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.
