Google Drive/Cloud

Linda Berens uses Google Drive/Cloud to store data in private encrypted directories. Here is what Google does to protect data in the cloud:
Google employs security and privacy professionals that include some of the world’s foremost experts in information, application, and network security. This team is tasked with maintaining the company’s defense systems, developing security review processes, building security infrastructure, and implementing Google’s security policies.

Google also employs an extensive team of lawyers, regulatory compliance experts, and public policy specialists who look after privacy and security compliance for Google.

These teams engage with customers, industry stakeholders, and supervisory authorities to shape our G Suite and Google Cloud Platform services in a manner that helps customers meet their compliance needs.

Processing According to Instructions

Any data that a customer and its users put into our systems will only be processed in accordance with the customer’s instructions, as described in our current as well as our GDPR-updated data processing agreements.

Personnel Confidentiality Commitments

All Google employees are required to sign a confidentiality agreement and complete mandatory confidentiality and privacy trainings, as well as our Code of Conduct training. Google’s Code of Conduct specifically addresses responsibilities and expected behavior with respect to the protection of information.


Google uses encryption to protect data in transit and at rest. Data in transit to G Suite is protected using HTTPS, which is activated by default for all users. G Suite and Google Cloud Platform services encrypt customer content stored at rest, without any action required from customers, using one or more encryption mechanisms. A detailed discussion of how we encrypt data can be found in our Encryption Whitepaper.

Access Controls

For Google employees, access rights and levels are based on job function and role, using the concepts of least-privilege and need-to-know to match access privileges to defined responsibilities. Requests for additional access follow a formal process that involves a request and an approval from a data or system owner, manager, or other executives, as dictated by Google’s security policies.

Vulnerability Management

We scan for software vulnerabilities using a combination of commercially available and purpose-built in-house tools, intensive automated and manual penetration testing, quality assurance processes, software security reviews, and external audits. We also rely on the broader security research community and greatly value their help identifying vulnerabilities in G Suite, Google Cloud Platform, and other Google products. Our Vulnerability Reward Program encourages researchers to report design and implementation issues that may put customer data at risk.

ConstantContact (Email Campaigns and Newsletters)

How Constant Contact Protects Your Data

Our current privacy program has been certified to the obligations and standards of the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shields, which means we lawfully transfer and protect the personal data of EU/EEA residents to the U.S. pursuant to the rules of the Federal Trade Commission and the EU. This means that we have already implemented many privacy requirements that are similar to those required by the GDPR.

Constant Contact is committed to achieving compliance with the GDPR by May 25, 2018. This will include work “behind the scenes,” such as reviewing and updating (as necessary) our agreements, policies, internal processes, features and templates to assure our compliance.
