Google account and user data

Accessing user data

The pydata_google_auth module accesses your Google user account, with the list of scopes that you specify. Depending on your specified list of scopes, the credentials returned by this library may provide access to other user data, such as your email address, Google Cloud Platform resources, Google Drive files, or Google Sheets.

Storing user data

By default, your credentials are stored by the pydata_google_auth.cache.READ_WRITE class to a local file, such as ~/.config/pydata. All user data is stored on your local machine. Use caution when using this library on a shared machine.

Sharing user data

The pydata-google-auth library only communicates with Google APIs. No user data is shared with PyData, NumFocus, or any other servers.

Policies for application authors

Do not use the default client ID when using the pydata-google-auth library from an application, library, or tool. Per the Google User Data Policy, your application must accurately represent itself when authenticating to Google API servcies.
