GDPR, Google Cloud

Hello Google Cloud Platform Customer,

We are sending you this message because (a) according to our records your organization is established in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, and/or (b) the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Data Processing and Security Terms currently govern how personal data is processed on behalf of your organization.

For the same reason, you will likely have received messages from us relating to the update we made to our Data Processing and Security Terms (DPST) for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We’d like to inform you that you may now enter your Data Protection Officer and EU Representative contact information on the GCP Privacy and Security page in your Google Cloud Console. If the GDPR requires your organisation to appoint a data protection officer (“DPO”) and/or EU representative, the GDPR requires Google to keep a record of their contact details. These details must be entered in your Cloud Console, where applicable. If you are unsure whether your organisation needs to appoint a DPO, you should seek legal advice.

Instructions:

Step 1: Navigate to the GCP Privacy and Security page.
Step 2: Under EU Representative Contact, click on the ‘Add Contact’ button. Input the contact details as defined and click on the ‘SAVE’ button.
Step 3: Under Data Protection Officer, click on the ‘Add Contact’ button. Input the contact details as defined and click on the ‘SAVE’ button.
         Note: If you are also a G Suite customer, this information is maintained in the G Suite Admin Console. You will be instructed to have the G Suite Super Admin review and/or edit this information in the Admin Console.

Also, if you haven’t already, you can opt in to version 2.0 of the Data Processing and Security Terms (DPST) from the same page. The updated terms will take effect simultaneously with the GDPR on May 25, 2018 and you will benefit from version 1.2 of our Data Processing and Security Terms until then.

More information regarding Google Cloud and the GDPR is available on our Cloud GDPR website. You might also receive similar communications concerning any other Google products you are using.

If you have any questions related to these new terms or the Google Cloud & the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) site, and if the FAQs below do not address these, please reach out to the Cloud Data Protection Team.
