For me it is very important that the content I would put into my Firebase database would remain mine and that it would only be used by/accessible to those that I explicitly grant access.
The license agreement says that I would grant Firebase the right to use the content (which is something I do not wish to agree to), but on the other hand it also says that Firebase is only granted to do so for the sole purpose of providing the service to me.
I'm confused by this and would appreciate any help on interpreting what the agreement really says about the content I would store in/access through their service.
I've asked for a clarification directly from Firebase. Their answer does not make things much more clear though:
I would consult legal counsel to determine what effects this would have on your application, as we aren’t able to provide legal guidance specific to your product. That said, these types of terms are fairly standard across SaaS vendors.
As far as I can tell they're essentially saying that I'll need legal guidance to determine what kind of rights Firebase are granted on my content as controlled by section 3.2.
Are they allowed to do pretty much anything with my content after I've stored it inside a Firebase database?
Could anyone give a definite answer to this? Or maybe it is impossible to give such an answer? (in which case it would effectively be impossible to agree to the license terms for anyone that cares about privacy and content protection rights!?)
