This report considers the situation up to the end of August 2022. However, there have been further developments by the time of submission of this contribution in early September. The Danish DPA has suspended the current ban for a short period and issued the municipality a number of orders to legalize the use. In practice, this means that the students in Helsingør Municipality can resume the use of Google Workspace during this period. However, the permanent use is conditional on the Municipality handling the outstanding issues analyzed in this report regarding contracts, technology and documentation. For more information see <> accessed 26 September 2022. Special thanks to Rie Aleksandra Walle and Mark Fenwick for their valuable comments and feedback to this contribution.
