Compliance amendments for Chrome services

Data Processing Amendment

On May 25, 2018, the most significant piece of European data protection legislation in 20 years came into force when the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaced the 1995 Data Protection Directive. We know that preparing for this regulatory change is a priority for many of our customers. It is a priority for us, too.

In anticipation of GDPR requirements, Google offers a Data Processing Amendment for all core Chrome services.

If the GDPR applies to Google’s processing of your data—for example, if you are established in the European Union, or established outside the European Union but offer goods/services to data subjects who are in the European Union—it requires your contract with Google to contain certain data processing terms

Unless you accept the updated Chrome terms of service, your contract will lack those data processing terms. We therefore recommend that you accept the updated Chrome terms of service on behalf of your organization or seek legal advice.
