8     Welcome to Google!
9    
10     Thanks for using our products and services (“Services”). The Services
11     are provided by Google Inc. (“Google”), located at 1600 Amphitheatre
12     Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.
13    
14     By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read
15     them carefully.
16    
17     Our Services are very diverse, so sometimes additional terms or product
18     requirements (including age requirements) may apply. Additional terms
19     will be available with the relevant Services, and those additional
20     terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.
21    
22     Using our Services
23    
24     You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
25    
26     Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our
27     Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface
28     and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as
29     permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control
30     laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to
31     you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are
32     investigating suspected misconduct.
33    
34     Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual
35     property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not
36     use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its
37     owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you
38     the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t
39     remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with
40     our Services.
41    
42     Our Services display some content that is not Google’s. This content is
43     the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may
44     review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our
45     policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we
46     reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not
47     necessarily mean that we review content, so please don’t assume that we
48     do.
49    
50     In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service
51     announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may
52     opt out of some of those communications.
53    
54     Your Google Account
55    
56     You may need a Google Account in order to use some of our Services. You
57     may create your own Google Account, or your Google Account may be
58     assigned to you by an administrator, such as your employer or
59     educational institution. If you are using a Google Account assigned to
60     you by an administrator, different or additional terms may apply and
61     your administrator may be able to access or disable your account.
62    
63     If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password or account,
64     [6]follow these instructions.
65    
66     Privacy and Copyright Protection
67    
68     Google’s [7]privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data
69     and protect your privacy when you use our Services. By using our
70     Services, you agree that Google can use such data in accordance with
71     our privacy policies.
72    
73     We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate
74     accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the
75     U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
76    
77     We provide information to help copyright holders manage their
78     intellectual property online. If you think somebody is violating your
79     copyrights and want to notify us, you can find information about
80     submitting notices and Google’s policy about responding to notices
81     [8]in our Help Center.
82    
83     Your Content in our Services
84    
85     Some of our Services allow you to submit content. You retain ownership
86     of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In
87     short, what belongs to you stays yours.
88    
89     When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give
90     Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host,
91     store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those
92     resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so
93     that your content works better with our Services), communicate,
94     publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such
95     content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited
96     purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to
97     develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our
98     Services (for example, for a business listing you have added to Google
99     Maps). Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content
100     that has been provided to that Service. Also, in some of our Services,
101     there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the
102     content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the necessary
103     rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our
104     Services.
105    
106     You can find more information about how Google uses and stores content
107     in the privacy policy or additional terms for particular Services. If
108     you submit feedback or suggestions about our Services, we may use your
109     feedback or suggestions without obligation to you.
110    
111     About Software in our Services
112    
113     When a Service requires or includes downloadable software, this
114     software may update automatically on your device once a new version or
115     feature is available. Some Services may let you adjust your automatic
116     update settings.
117    
118     Google gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable
119     and non-exclusive license to use the software provided to you by Google
120     as part of the Services. This license is for the sole purpose of
121     enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as provided
122     by Google, in the manner permitted by these terms. You may not copy,
123     modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services or included
124     software, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source
125     code of that software, unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you
126     have our written permission.
127    
128     Open source software is important to us. Some software used in our
129     Services may be offered under an open source license that we will make
130     available to you. There may be provisions in the open source license
131     that expressly override some of these terms.
132    
133     Modifying and Terminating our Services
134    
135     We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or
136     remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a
137     Service altogether.
138    
139     You can stop using our Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to
140     see you go. Google may also stop providing Services to you, or add or
141     create new limits to our Services at any time.
142    
143     We believe that you own your data and preserving your access to such
144     data is important. If we discontinue a Service, where reasonably
145     possible, we will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to
146     get information out of that Service.
147    
148     Our Warranties and Disclaimers
149    
150     We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill
151     and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are
152     certain things that we don’t promise about our Services.
153    
154     OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL TERMS,
155     NEITHER GOOGLE NOR ITS SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE ANY SPECIFIC
156     PROMISES ABOUT THE SERVICES. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS
157     ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SERVICES, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTION OF THE
158     SERVICES, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR
159     NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE SERVICES “AS IS”.
160    
161     SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED
162     WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND
163     NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL
164     WARRANTIES.
165    
166     Liability for our Services
167    
168     WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, GOOGLE, AND GOOGLE’S SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS,
169     WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL
170     LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE
171     DAMAGES.
172    
173     TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF GOOGLE, AND ITS
174     SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, FOR ANY CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS, INCLUDING
175     FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE
176     THE SERVICES (OR, IF WE CHOOSE, TO SUPPLYING YOU THE SERVICES AGAIN).
177    
178     IN ALL CASES, GOOGLE, AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE
179     LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE.
180    
181     Business uses of our Services
182    
183     If you are using our Services on behalf of a business, that business
184     accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify Google and its
185     affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or
186     action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation
187     of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims,
188     losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’
189     fees.
190    
191     About these Terms
192    
193     We may modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to a
194     Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our
195     Services. You should look at the terms regularly. We’ll post notice of
196     modifications to these terms on this page. We’ll post notice of
197     modified additional terms in the applicable Service. Changes will not
198     apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than fourteen
199     days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions
200     for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective
201     immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service,
202     you should discontinue your use of that Service.
203    
204     If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms,
205     the additional terms will control for that conflict.
206    
207     These terms control the relationship between Google and you. They do
208     not create any third party beneficiary rights.
209    
210     If you do not comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right
211     away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may
212     have (such as taking action in the future).
213    
214     If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will
215     not affect any other terms.
216    
217     The laws of California, U.S.A., excluding California’s conflict of laws
218     rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these
219     terms or the Services. All claims arising out of or relating to these
220     terms or the Services will be litigated exclusively in the federal or
221     state courts of Santa Clara County, California, USA, and you and Google
222     consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
223

225     [9]contact page.
