I would start by looking at the Stadia dev website https://stadia.dev/  that has some information that might well be of use to your school research project.

With regards to security/privacy concerns, then you can look at the Stadia Privacy Policy and see if any of the items listed are a concern or not.

When you play a game on Stadia, Google may share certain data with the game publisher to support gameplay, enable in-game functionality, investigate problems, facilitate improvement of Stadia or the game and provide customer support. This information may include:

  • limited account information, such as your country, your province or state (if you are in Canada or the US), country of purchase, time zone and your Google account language setting;
  • Stadia profile information, such as your Stadia Name, avatar and a unique identifier that is assigned to you by Stadia;
  • information about the devices that you use in connection with Stadia, such as screen size and the type of input devices;
  • gameplay data, such as game saves, in-game achievements, in-game statistics, online status, restricted features, data to enable multiplayer and matchmaking, game input from input devices that you use (e.g. mouse and keyboard, controller, microphone) and, if you access games that use Stadia’s StreamConnect feature, the video and audio of your game;
  • identifiers of users who you have blocked on the platform and who have blocked you;
  • data about game performance on Stadia, including error reports;
  • social data, such as identifiers for your friends on Stadia, only with your additional consent; and
  • information about your content entitlements on Stadia, such as in-game purchases and subscription status.
Kudos appreciated if deserved.
