Protected Data Usage Guidelines

Please note - there are important restrictions for anyone dealing with ITAR or EAR (i.e., Export Controlled) data. Since the UC agreement allows Google to store data in any of their data centers, it’s possible that your data will be stored on foreign soil, which is prohibited for data that falls under Export Control regulations. Thus, if you have these data, use local storage sources, and of course, never share these data via email or other unsecured methods.
