Undesirable, but let's continue.

For applications in educational institutions, we find it undesirable that the ownership and responsibility for this data lies with Google. As a result, educational institutions using Google G Suite have little to no control over what happens with their data, creating a potential risk for the future. For example, if this metadata is being used to place personalised advertising.


We assume Google will make changes so the identified risks will be removed and education institutions can continue to use G Suite for Education safely.
