Hello Google Maps Customer,
We’re writing to let you know we updated our Controller-Controller Data
Protection Terms for Google Maps Platform on January 23, 2023.
What do you need to know?
The updates to our Protection Terms are the result of the adoption by the
UK of the International Data Transfer Agreement (IDTA) Addendum and
changes to several US state’s privacy laws. You can review the specific
updates to each country below:
- For the US:
- We added a US State Privacy Laws Addendum to the
Controller-Controller Data Protection Terms to support data protection
laws in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, and Virginia.
- The US State Privacy Laws Addendum has replaced the previous CCPA
Addendum (which only applied to California) as of January 1, 2023.
- For the UK:
- From March 2022, the UK International Data Transfer Agreement (IDTA)
Addendum allows the EU Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) to be used for
transfers of personal data under the UK GDPR.
- We removed the previously required UK specific Standard Contractual
Clauses as they are no longer necessary.
- You can review Google Maps Platform’s SCCs.
These updates won’t affect your use of other Google products or services as
they will only apply to Google Maps Platform.
What do you need to do?
No action is required on your part.
