How do we use your Google account?

code.pyret.org asks for several permissions when you log in:

You can always go to https://security.google.com/settings/security/permissions?pli=1 and remove all access that code.pyret.org has to your account. Your programs and code.pyret.org folder will not be deleted if you do so. You can always manually delete the folder and its contents yourself.

Where are things stored in my Drive?

The site initially makes a single folder in your Google Drive, called code.pyret.org, and stores all of your programs there, with the names you choose for them. They are all created with you as the owner, and private to your account.

If you publish programs, the site creates a new folder, called code.pyret.org.shared, and makes publicly-readable copies of programs you publish in that directory. If you delete this files in this folder, links for those programs you have shared with others will stop working, but any copies others have made will be theirs to keep. Each time you publish a program, a new copy is created from its current contents.
