19 vapier 1.1
20     Welcome to Google!
21    
22 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
26 vapier 1.2 By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them
27     carefully.
28 vapier 1.1
29     Our Services are very diverse, so sometimes additional terms or product
30 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
34     Using our Services
35    
36     You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
37    
38 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
46     Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual
47 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
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 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
69     Your Google Account
70    
71     You may need a Google Account in order to use some of our Services. You
72 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
84     Privacy and Copyright Protection
85    
86 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
91     We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate
92 vapier 1.2 accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the U.S.
93     Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
94 vapier 1.1
95 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
100     Your Content in our Services
101    
102 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
106     When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give
107 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1 feedback or suggestions without obligation to you.
134    
135     About Software in our Services
136    
137 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
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 vapier 1.2 available to you. There may be provisions in the open source license that
155     expressly override some of these terms.
156 vapier 1.1
157     Modifying and Terminating our Services
158    
159     We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or
160 vapier 1.2 remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a Service
161     altogether.
162 vapier 1.1
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 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
172     Our Warranties and Disclaimers
173    
174 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
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 vapier 1.2 ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SERVICES, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE
182 vapier 1.1 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 vapier 1.2 SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, FOR ANY CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS, INCLUDING
199 vapier 1.1 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 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
214     About these Terms
215    
216 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
227 vapier 1.2 If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the
228     additional terms will control for that conflict.
229 vapier 1.1
230 vapier 1.2 These terms control the relationship between Google and you. They do not
231     create any third party beneficiary rights.
232 vapier 1.1
233     If you do not comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right
234 vapier 1.2 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 vapier 1.1
237 vapier 1.2 If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not
238     affect any other terms.
239 vapier 1.1
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.
