SWIPO Data Portability
Code of Conduct
Cloud Providers and Porting Data), a multi-stakeholder group
facilitated by the European Commission, developed a set of
Data Portability Codes of Conduct. These Data Portability
Codes of Conduct, which are voluntary, were written to
provide guidance on the proper application of Article 6 of
the Free Flow of Non-Personal Data Regulation.
Google Cloud is a member of SWIPO and supports this
SWIPO has released two Data Portability Codes of Conduct:
one which addresses SaaS services, and one IaaS services.
These Codes govern the relationship between Cloud customers
and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) to ensure customers are
able to effectively migrate their data from a cloud provider
Google Cloud is committed to addressing customers’ needs
for portability and interoperability, as well as promoting
openness to drive innovation. We provide organizations with
tools to view, delete, download, and transfer their content.
customers fully control their data and
have the ability to take it out of Google Workspace and
Google Cloud Platform should they decide to switch to other
platforms and/or store and process it on their own premises.
Along with offering technical capabilities to control and
export data, we clarify our data portability commitments to
our customers through legal means.
Our Enterprise Privacy Commitments detail
how customers own and control their data, and can take their
data out of Google Workspace and Google Cloud Platform
should they decide to switch to other platforms and/or store
and process it on their own premises. We include data
portability commitments in our data processing terms for
Google Workspace and Google Cloud Platform, and continually
work to enhance the robustness of our data export
To comply with the SWIPO Data Portability Codes, we have
our Transparency Declaration which
includes mappings for Google Workspace and Google Cloud
