Having seen this for a month on YouTube, i took a look at Google's new privacy policy webpage where I notice these intriguing lines:

Local storage: We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.

we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include:
