A Google spokeswoman said the company “does not comment on the specific content” of any blog post, and said the host’s posts are private and do not affect its “hosting process.”
A spokeswoman for hosta said the blog post did not appear on the company’s platform.
The host said the posting came from Google’s own site and said it did not make any money from it.
“Google takes its privacy and security very seriously,” the host said.
“We do not disclose our content to Google and have never paid them to do so.”
A spokesperson for Google declined to comment.
It also states that content posted to third-party platforms, including Google search, is “not subject to our guidelines.”
Google said it has “zero tolerance” for illegal activity, including copyright infringement, and has “actively engaged with local law enforcement in our search and advertising efforts to combat this problem.”
A spokesman for Google said the hosting company is not affiliated with Google.
The blog post comes a few months after Google’s top privacy official, Brad Smith, wrote a blog post in which he said the tech giant “has done too little” to ensure that the company doesn’t violate people’s privacy.
Google said in a blogpost last year that it “does a very good job” of complying with requests for information from people who want to access content it doesn’t own.
“While we don’t always respond quickly or consistently, we are actively engaged with law enforcement and the courts to make sure we comply with the law,” the company wrote.
Google has come under increasing pressure to provide more information about the number of accounts it hosts, how often they log in and how many people visit each site.
The company last month told a federal judge in San Francisco that it had “no idea” how many of the more than 4 million Google accounts are operated by foreign governments.
It also disclosed that the number could be much higher because it does not track the identities of its users.
