For our current and potential Google Apps clients – setting the record straight on fears surrounding email scanning, data mining, and advertising
One concern that came up in a recent new client meeting, and continues to keep rearing its head, is whether Google Apps for Work is scanning emails or tracking/mining user data for advertising purposes, and whether it contains advertising.
Rest assured that as of May 2014, Google does not scan the emails of its business and education subscribers, nor does it track their activity. Google Apps for Work and Education are also ad-free.
