20 Welcome to Google!
21
22 Thanks for using our products and services (“Services”). The Services are
23 provided by Google Inc. (“Google”), located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway,
24 Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.
25
26 By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them
27 carefully.
28
29 Our Services are very diverse, so sometimes additional terms or product
30 requirements (including age requirements) may apply. Additional terms will
31 be available with the relevant Services, and those additional terms become
32 part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.
33
34 Using our Services
35
36 You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
37
38 Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services
39 or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the
40 instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted
41 by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and
42 regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you
43 do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating
44 suspected misconduct.
45
46 Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual
47 property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use
48 content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or
49 are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to
50 use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or
51 alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
52
53 Our Services display some content that is not Google’s. This content is
54 the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may
55 review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our
56 policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we
57 reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not
58 necessarily mean that we review content, so please don’t assume that we
59 do.
60
61 In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service
62 announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt
63 out of some of those communications.
64
65 Some of our Services are available on mobile devices. Do not use such
66 Services in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic
67 or safety laws.
68
69 Your Google Account
70
71 You may need a Google Account in order to use some of our Services. You
72 may create your own Google Account, or your Google Account may be assigned
73 to you by an administrator, such as your employer or educational
74 institution. If you are using a Google Account assigned to you by an
75 administrator, different or additional terms may apply and your
76 administrator may be able to access or disable your account.
77
78 To protect your Google Account, keep your password confidential. You are
79 responsible for the activity that happens on or through your Google
80 Account. Try not to reuse your Google Account password on third-party
81 applications. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password or
82 Google Account, [7]follow these instructions.
83
84 Privacy and Copyright Protection
85
86 Google’s [8]privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data and
87 protect your privacy when you use our Services. By using our Services, you
88 agree that Google can use such data in accordance with our privacy
89 policies.
90
91 We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate
92 accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the U.S.
93 Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
94
95 We provide information to help copyright holders manage their intellectual
96 property online. If you think somebody is violating your copyrights and
97 want to notify us, you can find information about submitting notices and
98 Google’s policy about responding to notices [9]in our Help Center.
99
100 Your Content in our Services
101
102 Some of our Services allow you to submit content. You retain ownership of
103 any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short,
104 what belongs to you stays yours.
105
106 When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give
107 Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store,
108 reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from
109 translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content
110 works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform,
111 publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this
112 license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving
113 our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you
114 stop using our Services (for example, for a business listing you have
115 added to Google Maps). Some Services may offer you ways to access and
116 remove content that has been provided to that Service. Also, in some of
117 our Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use
118 of the content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the
119 necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit
120 to our Services.
121
122 If you have a Google Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile
123 photo, and actions you take on Google or on third-party applications
124 connected to your Google Account (such as +1’s, reviews you write and
125 comments you post) in our Services, including displaying in ads and other
126 commercial contexts. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing
127 or visibility settings in your Google Account. For example, you can choose
128 your settings so your name and photo do not appear in an ad.
129
130 You can find more information about how Google uses and stores content in
131 the privacy policy or additional terms for particular Services. If you
132 submit feedback or suggestions about our Services, we may use your
133 feedback or suggestions without obligation to you.
134
135 About Software in our Services
136
137 When a Service requires or includes downloadable software, this software
138 may update automatically on your device once a new version or feature is
139 available. Some Services may let you adjust your automatic update
140 settings.
141
142 Google gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and
143 non-exclusive license to use the software provided to you by Google as
144 part of the Services. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling you
145 to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as provided by Google, in the
146 manner permitted by these terms. You may not copy, modify, distribute,
147 sell, or lease any part of our Services or included software, nor may you
148 reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of that software,
149 unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you have our written
150 permission.
151
152 Open source software is important to us. Some software used in our
153 Services may be offered under an open source license that we will make
154 available to you. There may be provisions in the open source license that
155 expressly override some of these terms.
156
157 Modifying and Terminating our Services
158
159 We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or
160 remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a Service
161 altogether.
162
163 You can stop using our Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to
164 see you go. Google may also stop providing Services to you, or add or
165 create new limits to our Services at any time.
166
167 We believe that you own your data and preserving your access to such data
168 is important. If we discontinue a Service, where reasonably possible, we
169 will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to get information
170 out of that Service.
171
172 Our Warranties and Disclaimers
173
174 We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and
175 care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are certain
176 things that we don’t promise about our Services.
177
178 OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL TERMS,
179 NEITHER GOOGLE NOR ITS SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE ANY SPECIFIC
180 PROMISES ABOUT THE SERVICES. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS
181 ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SERVICES, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE
182 SERVICES, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR
183 NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE SERVICES “AS IS”.
184
185 SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED
186 WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND
187 NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL
188 WARRANTIES.
189
190 Liability for our Services
191
192 WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, GOOGLE, AND GOOGLE’S SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS,
193 WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL
194 LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE
195 DAMAGES.
196
197 TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF GOOGLE, AND ITS
198 SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, FOR ANY CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS, INCLUDING
199 FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE
200 THE SERVICES (OR, IF WE CHOOSE, TO SUPPLYING YOU THE SERVICES AGAIN).
201
202 IN ALL CASES, GOOGLE, AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE
203 LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE.
204
205 Business uses of our Services
206
207 If you are using our Services on behalf of a business, that business
208 accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify Google and its
209 affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or action
210 arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these
211 terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses,
212 damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees.
213
214 About these Terms
215
216 We may modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service
217 to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services.
218 You should look at the terms regularly. We’ll post notice of modifications
219 to these terms on this page. We’ll post notice of modified additional
220 terms in the applicable Service. Changes will not apply retroactively and
221 will become effective no sooner than fourteen days after they are posted.
222 However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made
223 for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to
224 the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that
225 Service.
226
227 If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the
228 additional terms will control for that conflict.
229
230 These terms control the relationship between Google and you. They do not
231 create any third party beneficiary rights.
232
233 If you do not comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right
234 away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have
235 (such as taking action in the future).
236
237 If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not
238 affect any other terms.
239
240 The laws of California, U.S.A., excluding California’s conflict of laws
241 rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these
242 terms or the Services. All claims arising out of or relating to these
243 terms or the Services will be litigated exclusively in the federal or
244 state courts of Santa Clara County, California, USA, and you and Google
245 consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
