Privacy compliance and records for Google Cloud

Google Cloud offers Data Processing and Security Terms (DPST), which incorporate Standard Contract Clauses (SCC) as a means of meeting the security, contracting, and data transfer requirements under EU, UK, and Swiss data protection laws.

How to opt in to the Data Processing and Security Terms

You need to opt into the DPST only if your Google Cloud agreement does not already incorporate the DPST by reference. If you’d like to opt in, complete the following steps:

  1. Go to the Google Cloud IAM & Admin page.

  2. If a project isn't already selected, select a project to use to opt in.

    Note: If you have multiple Google Cloud projects, you only need to opt in to the DPST within one Google Cloud project in your account.

  3. Below Data Processing and Security Terms, click Review and Accept.

  4. Read the agreement and then click I Accept.

How to indicate if European Data Protection Law applies to you and provide related information

If your use of Google Cloud is subject to the EU GDPR, UK GDPR, or the Swiss FDPA, and your billing address is outside Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, then you need to certify as such, and identify your competent Supervisory Authority by following the steps below.

Certify if European Data Protection Law applies

  1. Go to the Google Cloud IAM & Admin page.

  2. If a project isn't already selected, select a project to use to opt in.

    Note: If you have multiple Google Cloud projects, you need only to certify within one Google Cloud project in your account.

  3. Go to Privacy & Security, and click Legal & Compliance.

  4. Under Indicate that European Data Protection Law applies to you, click Certify if applicable.

Provide details of your European supervisory authority, DPO, and representative

You must be signed in to the Google Workspace Admin console as a super administrator for this task.

  1. To proceed, switch to a super administrator account. This opens the Workspace Admin console.
  2. From the Admin console, go to Account settings > Legal & Compliance.
  3. Under Your Supervisory Authorities, identify the applicable authority or authorities.
  4. Also, if applicable for your organization, enter Your data protection officer details and/or Your European representative details.
  5. Click Save.
