Since you have previously used one or more of these products in your Google Account storage<www.google.com/appserve/mkt/p/AD-FnEwvhxPOx3Lypie_9IBSx9xm1Y4BQ5jbw873GCwsl88614qy00QmIjXAAXTL9GyY_uUoHutsw4OD2UE6SLON_Aao5EeRhBSvqMAKB_CKs89vJDnIUDCM-0aMwzdYLlHYisuv3Y2HtTlbOPCpHZDkx7q2I2GurEAy9XX…>, we wanted to tell you about the new policies well before they go into effect on June 1, 2021. Below is a summary of the new policies. Please reference our Help Center article<www.google.com/appserve/mkt/p/AD-FnExaPG5_ABFb9M3t8E8ZojDqbPHTWZzcy9l6eTMaEgXO3ksRlN3WQZPclgcCotJmpLammEKuSAADosLv4E1vZjyWsGZzl7ph_Ednji7XoGb4Mnk2QMIFt4DkMigJ4LZMn2pJG6iUN4homvqp> for a complete list of what’s changing.
Summary of the new policies (effective June 1, 2021):
– If you’re inactive<www.google.com/appserve/mkt/p/AD-FnEx1VgFCFMSyWvgrBTLfbMiwrNTfZ3E0xbNEI6BHO2TWM2ljJHE7cAOdDaFIRX2VxS0GoECCFpj3ZAV2j-qMJZDqmDr82Z9UM5mLtADwEO30FVoM2qUvryy-Z4CGH77SFj5PbFHc3wZRuQ> for 2 years (24 months) in Gmail, Drive or Photos, we may delete the content in the product(s) in which you’re inactive.

– If you exceed your storage limit for 2 years, we may delete your content across Gmail, Drive and Photos.
What this means for you:
– You won’t be impacted by these changes unless you’ve been inactive or over your storage limit for 2 years. As this policy goes into effect June 1, 2021, the earliest it would be enforced is June 1, 2023.
– After June 1, 2021, if you are either inactive or over your storage limit, we will send you email reminders and notifications in advance and prior to deleting any content.
– Even if you are either inactive or over your storage limit for one or more of these services and content is deleted, you will still be able to sign in.
– Note: The inactivity and over quota storage policies will apply only to consumer users of Google services. Google Workspace, G Suite for Education and G Suite for Nonprofits policies are not changing at this time, and admins should look to the Admin Help center<www.google.com/appserve/mkt/p/AD-FnEwOJpYy7wjj0fmU_A1qoZB_LdYLOWvfFADcEv3rRCFY8dat7Sr-xoxPm-_tnOQ42IMby2omsozIwwhe8Tw9GjB9Yq87F0Zhf9awyL1khHvwyzUILOz9ORPQQP7gYCQ> for storage policies related to their subscriptions.
