Google Apps Additional Services

Union College - Google Apps

A number of Google Additional Services (also referred to as "consumer apps") are available for faculty, staff and student* Union College accounts. After you opt-in to using these Additional Services, you will be able to use apps such as Blogger, YouTube, Maps, and Picasa with your @union.edu account.

Google Core Apps (part of Union College's contract)

G Suite (formerly Google Apps for Education) Core Apps include Mail, Calendar, Drive, and several others shown in the figure.  These apps are covered by the contract that Union College has with Google. This means that Union College owns this data and it is not indexed by Google for advertising purposes. In addition, there are no ads served on these apps.

Google Additional Services for Faculty, Staff and Students* (not part of Union College's contract)

Faculty, staff and students* may choose other apps to use with their Union College google account.  These other apps are not covered by the Union College contract.  After you opt in to using Additional Services, you will be asked to agree to a separate set of terms and conditions that cover those products.  These are the same terms of service and privacy policy that apply to Google’s consumer products.  If you choose to use Google Wallet, there is an additional Google Wallet terms of service that apply.  The data created while using these apps is not owned by Union College and is indexed by Google and may be used to serve ads.  That means that those apps do not offer the same FERPA, privacy, intellectual property ownership, confidentiality terms and conditions that the core apps do.

Connecting other Sites or Apps to your Union College Google Account

There are many sites or apps that offer a product or service that works with Google and connects to your Google account.  When you connect these sites or apps to your Google account, one of the steps you will be asked to do is to grant access or allow the site to have access to your Google account. Please keep in mind you are accepting some risk with choosing to allow access to your account — it is possible that a malfunctioning additional service could cause permanent loss of some of your data (e-mail, contacts, etc.).

Opting-in for Additional Services

Faculty, staff and students* can opt-in to using Additional Services by filling in the form here.

Additional Services are an opt-in service and will never be required in order to access any Core App.

Support for Additional Services

ITS will provide support for the G Suite (formerly Google Apps for Education) Core Apps which are included in Union College's contract (Calendar, Drive, Docs, Mail, Groups, Presentations, Sites, Sheets, Hangouts, Video).  Support for any Google additional service can be found at the Google Help Center.

*Students have access effective December 11, 2017.
