Google Apps and the Data Protection Act
I have been asked to look at the possibility of using Google Apps as our curriculum email system. I was wondering how people managed to get around the bit in the terms of service that states
bearing in mind that the data protection act says that data should not be held or processed outside the EU.
As part of providing the Services, Google may transfer, store and process Customer Data in the United States or any other country in which Google or its agents maintain facilities.
I was also wondering how people found the experience of switching over to Google Apps and also if there are any hidden charges for ‘extra features’.
