An update to your Google Account

[image: Google] We associate your Google Account with a country (or region) so that we can better provide our services to you. This association is used to determine two things:
– The Google company that provides the services, processes your information and is responsible for complying with applicable privacy laws – The version of the Terms of Service that governs our relationship, which can vary depending on local laws
Your country association will change within 30 days:
– from *France* – to *Switzerland*
Bear in mind that Google services are essentially the same, regardless of your country association. Also, any purchased content and banking information that you might have in your Google Account will remain the same. This update also changes the regional-specific version of the Google Terms of Service that applies to your account. If the country associated with your account doesn’t match your country of residence, it could be because of a difference between your country of work and residence, because you’ve installed a virtual private network (VPN) to mask your IP address, or because you live close to a territorial border. If you recently moved, it can take about a year for your country association to update. You can find more information about your country association, and a way to request a change if you think that it’s wrong, by reviewing the Google Terms of Service. Your country association affects the Terms of Service that apply to your use of our services. You can find the terms that will apply to you once the country change takes effect in the Google Terms of Service <>, Play Terms of Service <> and YouTube Terms of Service <>. And, if you use Family Link to manage a Google Account for users below the age of consent, the change of country for your account will also change theirs, so please take some time to discuss these changes with them. You can change your privacy settings at any time in your Google Account <> and see and manage your data in Google Dashboard <> .
