Google Maps Platform License Agreement
This Google Maps Platform License Agreement (the "Agreement")
is made and entered into between Google (as defined in Section
21 (Definitions)) and the entity or person agreeing to these
This Agreement is effective as of the date Customer clicks to
accept the Agreement, or enters into a Reseller Agreement if
purchasing through a Reseller (the "Effective Date"). If you are
accepting on behalf of Customer, you represent and warrant that:
(a) you have full legal authority to bind Customer to this
Agreement; (b) you have read and understand this Agreement; and
(c) you agree, on behalf of Customer, to this Agreement. If you
do not have the legal authority to bind Customer, please do not
click to accept. This Agreement governs Customer's access to and
use of the Services.
1. Provision of the Services.
1.1 Use of the Services in Customer Applications.
Google will provide the Services to Customer in accordance
with the Agreement, and Customer may use the Services in
Customer Application(s) in accordance with Section 3 (License).
1.2 Admin Console; Projects; API
Keys. Customer will administer the Services through
the online Admin Console. To access the Services, Customer must
create Project(s) and use its API key(s) in accordance with the
1.3 Accounts. Customer must have an Account.
Customer is responsible for: (a) the information it provides in
connection with the Account; (b) maintaining the confidentiality
and security of the Account and associated passwords; and (c)
any use of its Account.
1.4 Customer Domains and Applications. Customer
must list in the Admin Console each authorized domain and
application that uses the Services. Customer is responsible for
ensuring that only authorized domains and applications use the
1.5 New Features and Services. Google may: (a)
make new features or functionality available through the
Services and (b) add new services to the "Services" definition
(by adding them at the URL stated under that definition).
Customer’s use of new features or functionality may be
contingent on Customer’s agreement to additional terms
applicable to the new feature or functionality.
1.6.1 To the Services. Subject to Section 9
(Deprecation Policy), Google may make changes to the Services,
which may include adding, updating, or discontinuing any
Services or portion or feature(s) of the Services. Google will
notify Customer of any Significant Backwards Incompatible Change
to the Services.
1.6.2. To the Agreement. Google may make changes
to the Agreement, including pricing and any linked documents.
Unless otherwise noted by Google, material changes to the
Agreement will become effective 30 days after notice is given,
except (a) materially adverse SLA changes will become effective
90 days after notice is given; and (b) changes applicable to new
Services or functionality, or required by a court order or
applicable law, will be effective immediately. Google will
provide notice for materially adverse changes to any SLAs by:
(i) sending an email to the Notification Email Address; (ii)
posting a notice in the Admin Console; or (iii) posting a notice
to the applicable SLA webpage. If Customer does not agree to the
revised Agreement, Customer should stop using the Services.
Google will post any modification to this Agreement to the Terms
2. Payment Terms.
2.1 Free Quota. Certain Services are provided to
Customer without charge up to the Fee Threshold, as
2.2 Online Billing. At the end of the
applicable Fee Accrual Period, Google will issue an
electronic bill to Customer for all charges accrued above the
Fee Threshold based on Customer’s use of the Services during the
previous Fee Accrual Period. For use above the Fee Threshold,
Customer will be responsible for all Fees up to the amount set
in the Account and will pay all Fees in the currency set forth
in the invoice. If Customer elects to pay by credit card, debit
card, or other non-invoiced form of payment, Google will charge
(and Customer will pay) all Fees immediately at the end of the
Fee Accrual Period. If Customer elects to pay by invoice (and
Google agrees), all Fees are due as stated in the invoice.
Customer’s obligation to pay all Fees is non-cancellable.
Google's measurement of Customer’s use of the Services is final.
Google has no obligation to provide multiple bills. Payments
made via wire transfer must include the bank information
provided by Google. If Customer has entered into the Agreement
with GCL, Google may collect payments via Google Payment
Limited, a company incorporated in England and Wales with
offices at Belgrave House, 76 Buckingham Palace Road, London,
SW1W 9TQ, United Kingdom.
2.3.1 Customer is responsible for any Taxes, and Customer will
pay Google for the Services without any reduction for Taxes. If
Google is obligated 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 states 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. If Customer is
required by law to withhold any Taxes from its payments to
Google, Customer must provide Google with an official tax
receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such
withholding. If under the applicable tax legislation the
Services are subject to local VAT and the Customer is required
to make a withholding of local VAT from amounts payable to
Google, the value of Services calculated in accordance with the
above procedure will be increased (grossed up) by Customer for
the respective amount of local VAT and the grossed up amount
will be regarded as a VAT inclusive price. Local VAT amount
withheld from the VAT-inclusive price will be remitted to the
applicable local tax entity by the Customer and Customer will
ensure that Google will receive payment for its services for the
net amount as would otherwise be due (the VAT inclusive price
less the local VAT withheld and remitted to applicable tax
2.3.2 If required under applicable law, Customer will provide
Google with applicable tax identification information that
Google may require to ensure its compliance with applicable tax
regulations and authorities in applicable jurisdictions.
Customer will be liable to pay (or reimburse Google for) any
taxes, interest, penalties or fines arising out of any
mis-declaration by the Customer.
2.4 Invoice Disputes & Refunds. Any invoice
disputes must be submitted before the payment due date. If
Google determines that Fees were incorrectly invoiced, then
Google will issue a credit equal to the agreed amount. 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). Nothing in the Agreement obligates Google to extend
credit to any party.
2.5 Delinquent Payments; Suspension. If
Customer’s payment is overdue, then Google may (a) charge
interest on overdue amounts at 1.5% per month (or the highest
rate permitted by law, if less) from the Payment Due Date until
paid in full, and (b) Suspend the Services or terminate the
Agreement. Customer will reimburse Google for all reasonable
expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Google in
collecting overdue payments except where such payments are due
to Google’s billing inaccuracies.
2.6 No Purchase Order Number Required. Google is
not required to provide a purchase order number on Google’s
invoice (or otherwise).

non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, license to
use the Services in Customer Application(s).

Service usage levels, abuse any free Service quotas, or offer
