Who can see what I’m printing?
When you use Google Cloud Print, your document is sent to Google and is saved until it's printed. The document is sent to and received by Google using a secure connection (https).
Note: Google sometimes stores info about the print job, but not the content of the document.
More on protecting your privacyWhat information is shared with Google when I use Cloud Print?
You share three types of information with Google when you use Google Cloud Print:
- Google keeps details about the print job (the job title, the printer you sent it to, printer status) as a record, along with your Google Account ID. This is used to process your print jobs.
- A copy of each document you send for printing is also kept until the print job is complete. This allows us to make sure your document gets printed. After the job is complete, the document is deleted from our servers.
Our servers also keep logs of the requests made by all Google Cloud Print users. These are routine server logs and do not contain any personal details. You can read more about how Google treats server log data.
Any document you send for printing is kept strictly confidential.
