SecOps Service Specific Terms
These SecOps Service Specific Terms are incorporated into the agreement under which Google has agreed to provide SecOps Services (as described at https://cloud.google.com/terms/secops/services) to Customer (the “Agreement”). If the Agreement authorizes the resale or supply of SecOps Services under a Google partner or reseller agreement or program, then all references to Customer in the SecOps Service Specific Terms mean Partner or Reseller (as applicable), and all references to Customer Data in the SecOps Service Specific Terms mean Partner Data. Capitalized terms used but not defined in the SecOps Service Specific Terms have the meaning given to them in the Agreement.
a. Improvements. To respond to the evolving threat landscape and provide current and state-of-the-art cybersecurity, as part of providing the Services we process Customer Data to improve the security, threat detection, prevention, and response capabilities of such Services.
b. Location. In the Order Form or by other means if made available by Google, Customer may select to store Customer Data in a specific Region or Multi-Region as detailed in the SecOps Services Locations Page (“Data Location Selection”), and Google will store that Customer Data at rest only in the selected Region/Multi-Region. If a Data Location Selection is not made by Customer, Google may (subject to the Data Processing and Security Terms) process and store Customer Data anywhere Google or its agents maintain facilities. The Services do not limit the locations from which Customer or Customer End Users may access Customer Data or to which they may move Customer Data. For clarity, Customer Data does not include resource identifiers, attributes, or other data labels.
2. General Software Terms. The following terms apply to all Software:
a. License. Google grants Customer a royalty-free (unless otherwise stated by Google), non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable license during the Term to reproduce and use the Software ordered by Customer on systems owned, operated, or managed by or on behalf of Customer in accordance with (i) the Agreement, and (ii) if applicable, the Scope of Use. Customer may authorize its and its Affiliates' employees, agents, and subcontractors (collectively, “Software Users”) to use the Software in accordance with this section (License), so long as Customer remains responsible. Customer may make a reasonable number of copies of the Software for back-up and archival purposes. For clarity, Software does not constitute Services.
b. Documentation. Google may provide Documentation describing the appropriate operation of the Software, including a description of how Software is properly used, and whether and how the Software collects and processes data. Customer will comply with any restrictions in the Documentation regarding Software use.
c. Compliance With Scope of Use. Within 30 days of Google’s reasonable written request, Customer will provide a sufficiently detailed written report describing its usage in accordance with the applicable Scope of Use of each Software product used by Customer and its Software Users during the requested period. If requested, Customer will provide reasonable assistance and access to information to verify the accuracy of Customer’s Software usage report(s).
d. Other Warranties and Compliance. Each party represents and warrants that it will comply with all laws and regulations applicable to its provision or use of the Software, as applicable. Customer will: (i) ensure that Customer and its Software Users' use of the Software complies with the Agreement and the restrictions in the Agreement applying to Customer's use of the Services; (ii) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent and terminate any unauthorized access to or use of the Software; and (iii) promptly notify Google of any unauthorized access to or use of the Software of which Customer becomes aware. If the Software contains open source or third-party components, those components may be subject to separate license agreements, which Google will make available to Customer. Customer is solely responsible for complying with the terms of any third-party sources from which Customer elects to migrate its workloads onto the Services, and represents and warrants that such third-party sources permit the use of Software to migrate applications away from such sources. If the Agreement terminates or expires, then Customer will stop using all Software and delete it from Customer's systems.
3. Premium Software Terms. The following terms apply only to Premium Software:
a. Introduction. Google makes certain Software available under the Agreement described as “Premium Software” in an Order Form or as otherwise identified as Premium Software by Google (“Premium Software”). Customer will pay applicable Fees for any Premium Software it obtains as described in the applicable Order Form. Premium Software is Google’s Confidential Information.
b. Software Warranty. Google warrants to Customer that for one year from its delivery, Premium Software will perform in material conformance with the applicable Documentation. This warranty will not apply if (i) Customer does not notify Google of the non-conformity within 30 days after Customer first discovers it, (ii) Customer modifies Premium Software or uses it in violation of the Agreement, or (iii) the non-conformity is caused by any third-party hardware, software, services, or other offerings or materials, in each case not provided by Google.
If Google breaches this warranty, then Google will, in its discretion, repair or replace the impacted Premium Software at no additional charge. If Google does not believe that repairing or replacing would be commercially reasonable, then Google will notify Customer and (A) Customer will immediately cease use of the impacted Premium Software and (B) Google will refund or credit any prepaid amounts for the impacted Premium Software and Customer will be relieved of any then-current commitment to pay for future use of the impacted Premium Software. Without limiting the parties’ termination rights, this section (Software Warranty) states Customer’s sole remedy for Google’s breach of the warranty in this section (Software Warranty).
c. Software Indemnification. Google’s indemnity obligations under the Agreement with respect to allegations of infringement of third-party Intellectual Property Rights apply to Premium Software, and Customer’s indemnity obligations under the Agreement with respect to Customer’s use of the Services apply to Customer’s use of Premium Software. In addition to any other indemnity exclusions in the Agreement, Google’s indemnity obligations will not apply to the extent the underlying allegation arises from modifications to Premium Software not made by Google or use of versions of Premium Software that are no longer supported by Google.
d. Technical Support. Unless otherwise specified by Google, Google will make TSS available for Premium Software for an additional charge, in accordance with the TSS Guidelines.

With respect to Pre-GA Offerings, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, neither Google nor its suppliers will be liable for any amounts in excess of the lesser of (A) the limitation on the amount of liability stated in the Agreement or (B) $25,000. Nothing in the preceding sentence will affect the remaining terms of the Agreement relating to liability (including any specific exclusions from any limitation of liability). Customer's access to and use of any Pre-GA Offering is subject to any applicable Scope of Use. Either party may terminate Customer's use of a Pre-GA Offering at any time with written notice to the other party. Certain Pre-GA Offerings may be subject to additional terms stated below.
