Let Me Google That For You: Privacy Policy Issues

Posted on Updated on

You will have read that the ubiquitous Google will be making dramatic changes to its privacy policy. These changes will affect most all of the suite of Google products, from search (the Google just about everybody knows) to e-mail (GMail) to drafting (Google Docs) and etc. Essentially, Google is going to be collecting your data across a wide variety of its platforms; and, you can’t opt out.

With numbers of attorneys moving to, or starting out in, GMail plus Google Apps, for productivity and practice management functionality, the revisions to the privacy policy become a potential point of concern for lawyers, especially given the fact that lawyers utilizing these services for firm business will likely maintain confidential information across Google’s various tools.
