G Suite for Education - Information for Families

Google’s G Suite for Education is a set of education productivity tools from Google including Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Classroom, and more used by tens of millions of students and teachers around the world. G Suite for Education is one of the important tools utilised by teachers and students to support learning. At St Patrick’s College, students use their G Suite accounts to complete assignments, communicate with their teachers, sign into several services such as our IT Help Desk and learn 21st century digital citizenship skills.

Student use of G Suite for Education is governed by the St Patrick’s College Technology Acceptable Use Agreement. Parents are encouraged to talk with their child about online etiquette and safety, and to ensure their child’s compliance with the Technology Acceptable Use Agreement. Students are responsible for their own conduct at all times when using G Suite for Education, just as they are when they use any technology resources the College offers.

This notice describes the personal information provided to Google for G Suite accounts and how Google collects, uses, and discloses personal information from students in connection with these accounts.
