policies/privacy/) there is:

    When you use our services or view content provided by Google, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include:
    (...)
    telephony log information like your phone number, calling-party number, forwarding numbers, time and date of calls, duration of calls, SMS routing information and types of calls.

    Let's assume that I have got a phone with Android connected to Google account. Does Google collect information about my calls (outgoing or incoming) or SMS/MMS ? In Privacy Policy it's stated that it "may" collect, but that doesn't mean that it actually does. Maybe Google collects that data only if someone is using Google Voice or Google Talk, and data about "normal" (GSM/CDMA/3G) connections/SMS/MMS aren't collected.

    I would assume it to be collected and kept for whatever amount of time Google does this. Then, they have the data available for whoever they allow access to it. Of course, you would have to ask someone in the Google chain of command to get a more precise answer. BTW, welcome to the site.
