Data collection by Firebase authentication

Reason: Firebase Authentication uses the data to enable end-user authentication, and facilitate end-user account management. It also uses user-agent strings and IP addresses to provide added security and prevent abuse during sign-up and authentication.

Retention: Firebase Authentication keeps logged IP addresses for a few weeks. It retains other authentication information until the Firebase customer initiates deletion of the associated user, after which data is removed from live and backup systems within 180 days.

Data collection by Firebase hosting

Reason: Hosting uses IP addresses of incoming requests to detect abuse and provide customers with detailed analysis of usage data.

Retention: Hosting retains IP data for a few months.
