We understand that you may have recently received an email to your @sky.com address from Google
We’d like to apologise for any confusion this email may have caused. It was sent in error and
should be ignored.
Google’s technology supports the Sky email service, and hence supports your @sky.com address.
However, as a @sky.com email subscriber, your only relationship is with Sky. Sky’s
Terms and Conditions and
Privacy Notice apply and not Google’s.
To reiterate, please ignore the earlier email you were mistakenly sent. To be clear, Google’s
privacy changes do not apply to your @sky.com email account.
Please be assured that we are taking this matter very seriously and are working with Google
to understand how this error occurred.
We’ve put together a series of frequently asked questions to address any additional queries
that you may have and these can be found below.
Thank you for your understanding.
We’re very sorry that you received this email. It was sent to you by Google in error and
should be disregarded. Sky operates its own
Privacy Notice which you have signed up to and thus the information

No, as a Sky user, it is Sky’s
Privacy Notice that applies to you.
