In a statement, Google said the new policy will not change existing contracts that define how it handles and stores data belonging to government users of its cloud services. “Enterprise customers using Google Apps for Government, Business or Education have individual contracts that define how we handle and store their data,” Amit Singh, vice president of Google Enterprise said in a statement.
“As always, Google will maintain our enterprise customers’ data in compliance with the confidentiality and security obligations provided to their domain,” he said.
Singh was responding to concerns raised Wednesday by Karen Evans, former de facto federal CIO and administrator of e-government and IT at the White House Office of Management and Budget.
