When you use the Box for Google Workspace integration, files to be processed are cached temporarily on Google servers. For more information on Google's cache/retention period:
Box maintains a platform customers can use in a secure and compliant way. Box customers are responsible for any third-party services and integrations they use with their Box accounts, including:
- independently verifying that third-party services such as Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides meet their HIPAA requirements (security or privacy practices, ensuring contractual requirements are in place via a BAA, and so on)
- evaluating the functionality of Google editors for compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and standards.
Where are Google files stored?
Google files you create and edit using the Box for Google Workspace integration are stored in Box at rest.

The Google files stored in Box act as any other Box file would. That means any security, compliance, or retention policies applied to your Box files also apply to Google files stored in Box.
Does the Box for Google Workspace integration work with Box Security Products?
