GDPR Violation: Chromebooks and Google Workspace Are Now Banned in Denmark Schools

Denmark is effectively banning Google’s services in schools, after officials in the municipality of Helsingør were last year ordered to carry out a risk assessment around the processing of personal data by Google.

Denmark’s data protection agency, Datatilsynet, revealed that data processing involving students using Google’s cloud-based Workspace software suite “does not meet the requirements” of the European Union’s GDPR data privacy regulations.
