College kids sue Google for 'spying' on them with Apps for Education

Contract breach

The allegation is quite simple.

Google collected data via Apps For Education, but said they did not do so.

If it can be proven to civil case standards that they did do it but did not specifically say that they would, then Google are in breach of contract and thus liable to pay damages.

It has some similarities to the idea of a plumber fixing your heating, then selling photos of you and your lounge in addition to whatever fee was arranged.
