Google Inc. has announced it will no longer scan the email messages of students and other school staff who use its Google Apps for Education suite, exempting about 30 million users from the chronically controversial practice for Gmail advertising, IDG has reported. “We’ve permanently removed all ads scanning in Gmail for Apps for Education, which means Google cannot collect or use student data in Apps for Education services for advertising purposes,” wrote Bram Bout, director of Google for Education, in a blog post. The company will continue scanning Gmail messages in the consumer version and in Google Apps for non-advertising purposes, such as security and overall productivity, a Google spokeswoman said.
