(Q1) What is the "G Suite for Education(formerly Google Apps for Education)"?

(Q2) What is the individual capacity that can be used?
(A2) Unlimited as of March 2020 (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 G Suite for Education (formerly Google Apps for Education) FAQ - G Suite Admin Help.)

(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) Can I use other G Suite(formerly Google Apps)besides email (calendar, chat, etc.)?
(A5) In addition to Gmail, you can use Group, Drive, Calendar and Contacts. But, it will not be possible to integrate with data concerning the Google account obtained by individuals.
