1 ANDROID SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT
2 LICENSE AGREEMENT
3
4 1. Introduction
5
6 1.1 The Android Software Development Kit (referred to in this License Agreement as the "SDK" and
7 specifically including the Android system files and packaged APIs) is licensed to you subject to the terms
8 of this License Agreement. This License Agreement forms a legally binding contract between you and
9 Google in relation to your use of the SDK.
10
11 1.2 "Google" means Google Inc., a Delaware corporation with principal place of business at 1600
12 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.
13
14 1.3 This version of the Android SDK is being offered to the developer community on an "Early Look" basis.
15 With the help and input of the developer community, Google will continue to add new functionality and
16 features to continually improve the SDK. Once the SDK reaches a more finished form, Google intends to
17 release most of the components under the Apache v2.0 open source license.
18
19 2. Accepting this License Agreement
20
21 2.1 In order to use the SDK, you must first agree to this License Agreement. You may not use the SDK if you
22 do not accept this License Agreement.
23
24 2.2 You can accept this License Agreement by:
25
26 (A) clicking to accept or agree to this License Agreement, where this option is made available to you;
27 or
28
29 (B) by actually using the SDK. In this case, you agree that use of the SDK constitutes acceptance of
30 the Licensing Agreement from that point onwards.
31
32 2.3 You may not use the SDK and may not accept the Licensing Agreement if you are a person barred from
33 receiving the SDK under the laws of the United States or other countries including the country in which
34 you are resident or from which you use the SDK.
35
36 2.4 If you are agreeing to be bound by this License Agreement on behalf of your employer or other entity, you
37 represent and warrant that you have full legal authority to bind your employer or such entity to this License
38 Agreement. If you do not have the requisite authority, you may not accept the Licensing Agreement or use
39 the SDK on behalf of your employer or other entity.
40
41 3. SDK License from Google
42
43 3.1 Subject to the terms of this License Agreement, Google grants you a limited, worldwide, royalty-free, non-
44 assignable and non-exclusive license to use the SDK solely to develop applications to run on the Android
45 platform.
46
47 3.2 You agree that Google or third parties own all legal right, title and interest in and to the SDK, including any
48 Intellectual Property Rights that subsist in the SDK. "Intellectual Property Rights" means any and all rights
49 under patent law, copyright law, trade secret law, trademark law, and any and all other proprietary rights.
50 Google reserves all rights not expressly granted to you.
51
52 3.3. Except to the extent required by applicable third party licenses, you may not copy (except for backup
53 purposes), modify, adapt, redistribute, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, or create derivative works
54 of the SDK or any part of the SDK. Except to the extent required by applicable third party licenses, you
55 may not load any part of the SDK onto a mobile handset or any other hardware device except a personal
56 computer, combine any part of the SDK with other software, or distribute any software or device
57 incorporating a part of the SDK.
58
59 3.4 Use, reproduction and distribution of components of the SDK licensed under an open source software
60 license are governed solely by the terms of that open source software license and not this License
61 Agreement.
62
63 3.5 You agree that the form and nature of the SDK that Google provides may change without prior notice to
64 you and that future versions of the SDK may be incompatible with applications developed on previous
65 versions of the SDK. You agree that Google may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the SDK (or
66 any features within the SDK) to you or to users generally at Google's sole discretion, without prior notice
67 to you.
68
69 3.6 Nothing in this License Agreement gives you a right to use any of Google's trade names, trademarks,
70 service marks, logos, domain names, or other distinctive brand features.

74
75 4. Use of the SDK by You
76

84 States or other relevant countries).
85
86 4.3 You agree that if you use the SDK to develop applications for general public users, you will protect the
87 privacy and legal rights of those users. If the users provide you with user names, passwords, or other login
88 information or personal information, your must make the users aware that the information will be available
89 to your application, and you must provide legally adequate privacy notice and protection for those users. If
90 your application stores personal or sensitive information provided by users, it must do so securely. If the
91 user provides your application with Google Account information, your application may only use that
92 information to access the user's Google Account when, and for the limited purposes for which, the user has
93 given you permission to do so.
94
95 4.4 You agree that you will not engage in any activity with the SDK, including the development or distribution
96 of an application, that interferes with, disrupts, damages, or accesses in an unauthorized manner the servers,
97 networks, or other properties or services of any third party including, but not limited to, Google or any
98 mobile communications carrier.

100 4.5 You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Google has no responsibility to you or to any third
101 party for) any data, content, or resources that you create, transmit or display through the Android platform
102 and/or applications for the Android platform, and for the consequences of your actions (including any loss
103 or damage which Google may suffer) by doing so.
104
105 4.6 You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Google has no responsibility to you or to any third
106 party for) any breach of your obligations under this License Agreement, any applicable third party contract
107 or Terms of Service, or any applicable law or regulation, and for the consequences (including any loss or
108 damage which Google or any third party may suffer) of any such breach.
109
110 5. Your Developer Credentials
111
112 5.1 You agree that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any developer credentials that may
113 be issued to you by Google or which you may choose yourself and that you will be solely responsible for
114 all applications that are developed under your developer credentials.

121 used. Before any of this information is collected, the SDK will notify you and seek your consent. If you
122 withhold consent, the information will not be collected.
123

134 third party applications, data, content, or resources.
135

138 persons or companies on their behalf). You may not modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute or create
139 derivative works based on these data, content, or resources (either in whole or in part) unless you have been
