ALUMNI: Google Account Closure Information (Sept. 28, 2020)

Parents Students

Hello InTech Alumni,

I hope you are all doing well, especially with recent events having so drastically impacted us all!

I’m writing to inform you that due to recent licensing changes with InTech’s Google Suite, we will be unable to continue to keep Alumni accounts active after having graduated from InTech.  

This means that your email account (as InTech alumni) will be disabled and deleted from our system at the end of day September 28th, 2020. 

This will impact all ICHS Alumni who have graduated 2009-2020.

What to do BEFORE September 28th, 2020:

  • If you actively use your InTech account still and would like to backup/download your data before it is deleted:
    • Set Up an alternate email account with Google or another provider of your choice. 
      Note: If you are currently attending a higher-education institution, there is a good chance that they will still be able to offer a Google account to you, even after you graduate from there.  Check with their IT Department to see what options are available.
    • Go to https://takeout.google.com/ and sign in with your InTech Account.
    • Select all of the data from your InTech Google Account that you would like to save and download for your records.  Click “Next Step” at the bottom of the page.
    • It will take Google some time to package up all of your files for you to download.  In the next section, choose the delivery method they should use when the download is ready:

    • Choose the file type and size that you would like (in most situations, the default will suffice).
    • Click “Create export”.  Google will begin packaging all of your data to be downloaded.  How long this will take depends on how much data you have in your account. When ready, they will use the delivery method you configured to get the data to you.
  • If you do not actively use your InTech account, or do not need to backup/download your data before it is deleted:
    • You’re done!  You do not need to do anything, and at the end of day on September 28th, 2020, your InTech Google Account will be disabled and deleted.

To be clear, if you do not download/backup your data from your InTech Account by September 28th, 2020.  It will be irrevocably deleted from our system – and cannot be recovered at a later date.

Please let InTech’s IT Team know if you have any questions regarding this by emailing us at tickets@intechacademy.org

We would also like to get your contact information for future Alumni Class Reunions and other Alumni related items.  If you’d like to be kept in the loop, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/9jDMtdy29DPjgWQ27

Be well all!
