Kim said that Google doesn’t sell any Workspace users’ data. “The content that you put into Google Workspace services (emails, documents, etc.) is yours. We never sell your data, and you can delete your content or export it,” she said in the blog post.
Further, she underlined that Google does not use your Workspace data to train or improve the underlying generative AI and large language models that power Bard, Search, and other systems outside of Workspace without permission. So yes, unless and until you give consent, your data remains private and secure.
Targeted ads are something a lot of digital citizens have to deal with. “Google does not collect, scan, or use your content in Google Workspace services for advertising purposes,” added Kim.
Duet AI is Google’s AI tool for Docs, Slides, and Sheets. The company said that while its AI stores any prompts or generated content alongside your Workspace content but does not share them outside your organisation.
Duet AI brings the same enterprise-grade security as the rest of Google Workspace, automatically applying your organization’s existing controls and data handling practices, such as data-regions policies and Data Loss Prevention, says Google.
