With two daughters at school, @alcinnz, you might know how I feel these days.
@Shamar @alcinnz exactly... My school provided us with a Google account. We have to use Google Meet everyday, with the provided account because, as my professors say, the school uses it to check user participation.

@alexl I'm not a lawyer, but to me that sounds like a very strong case of GDPR violation. If your university gave the full details of students' detailed contacts with lecturers and each other, including private correspondence, to a private corporation, and in doing so, exported it outside of the EU, then the GDPR fine should be huge.
Maybe @LaQuadrature could give you suggestions of what would be most practical to do?
