In Google Workspace for Education Core Services, Google uses student personal information primarily to
provide the core services that schools and students use, but it’s also used to maintain and improve the
services; make recommendations to optimize the use of the services; provide and improve other services
your student requests; provide support; protect Google’s users, customers, the public, and Google; and
comply with legal obligations. See the Google Cloud Privacy Notice for more information.
In Google Additional Services, Google may uses the information collected from all Additional Services to
deliver, maintain, and improve our services; develop new services; provide personalized services;
measure performance; communicate with schools or users; and protect Google, Google’s users, and the
public. See the Google Privacy Policy for more details.

No. There are no ads shown in Google Workspace for Education core services. Also, none of the personal
information collected in the core services is used for advertising purposes.
Some additional services show ads; however, for users in primary and secondary (K12) schools, the ads
will not be personalized ads, which means Google does not use information from your student’s account
or past activity to target ads. However, Google may show ads based on general factors like the student’s
search queries, the time of day, or the content of a page they’re reading.

We may allow students to access Google services such as Google Docs and Sites, which include features
where users can share information with others or publicly. For example, if your student shares a photo
with a friend who then makes a copy of it, or shares it again, then that photo may continue to appear in the
friend’s Google Account, even if your student removes it from their Google Account. When users share
information publicly, it may become accessible through search engines, including Google Search.

Google will not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of
Google except in the following cases:
With our school: Our school administrator (and resellers who manage your or your organization’s
Workspace account) will have access to your student’s information. For example, they may be able to:
• View account information, activity and statistics;
• Change your student’s account password;
• Suspend or terminate your student’s account access;
• Access your student’s account information in order to satisfy applicable law, regulation, legal
process, or enforceable governmental request;
• Restrict your student’s ability to delete or edit their information or privacy settings.
With your consent: Google will share personal information outside of Google with parental consent.
For external processing: Google will share personal information with Google’s affiliates and other trusted
third party providers to process it for us as Google instructs them and in compliance with our Google
Privacy Policy, the Google Cloud Privacy Notice, and any other appropriate confidentiality and security
For legal reasons: Google will share personal information outside of Google if they have a good-faith
belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary for legal
reasons, including complying with enforceable governmental requests and protecting you and Google.
