Privacy notes 

When you choose to connect your Periscope account to your Google account, the Google authentication dialog screen specifies the Google account information that you authorize sharing with Twitter, including your email. Once your Google account is connected to your Periscope account, you can additionally choose to give us access to your Google contacts. If you choose to give us access to your Google contacts, you will begin receiving broadcast suggestions based on your Google contacts who are on Periscope. You won’t receive push notifications for these suggestions. If you logout of your Google Account on Periscope, you will need to reauthorize our access to your Google contacts when you log back in to continue receiving broadcast suggestions based on your Google contacts who are on Periscope.

If you disconnect your Google account from Periscope, we will delete the Google account information that you authorize sharing with Twitter, including your email. Please note that it may take up to a few weeks for this information to be fully removed from our systems.
