EU Privacy Standards and GDPR

Last modified: November 12, 2020

If European Union (EU), UK or Swiss data protection law applies to the processing of information about you, you have certain rights, including the rights to access, correct, delete and export your information, as well as to object to or request that we restrict processing of your information.

For users based in the European Economic Area, UK or Switzerland, the data controller responsible for Service Data is Google Ireland Limited. However, where our customer has entered into an agreement covering Cloud Services with a different Google affiliate, that affiliate will be the data controller responsible for processing Service Data in connection with billing for the Cloud Services only.

If you want to exercise your data protection rights with regard to information we process in accordance with this Privacy Notice and are not able to do so via the tools available to you or your organization’s administrator, you can always contact Google via our Privacy Help Center. And you can contact your local data protection authority if you have concerns regarding your rights under local law.

In addition to the purposes and grounds described in this Privacy Notice, we may process information on the following legal grounds:

  • Where necessary for the performance of a contract with you

    We may process your information where necessary for us to enter into a contract with you or to comply with our contractual commitments to you.

  • When we’re complying with legal obligations

    We’ll process your information when we have a legal obligation to do so.

  • When we’re pursuing legitimate interests

    We may process Service Data based on our legitimate interests and those of third parties while applying appropriate safeguards that protect your privacy. This means that we process your information in the interests of providing Cloud Services you request; making recommendations to optimize use of Cloud Services; maintaining and improving Cloud Services; providing and improving other services you request; assisting you; and protecting against harm to the rights, property or safety of Google, our users, our customers, and the public, as required or permitted by law.
