https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/tosdr/lU-QhFXMOcU/Jmh9C_gCpB8J As you know, Google has decided to unify their ToS and privacy policy
under one umbrella rather than maintaining specific ToS for each of
their service.

This is both a good and a bad thing. The good thing is that this makes
things simpler to understand. The downside: you don't really know to
what service you agree :^) and your data for, say, a photo sharing
application, could be re-used later in another Google service that
didn't exist before.

This is reflected in the copyright license. Overall, this copyright
license seems reasonable enough compared to Facebook or Twitter for
instance, as it is limited. However this limitation goes beyond the
requirement for running the service, as it includes "promoting" the
service. But that seems okay to me. As pointed out earlier, the problem
lies in what constitutes "the service" itself because it is basically
any Google service, existing or not-yet-existing.

*are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and

continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for
a business listing you have added to Google Maps). Some Services
may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been
provided to that Service. Also, in some of our Services, there
are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the
content submitted in those Services.

Why is this "neutral"?

Yes, it is for "the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones", but what does count in here? Also, "this license continues even if you stop using our Services".

Don't forget that Google now owns a lot more than just search history. They also have your location history, shopping history and even all your photos (if you use Google Photos) and credit card details. Imagine if this would be used for "promoting".

This should probably be tagged as "bad".
