Previously, Google scanned both the Gmail accounts and Google Search for kids established through the Google Apps for Education program in order to place ads alongside the kids’ emails and the results of their searches.
Last year, Google stopped placing ads with Google Search results accessed through Google Apps for Education but retained the scanning function. Now Google will remove the ability to place ads with the searches in its entirety from Google Search accessed via Google Apps for Education.
In addition, Google said will no longer scan kids emails to get information for advertisers.
Google said the change “means Google cannot collect or use student data in Apps for Education services for advertising purposes,” which it previously was able to do. However, Google will continue to scan emails but will not place ads alongside the emails.
