Additional Apps Are Available
Over the past few years, most of the supplemental, or additional "Apps" available for Google Apps have been evaluated and added to UW Google Apps.
Each of the Apps activated for UW Google Apps functions just like the version available to consumer Google accounts, but now you can use your UW Google Apps account to access each one.
These services supplement the core services already available through UW Google Apps.
Please Note: All laws and policies governing the appropriate use of UW computing resources apply to UW Google Apps. An overview of the relevant laws and policies can be found on the Appropriate Use web page.
Google Wallet & Individual Storage
Google Wallet has recently been activated for UW Google Apps and can be used to purchase a number of items for your UW Google Apps account, including extra storage for Google Drive and Gmail. While other items, like certain paid Apps, can also be purchased, please be aware of our general Usage Policies and Guidelines listed below. That section should help determine if purchases made for your account are appropriate. Lastly, keep in mind that no purchases can be transferred. All purchases you make for your UW Google Apps account are permanently attached to that account, even if the account expires. For this reason, we strongly recommend that all purchases for Staff and Faculty accounts use a UW ProCard.
Usage Policies and Guidelines
Data associated with UW Google Apps is subject to the same policies that regulate all other types of electronic records at the UW. As a result, contracts are in place with Google to address many important legal, regulatory, and compliance issues.
- Electronic records
Data stored using UW Google Apps is still considered a UW record. When using UW Google Apps, you are responsible for following the University's Data Security Standards.
- Appropriate use
UW Google Apps is covered by the same rules that govern all other computing resources. For more information, see the UW's Appropriate Use Guidelines.
- Agreements with Google
Many of these additional Apps carry specific terms of service. In addition, different Apps have different data protection standards. A summary of these differences can be found in our Cloud Services Comparison Table.
