As of January 22nd, 2019, Google has updated the contracting party for all their services from Google LLC to Google Ireland Limited for all instances where End-users are based in the the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland.
Below you’ll find highlighted portions of the notification email sent by Google.
You can read Google’s updated Terms here.
These changes may be applicable to you if you or any of your Users are based in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland.
*If you’re not sure if you may have EEA or Switzerland based users, it’s best to err on the side of caution and assume that it applies to you as well.
As quoted above, Google’s changes automatically apply to all your EEA and Switzerland-based end-users, regardless of where you are based.
Because you’re legally required to correctly identify third-party processors, we strongly suggest that you update the clauses in your policies that are related to affected Google services to include “Google Ireland Limited”.
If you’re based outside Europe and have users from both outside and within the EEA and Switzerland, you should consider adding both “Google Ireland Limited” and “Google LLC” using the method detailed below.
Next, click the pencil icon on the service you’d like to edit and simply click inside the “Select the region” field in order to update the information.
Click on “Save and Close” and you’re done.
