Data protection is more than just security. Google offers strong contractual commitments in our Data Processing Amendment to make sure our customers maintain control over the data and how it is processed, including the assurance that your data in the Apps Core Services is used for the purposes specified in your agreement, and not used for advertising.
The protection of user data is a primary design consideration for all of Google’s infrastructure, applications and personnel operations. Protection of user data is far from being an afterthought or the focus of occasional initiatives, it’s an integral part of what we do. We believe that Google can offer a level of protection that very few can match. Because protecting your data is part of our core business, Google can develop security innovations such as 2-step authentication and stronger encryption methods. We are able to make extensive investments in security, resources and expertise at a scale that few can afford. Our scale of operations and collaboration with the security research community enable Google to address vulnerabilities quickly or prevent them entirely. Google’s security and operational procedures are verified by independent third-party auditors.
