G Suite Marketplace Terms of Service

  1. Introduction

    1.1 The G Suite Marketplace ("Market") is owned and operated by Google Inc. Your use of the Market is governed by a legal agreement between you and Google consisting of the Google Terms of Service (found at https://www.google.com/policies/terms/) and these G Suite Marketplace Terms of Service (together called the "Terms"). In addition, your use of the Market is subject to the Program Policies (found at http://code.google.com/googleapps/marketplace/policies.html). The G Suite Marketplace Terms of Service, G Suite Marketplace Program Policies, and Google Terms of Service shall take precedence in that order in the event of a conflict between them, to the extent of such conflict.

    1.2 You may use G Suite Marketplace to browse, locate, or download “Products” (defined as software, content and digital materials created for use in connection with G Suite and distributed via the Market) for use in connection with G Suite. Each Product is made available by the developer of the Product, which is typically a third party not affiliated with Google. Google is not responsible for any Product on the Market that originates from a source other than Google, and you should ensure that you read and agree to any additional terms that apply to those Products before accessing or using them. Additionally, some Products may be made available to you at no charge while others may require the payment of fees directly to the developer of the Product. None of these payments are processed by Google or through the Market. You are solely responsible for all fees associated with purchases you make outside of the Market. Google is not responsible for establishing the price of Products available through the Market and does not have the ability to issue any refunds or credits for Products purchased from third parties.

    1.3 You accept the Terms by either (a) clicking to agree or accept where these options are presented to you, or (b) actually using the G Suite Marketplace. Please do not use the Market unless you agree to the Terms.

    1.4 If you are accepting the Terms on behalf of your employer or another entity, you represent and warrant that: (a) you have full legal authority to bind your employer or such entity to the Terms; (b) that you have read and understand the Terms; and (c) that you agree, on behalf of the party that you represent, to the Terms. If you don't have the legal authority to bind, please do not click the "I Accept" button or use the G Suite Marketplace.

    1.5 If you are a G Suite reseller, you: (a) will ensure that your G Suite customer ("Customer") is notified of and accepts the Terms, with no alteration or amendment (unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by Google); and (b) will not accept (or allow any other third party to accept) the Terms on behalf of a Customer, except where you have been expressly authorized to do so on the Customer's behalf.

    1.6 In order to use the Market you must be 13 years of age or older. If you are between 13 and 18 years of age, you must have your parent or legal guardian's permission to use the Market.

  2. Google's Provision of G Suite Marketplace

    2.1 Google may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Market (or any features within the Market) to you or to users generally at Google's sole discretion, without prior notice to you. Your access to Products you have previously downloaded through the Market will not necessarily be affected by the unavailability of the Market, as such access is controlled by the developer of each Product.

    2.2 Google may disable access to your account - for example, for security reasons or due to your material violation of the Terms. If your account is disabled, you may be prevented from accessing the Market, your account details or any Products or other files that are stored with your account.

    2.3 Support for the use and operation of the Market (including how to find, download, and remove Products) is provided by Google in the user interface of the Market application. Google does not provide customer support for Products distributed by third party developers on the Market. Each developer is responsible for determining the level of customer support the developer provides and you should contact the developer directly.

    2.4 From time to time, Google may discover a Product on the Market that violates the G Suite Marketplace Developer Distribution Agreement or other legal agreements, laws, regulations or policies. In such an instance Google retains the right to remove such a Product from the Market or G Suite at its sole discretion.
