University of Alberta Google Terms of Service

Access to Google Apps Education Edition including, but not limited to, Gmail, Calendaring and Google Docs (collectively “Google Apps”) is being provided to the University of Alberta community. Review these UAlberta Acceptance Terms prior to using UAlberta Google Apps.

Specifically, in consideration of being provided Google Apps through the University of Alberta, you agree as follows:

  1. In using Google Apps you acknowledge and agree that you will comply with all applicable University of Alberta policies including, without limitation, the Information Technology Use and Management Policy located at https://policiesonline.ualberta.ca/PoliciesProcedures/Policies/Information-Technology-Use-and-Management-Policy.pdf. You agree that for the purposes of the University of Alberta Information Technology Use and Management Policy Google Apps is considered an “information technology resource”. In addition, you agree that you will comply with the Google Apps Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) located at http://www.google.com/apps/intl/en/terms/use_policy.html.
  2. The University of Alberta has taken steps to have its agreement with Google be in compliance with Alberta privacy laws. However, it is still the case that Google Apps may be hosted in any number of countries including the United States and therefore subject to the laws of the hosting country. This means that your records, including emails, attachments, documents and calendaring data, stored, received and sent through your University Google Apps Account may be transmitted to and stored on servers outside of the University, Alberta or Canada. The University of Alberta cannot and does not guarantee protection against the possible disclosure of your data including, without limitation, against possible secret disclosures of data to a foreign authority as a consequence of foreign laws.
  3. You are also agreeing that you are hereby releasing the University of Alberta from any liability whatsoever arising from your use of Google Apps in contravention of these Acceptance Terms, any applicable University of Alberta policies or the AUP.
