According to this article, "The Danish data protection authority (Datatilsynet) has issued an injunction regarding student data being funneled to Google through the use of Chromebooks and Google Workspace services in the country's schools." I wonder how interested Google is in continuing these products if they can't use them to drive data into their servers. Moreover, "given that restricting sensitive data processing on Google's end will be hard, if not impossible, for municipalities to assure, there may be no practical way to adhere to the new policies without blocking the use of Google Chromebooks and/or Google Workspace."
