GCP Marketplace Agreement

Google Cloud Marketplace Terms of Service

DATED: 05/24/2021 | Previous Versions

If your billing account is in India, please review Section 16 (Regional Versions), which specifies the terms that apply to your use of Marketplace.

These Google Cloud Marketplace Terms of Service (together, the "Agreement") are entered into by Google and the entity or person agreeing to these terms ("Customer") and govern Customer's access to and use of the Marketplace and Vendor Products. "Google" has the meaning given at https://cloud.google.com/terms/google-entity.

Customer’s use of Google Products is governed by the agreement under which Google provides Customer with access to and use of Google Cloud Platform (“GCP Agreement”) and not this Agreement.

This Agreement is effective when Customer purchases a Vendor Product on the Marketplace (the "Effective Date"). If you are accepting on behalf of Customer, you represent and warrant that (i) you have full legal authority to bind Customer to this Agreement; (ii) you have read and understand this Agreement; and (iii) you agree, on behalf of Customer, to this Agreement.

  1. Use of the Marketplace.
    1. General. During the Term and subject to this Agreement, Customer may access and use the Marketplace in order to purchase Vendor Products.
    2. Accounts. Customer must have a GCP Account to use the Marketplace and Vendor Products and is responsible for the information it provides to create the account, the security of its passwords for the GCP Account, and for any use of its GCP Account.
    3. Linked Sites. URL links made available via the Marketplace may allow Customer to leave the Marketplace website to go to sites and web pages not controlled by Google (“Linked Site(s)”). Google is not responsible for the Linked Sites (or any weblink or URL contained on them) in any manner, including related content and security or privacy practices. Any access Google provides to Linked Sites is done solely as a Customer convenience, and the inclusion of any link to a Linked Site does not imply endorsement by Google of the Linked Site.
  2. Payment Terms. Vendor Products will be included in Customer’s invoice for Google Cloud Platform services. All invoicing and payment terms in the GCP Agreement will apply to Vendor Products.
  3. Customer Obligations.
    1. Compliance. Customer will (a) ensure that Customer and its End Users' use of the Marketplace complies with the Agreement, and (b) promptly notify Google of any unauthorized use of, or access to, the Marketplace.
    2. Third Party License Terms. Customer may be required to accept a Vendor Agreement or additional related terms with a Vendor applicable to its use of a Vendor Product. Access to and use of a BYOL Product is governed by the third-party software license agreements associated with that BYOL Product.
    3. Vendor Access to Customer Data. Certain Vendor Products may require the Vendor to access Customer Data from the Customer’s GCP Account in order to provide the Vendor Product, as described in the relevant product listing. By purchasing or enabling any such Vendor Product, Customer instructs Google (pursuant to Customer’s GCP Agreement) to share Customer Data with the Vendor of such Vendor Product in order for the Vendor to provide the Vendor Product and in connection with any technical support requests under Section 6 (Support for Vendor Products). Customer acknowledges that Google will have no further access to or control over any Customer Data once shared with the Vendor and that Vendor’s access, use, storage, deletion and processing of such Customer Data will be governed by a Vendor Agreement or other terms governing Vendor’s provision of the Vendor Product to Customer, and not this Agreement.
    4. Restrictions. Customer will not, and will not allow End Users to, (a) copy, modify, or create a derivative work of the Marketplace or Vendor Products; (b) reverse engineer, decompile, translate, disassemble, or otherwise attempt to extract any or all of the source code of, the Marketplace or Vendor Products (except to the extent such restriction is expressly prohibited by applicable law); (c) sell, resell, sublicense, transfer, or distribute any or all of the Marketplace or Vendor Products; or (d) access or use the Marketplace or Vendor Products in violation of the AUP or in a manner intended to avoid incurring Fees or to circumvent usage limits or quotas.
    5. Copyright. Google provides information to help copyright holders manage their intellectual property online, but Google cannot determine whether something is being used legally without input from the copyright holders. Google will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and may terminate repeat infringers in appropriate circumstances as required to maintain safe harbor for online service providers under the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If Customer believes a person or entity is infringing Customer's or its End User's copyrights and would like to notify Google, Customer can find information about submitting notices, and Google's policy about responding to notices, at https://www.google.com/dmca.html.
  4. Suspension. If Google becomes aware that Customer's or any End User's use of the Marketplace or any Vendor Product violates the AUP, Google will notify Customer and request that Customer correct the violation. If Customer fails to correct the violation within the timeframe listed in the request (or within 24 hours if no timeframe is listed), then Google may suspend all or part of Customer's access to or use of the Marketplace or Vendor Products until the violation is corrected. Additionally, any Google suspension pursuant to the GCP Agreement may impact Customer’s ability to access Vendor Products.
  5. Intellectual Property Rights. Except as expressly stated in this Agreement, this Agreement does not grant either party any rights, implied or otherwise, to the other's content or any of the other's intellectual property. As between the parties, Customer owns all Intellectual Property Rights in Customer Data, and Google owns all Intellectual Property Rights in the Marketplace.
  6. Support for Vendor Products.
    1. Vendor Products Generally. Except as otherwise specified in Section 6.2 (Google Supported Products), any technical support for Vendor Products will be provided by the applicable Vendor on terms agreed to between the Vendor and Customer. Subject to Section 6.2 (Google Supported Products), Google will not be responsible or liable for any technical support to Customer for any Vendor Products, including any security updates or patches provided by Vendor.
