Google Is Going To Update Brazilians’ New Data Protection Law LGPD

Technology giant Google is going to update the new data protection law LGPD (Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados) for the users of Brazil.

According to the source, Google already offers data protection terms under the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

Google already informs the users that, we will be updating those existing data protection terms to add LGPD-specific terms. Google’s status under the LGPD as either a controller or processor for each product will be the same as under the GDPR. The LGPD terms will be incorporated into our existing data protection terms, so no action is required to accept the LGPD terms where the existing data protection terms already form part of your contract.

The new law is expected to go into effect on August 16th, 2020, but ongoing discussions in the Brazilian government may result in a change to the effective date.
