- Use of the Store.

The foregoing notwithstanding, Customer use of: (i) Google Cloud Platform or (ii) any Products subject to a separate Google Cloud Platform SKU (listed at https://cloud.google.com/skus/ ) are not governed by this Agreement and are governed by the Google Cloud Platform Terms of Service. Any Customer use of any Products in the Store labeled as “Google Click to Deploy” or “BYOL” is also not governed by this Agreement but governed by the third party software licenses associated with such Products. Customer agrees Products that are not subject to the Google Cloud Platform Terms of Service are not owned, created, or endorsed by Google, and Google makes no representation or warranty that such Product listings, descriptions, or displays are accurate, complete, or up to date. Google does not monitor, control, or assume any liability associated with Products and is not responsible for the quality, accuracy, or nature of such Products or the security practices or general privacy policies (including data collection or use policies) of the Vendors providing such Products. Subject to this Agreement, Customer may use the Store and Products during the Term.
- Accounts. Customer must have an Account to use the Store and is responsible for the information it provides to create the Account, the security and passwords for its Account, and for any use (or End User’s use) of its Account. If Customer becomes aware of any unauthorized use of its Account, Customer will notify Google as promptly as possible via firstname.lastname@example.org.
- New Applications and Services. Google may make new applications, tools, features, or functionality related to the Store available from time to time the use of which may be contingent upon Customer’s agreement to additional terms.
- Links to Third Party Sites. URL links made available on the Store web pages may allow Customer to leave the Store’s website to go to sites/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.
- Vendor Enforced Functionality. Customer agrees functionality related to Products (such as IAM) that are not enforced by Google (as labeled in the user interface for such functionality or otherwise detailed in Documentation) are enforced by the Vendors for such Products, and Google assumes no responsibility or liability for the effectiveness or accuracy of such Vendor enforced functionality.
- To the Store or Product. Google may make changes to the Store or Products at any time including terminating the availability or use of any Product or the Store.
- To the Agreement. Google may make changes to this Agreement, including Fees (and any linked documents) from time to time. Google will post any changes to this Agreement to the Terms URL, and all changes will be effective immediately after posting. Google advises Customer to review the latest version of the Agreement at the Terms URL before using the Store or any Products to stay informed of the most current Agreement terms applicable to such use. The foregoing notwithstanding, unless otherwise noted by Google, material changes to the Agreement will become effective 14 days after they are posted to the Terms URL, except changes that apply to new Store functionality or Products or are required by applicable law will be effective immediately after they are posted to the Terms URL. If Customer does not agree to any changes to the Agreement, Customer will stop using the Store and any Products. Any use of the Store or Product after the posting and effective date of any changes to the Agreement to the Terms URL will constitute Customer’s acceptance of the Agreement as modified.
- To Fees. Google may change Fees at any time.
- Payment Terms.
- Usage and Invoicing. Customer will pay for all Fees based on Customer’s (or End Users') use of the Products during the Term. Google will invoice Customer on a monthly basis for those Fees accrued at the end of each month unless otherwise stated in the Product description in the Store for any Product purchased. The foregoing notwithstanding, if Customer or End Users commit to pay any minimum amount of Fees (including for to any promotion or discount), Customer will be responsible for the payment of such Fees even after any termination of the Agreement. If Customer deploys any Product subject to consumption based billing, Customer instructs and allows Google to track Customer’s use of such Product and report such Product usage to the Vendor of such Product.
- Payment. All Fees are due as stated in the invoice. Customer’s obligation to pay all Fees applicable to the Term is non-cancellable. All payments due are in the currency stated in the invoice. Payments made via wire transfer must include the wire instructions required by Google.
- Taxes. Customer is responsible for any Taxes, and Customer will pay Google for the Products without any reduction for Taxes. If Google is required to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be invoiced to Customer, unless Customer provides Google with a timely and valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. In some jurisdictions the sales tax is due on the total purchase price at the time of sale and must be invoiced and collected at the time of the sale.
- Invoice Disputes & Refunds. Any invoice disputes must be submitted before the payment due date. If the parties determine that certain billing inaccuracies are attributable to Google, Google will not issue a corrected invoice, but will instead issue a credit memo specifying the incorrect amount in the affected invoice. If the disputed invoice has not yet been paid, Google will apply the credit memo amount to the disputed invoice and Customer will be responsible for paying the resulting net balance due on that invoice. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Customer waives all claims relating to Fees unless claimed within 60 days after charged (this does not affect any Customer rights with its credit card issuer). Google will not issue refunds, but may, in it its discretion, issue credit for the Products. Nothing in this Agreement requires Google to extend credit to any party
- Delinquent Payments. Delinquent payments may bear interest at the rate of one-and-one-half percent (1.5%) per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the payment due date until paid in full. Customer will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Google in collecting such delinquent amounts except where such delinquent amounts are due to Google’s billing inaccuracies. If Customer is delinquent on payments for any Product, Google may suspend any or all use of any or all of: that Product, the Store, or any other Product.
- No Purchase Order Number Required. Customer must pay all applicable Fees regardless of whether Google provides a purchase order number on Google’s invoice.
- Customer Obligations.

- Third Party License Terms. Products (which may include open source software) deployed or acquired via the Store may be subject to separate third party license agreements, and Customer, by agreeing to this Agreement, Customer also agrees to any applicable third party license agreements related to Customer’s use of any Products.
