    Hello all,


    We are reaching out to let our communities know that we will be moving the site off of our current hosting platform to Google Cloud this week.

    If you notice any issues, please report them in the Community to Team section and we will get them addressed ASAP.

    Thanks in advance,

    Your Community Management Team

    It would be a crime to lose even 1 post of this library of information that's been carefully and lovingly compiled since, what - 2006?

    When you use G Suite or Google Cloud Platform, you can:
    Know that your security comes first in everything we do.
    We promptly notify you if we detect a breach of Google’s security that compromises your data.

    Control what happens to your data.
    We process your business’s data according to your instructions. Access your data when you want. Take out the data that you put in.

    Know where Google stores data and rely on it being available when you need it.
    We publish the locations of our Google data centers; they are highly available, resilient, and secure.

    Depend on Google’s independently-verified security practices.
    Our adherence to recognized international security and privacy standards is certified and validated by independent auditors — wherever your data is located in the Google Cloud.

    Trust that we never give any government entity “backdoor” access to your data or to our servers storing your data.
    We reject government requests that are invalid and we publish a transparency report for government requests.
    See the data processing terms for G Suite and Google Cloud Platform for details.

    @adcandour Is the above section in/part of the "G Suite" and/or "Google Cloud Platform"?

    Sorry..I am totally lost with this (which must be VERY obvious...LOL).

    Why? We don't own the forum, we have no say.
