Google Launches GDPR Compliance Site

Google is aiming to steal a march on its tech rivals by launching a dedicated website designed to ensure customers and business partners understand how their data is being collected and stored in line with GDPR.

The new site details how the company has embraced the new legislation for its most popular services including Search, Gmail, AdWords, AdSense, DoubleClick, Analytics and its Cloud Platform.

In addition, the website explains how businesses ultimately control what data is shared with Google's products and services.  For firms which want to keep their business data isolated from other products, for instance, Google offers services such as its cloud platform and its G-Suite of cloud-hosted productivity apps.

Meanwhile, for businesses which share their data with Google for data mining and analytics purposes, Google offers services such as Analytics 360. 
"You choose what data your business shares with Google based on the products and features you use," the company said.
Google's director of privacy legal EMEA, William Malcolm added: "We are aware that our customers and partners have significant obligations under these new laws, and so we conduct regular audits, maintain certifications, provide industry-standard contractual protections and share tools and information to help them with their compliance."

Over the next few months, Google said it will also release updated contractual commitments with customers that meet GDPR requirements.
