Data Logging (last updated 4/17/19)

Google works continuously to improve its products, using customer or consumer data to refine experiences where permitted.

For Cloud Talent Solution to deliver smart results, you need to opt into the data logging program. This program allows Google to use and retain customer data for the purpose of refining its job and company modeling, which improves the quality of your job search models. By opting in, you gain access to the common job models that Google has trained using data collected through the data logging program and other public sources.

As a service which relies on usage data being collected over extended periods (to accommodate for things such as seasonality in job searching), Cloud Talent Solution requires opting into the data logging program in order to receive, manage, and query job, company, and usage data, and to personalize your model weights.

Data Privacy and Security

When you opt into the program, Google does not log all of your data: Google only uses the data sent to Cloud Talent Solution and to the Cloud Talent Solution project identifier in Cloud Pub/Sub on the project with data logging enabled. You can continue to use other Google Cloud projects without data logging enabled.

You continue to maintain full ownership of all data that you upload to a project with data logging enabled. However, Google retains ownership of the actual models trained from that data, and may maintain your data as long as required to identify seasonal and other extended trends in your data unless you delete it. For more details about the terms and conditions for data logging, see the terms for opt-in for data logging.

Only a limited set of authorized Google employees have access to your data collected by data logging. If you instruct us to do so by opting in to data logging, Google uses this data solely to train and improve Google products and services. Google does not use your data or any personally identifiable information contained in your collected data to target products, services, or advertising towards you, your users, or your customers.
