Google Can Remove Your Account If You Break Its Rules.

In order to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, Google+ requires its users to be at least 13 years old. Last year, a 10-year old Gmail user in the Netherlands signed up for a Google+ account, and was reported ,that's when trouble started.

The boy, Alex, was kicked off of all Google services for his terms of service violation. Furthermore, his father writes in a blog post that Google informed him that his account will be deleted in 29 days unless he can provide some proof of age.


This brings up a troubling but important point for internet. Google rules so many markets in the world and this makes it entirely possible to rely only on one company for managing your digital life such as email, word processing and document management, and now social networking(G+).

There are two sets of rules to follow. Its general terms of service applies to all things Google, and the community standards are specific to Google+. It includes things like:

  • no nudity or sexually explicit material
  • no hate speech
  • no impersonation of others
  • no publishing of someone's private or personal information
  • no copyright infringement
  • no spamming or phishing

These are all pretty common sense guidelines, but with the new precedent that you can lose all Google services for breaking them, it's a healthy reminder.
