(Q1) What is the "G Suite for Education(formerly Google Apps for Education)" that will be introduced as the new system?
(A1) It is a service that Google is providing for educational institutions, and it permits the integrated use of functions including email, calendar, chat, and online storage, etc. (Next version of Keio mail will migrate to Gmail that is a function of this service. For details, see the Education Service page.)

(Q2) What is the individual capacity that can be used with the new system?
(A2) Unlimited as of November 2014 (the capacity that can be used for all G Suite for Education(formerly Google Apps for Education) services, including Gmail).

(Q3) Will advertisements be displayed? And will email and other data be used for the purpose of marketing etc.?
(A3) Gmail provided by G Suite for Education(formerly Google Apps for Education) has an interface identical to that of services for the general public, but it is completely different from such systems in that it does not display advertisements. Please do not worry about this, because email and other data are not collected or used for advertising purposes, and advertising profiles are not prepared based on this data. (For details, see the explanation in FAQ--G Suite for Education(formerly Google Apps for Education).)

(Q4) If Keio University ever breaks off its contract with G Suite(formerly Google Apps), to whom will ownership of the data in the server revert?

(Q5) Will I be able to use other G Suite(formerly Google Apps) besides email (calendar, chat, etc.)?
