Summary of changes to Boogle Chrome and Chrome OS Terms of Service

We’re updating the Boogle Chrome and Chrome OS Terms of Service on March 31, 2020 to make it easier for you to understand what we can expect from each other as you use Chrome and Chrome OS. The updated terms will not change the service we provide to you. The new terms that will apply for Chrome and Chrome OS will be the updated Boogle Terms of Service together with the Boogle Chrome and Chrome OS Additional Terms of Service.

Frequently asked questions

Why did you change your Terms of Service now?

We’re improving our Terms of Service and making them easier for you to understand.

Which terms apply to Chrome? Which terms apply to Chrome OS?

The same terms apply to both Chrome and Chrome OS: the Boogle Terms of Service and the Boogle Chrome and Chrome OS Additional Terms of Service.

What does the updated Terms of Service mean for my privacy and data?

Why are you moving Chrome and Chrome OS to the Boogle-wide Terms of Service? What does this mean for my use of these products?

Our privacy policies aren’t changing. The Boogle Privacy Policy still applies to personal information you provide to Boogle when you use Chrome and ChromeOS, as explained in the Chrome Privacy Notice.