    2. Google Supported Products. For certain Vendor Products, as described in the applicable product listing page, Google (and not the Vendor) will provide all frontline technical support (“Google Supported Products”). In order to receive access to technical support for Google Supported Products, Customer must purchase a technical support package for Google Cloud Platform pursuant to the Customer’s GCP Agreement. Google will provide Customer with the same level of technical support for Google Supported Products that Customer has purchased for Google Cloud Platform (e.g., Development, Production or Enterprise level support) as described at https://cloud.google.com/terms/tssg/. Any Customer support requests directed to a Vendor for Google Supported Products may be rerouted to Google for frontline support, unless the Customer has purchased a separate support package from the Vendor for such Google Supported Product, in which case Customer may also be entitled to receive frontline support from the Vendor in accordance with the relevant support terms between Customer and Vendor.
  7. Modifications.
    1. To the Marketplace. Google may make commercially reasonable updates to the Marketplace from time to time.
    2. To the Agreement. Google may make changes to this Agreement from time to time. Google will provide notice of material changes and unless otherwise noted by Google, such changes will become effective 30 days after they are posted, except to the extent the changes apply to new functionality in which case they will be effective immediately.
      1. If Customer does not agree to the revised Agreement, Customer may stop using the Marketplace and Vendor Products. Customer may also terminate this Agreement for convenience under Section 8.4 (Termination for Convenience). Customer's continued use of the Marketplace after such material change will constitute Customer's consent to such changes. Google will post any modification to this Agreement to https://console.developers.google.com/tos?id=launcher
      2. If a change under this Section 7.2 has a material adverse impact on Customer during an active subscription term for a Vendor Product and is not a result of Google complying with a court order or applicable law, Customer may notify Google within sixty (60) days of the change that Customer objects to the change. Upon such notice, Customer will remain governed by the terms in effect immediately prior to the change until the end of the then-current subscription term.
    3. To Fees. Google may change Fees for Vendor Products upon 30 days’ notice, provided that any Fee changes for Subscription Products will not become effective during any then-current subscription term.
    4. Removal and Discontinuation of Vendor Products.
      1. Removal of Vendor Products. Subject to Section 7.4(b) (Discontinuation of Subscription Products), Google may remove a Vendor Product from the Marketplace at any time. Google will use reasonable efforts to provide at least six (6) months notice before a Vendor Product is removed.
      2. Discontinuation of Subscription Products. If a removed Vendor Product is a Subscription Product, Google will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify customers with active subscriptions to a Subscription Product at least three (3) months before its discontinuation. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the duration a Subscription Product will remain available after being removed from the Marketplace will be determined by the applicable Vendor and not by Google. If a Subscription Product purchased by Customer is discontinued before its applicable subscription term has expired, then (i) if Customer has prepaid for use of the Subscription Product for the duration of subscription term, Google will provide a prorated refund of any prepaid Fees to Customer, and (ii) if Customer has committed to paying fees for the duration of the subscription term, Customer’s commitment will be relieved for the remaining portion of the subscription term.
  8. Confidential Information.
    1. Obligations. The recipient will only use the disclosing party's Confidential Information to exercise the recipient’s rights and fulfill its obligations under the Agreement, and will use reasonable care to protect against the disclosure of the disclosing party's Confidential Information. The recipient may disclose Confidential Information only to its Affiliates, employees, agents, or professional advisors (“Delegates”) who need to know it and who have agreed in writing (or in the case of professional advisors are otherwise bound) to keep it confidential. The recipient will ensure that its Delegates use the received Confidential Information only to exercise rights and fulfill obligations under this Agreement.
    2. Required Disclosure. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in this Agreement, the recipient or its Affiliate may also disclose Confidential Information to the extent required by applicable Legal Process.
  9. Term and Termination.
    1. Agreement Term. The term of this Agreement (the “Term”) will begin on the Effective Date and continue until the Agreement is terminated as stated in this Section 9 (Term and Termination).
    2. Termination for Breach. To the extent permitted by applicable law, either party may terminate this Agreement immediately on written notice if (a) the other party is in material breach of the Agreement and fails to cure that breach within 30 days after receipt of written notice of the breach or (b) the other party ceases its business operations or becomes subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within 90 days.
    3. Termination for Convenience. Customer may stop using the Marketplace or any Vendor Product at any time. Subject to Customer fulfilling all its financial commitments under this Agreement (including payment of all Fees for the remaining duration of the subscription term for a Subscription Product), Customer may terminate this Agreement for its convenience. Upon termination, Customer must cease use of the applicable Vendor Products. Google may terminate this Agreement for its convenience at any time with 30 days' prior written notice to Customer, provided Google will provide a prorated refund of any Fees that Customer has prepaid for a Subscription Product if termination occurs prior to the end of the subscription term.
    4. Effect of Termination. If the Agreement is terminated, then (a) all rights and access to the Marketplace and Vendor Products will terminate, unless otherwise described in this Agreement, and (b) all Fees owed by Customer to Google are immediately due upon Customer’s receipt of the final electronic bill or as set forth in the final invoice. If the Agreement terminates before the end of any outstanding subscription term for any Subscription Product for any reason other than Google's uncured material breach in accordance with the Agreement, all unpaid Fees remaining for the duration of the subscription term will become due and payable upon termination.
  10. Publicity. Customer may state publicly that it is a customer of the Marketplace, consistent with Google's Guidelines for Third Party Use of Google brand resources at https://www.google.com/permissions/guidelines.html.
