I recently did some contracting work for a small company that stored business files in Google Drive for Business. Their client (Georgia Power) has a policy that says that all such information is "critical" and must be stored on a "non-public server". Does Google Drive for Business meet this requirement? Does regular Google Drive meet this requirement?

Im kind of struggling to find a definition of non-public. If that just means password protected then everything is good, if it implies that no one but the company has access to it then this won't work because Google has access to the data. Any thoughts?

Google states on their help site

When you upload files to Google Drive, they are stored in secure data centers.

 If your computer, phone, or tablet is lost or broken, you can still access your files from other devices.

 Your files are private unless you share them.

The information stored there would technically be 'private' but any government intelligence agency could access with assistance from google with the right paper work. But, yes, its private.
