I guess nobody knows ?

How would we? The creator of the gadget can do anything he wants with that information; that's your call to make.

Seems like it would be a popular Gadget if it worked correctly as advertised.

There's no security with Google Gadgets and few want to test the honesty of the coders creating these gadgets...or at least I have no intention of testing it!

thats scary that Google adds them to their list all sweet and innocently...without any knowledge of what could be inside...
Even installing it to the gadget bar just takes one second with one click.
So would you guys say you wouldnt install any of those gadgets, no matter how popular they are ?
My next one of interest was going to be :
That reports your Google Adsense stats live on the fly...on your desktop. Once again, I would definately use it if I knew it worked. I mean seriously, wouldnt you guys love to use these yourself ? That is cool , convenient stuff right there if it works.
The adsense one has a lot of positive ratings (as seen on that link)..but once again, im not sure of where this data goes when I login.

Google makes some of the gadgets; I would believe those can be trusted.
I actually have made some Google Gadgets...obviously I won't put any viruses on my work, but the problem is I could if I was inclined to. What Google should do is review the top 100 and keep them, delete the rest, then have a stingy review process for future gadgets.
