Specifically:

[/Library|~/Library]/Application Support

Contains application-specific data and support files such as
third-party plug-ins, helper applications, templates, and extra
resources that are used by the application but not required for it to
operate. This directory should never contain any kind of user data. By
convention, all of these items should be put in a subdirectory named
after the application. For example, third-party resources for the
application MyApp would go in Application Support/MyApp/. Note that
required resources should go inside the application bundle itself.
