Over a year ago, we wrote about our commitment to GDPR compliance across G Suite and Google Cloud Platform. Google Cloud’s focus on data security, privacy, and transparency provided a strong foundation towards achieving that commitment, and we’ve made multiple updates to ensure that Google Cloud customers can confidently use our services when the GDPR takes effect on May 25.
It’s important to note that GDPR compliance is a shared responsibility. Google Cloud generally acts as a data processor, and as a data processor we process data only as instructed by you—our customers. In turn, you own your data, and Google Cloud is committed to advancing tools and resources that put you in control.
