(“Google”, “we” or “us”), located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View California 94043, USA, and is subject to the Google Terms of Service (“Google ToS”). Google Play is a “Service” as defined in the Google ToS, and these Google Play Terms of Service are additional terms which apply to the use of Google Play. Your use of Google Play and the digital content available on it is subject to these Google Play Terms of Service and the Google ToS (which together we refer to as the “Terms”).
If there is any conflict between the Google Play Terms of Service and the Google ToS, the Google Play Terms of Service shall prevail.
Your use of the Google Play store requires that you agree to the following terms. Please read them carefully. If you do not understand the Terms, or do not accept any part of them, then you should not use the Google Play store. Some products and features may be not available in all countries. Please see the Google Play Help Center for more information.
2. Provision of Google Play
Direct, Agency and App Sales. When you buy “Content” (defined as data files, applications, written text, mobile device software, music, audio files or other sounds, photographs, videos or other images) on Google Play you will buy it either:
(a) directly from Google (a “Direct Sale”);
(b) from the provider of the Content (the “Provider”), where Google is acting as an agent for the Provider (an “Agency Sale”); or
(c) in the case of Android apps, from the Provider of the app (an “App Sale”).
Each time that you purchase Content, you enter into a separate sale contract:
(d) based on the Terms (as applicable) with Google (in the case of a Direct Sale);
(e) based on the Terms (as applicable) with the Provider of the Content you have purchased (in the case of Agency Sales); or
(f) with the Provider of the Content you have purchased (in the case of App Sales).
The separate sale contract in (e) or (f) above (as applicable) is in addition to your contract with Google Inc. for the use of the Service (i.e. these Google Play Terms of Service).
For Agency Sales the statement, in the Google ToS, that the Google ToS “do not create any third party beneficiary rights”, does not apply to your use of the Service.

For instance, you may incur such fees if you use services provided through Google Play on or through third-party services or devices. You are responsible for all such fees.
Updates. You may need to install updates to Google Play or related Google software that we introduce from time to time to use Google Play and to access or download Content. Content originating from Google may communicate with Google servers from time to time to check for available updates to the Content and to the functionality of Google Play, such as bug fixes, patches, enhanced functions, missing plug-ins and new versions (collectively, “Updates”).

If you do not agree to such automatically requested and received Updates then please do not use the Google Play store or install this Content.

Trials of Magazines News Content and Music. Subscribing to a free trial for a magazine or new content on Google Play Newsstand or for music (including as part of your purchase of a subscription for a magazine or music) gives you access to the subscription benefits for that magazine for free for a specified trial period. At the end of such trial period, you will be charged the price of the first period of the subscription and will continue to be charged until you cancel your subscription. To avoid being charged, you must cancel before the end of the trial period. If you cancel during the trial period you will retain access to the magazine issues that you access during a free trial period, but you will not retain access to news content or Music Subscription Content (as defined below) that you access during a free trial period unless you become a paid subscriber. Access to free trials may be limited to a certain number of free trials for each user during a given period. To avoid any charges, you must cancel before the end of the trial period; for more information on cancelling subscriptions, see the section titled ”Cancellations” below in this section 5.
Trials of Apps. Subscribing to a trial for an Android app gives you access to the subscription benefits for that app for free for a duration specified by the application developer. At the end of the trial period, you will be charged the price of the first period of the subscription and will continue to be charged until you cancel your subscription. To avoid being charged, you must cancel before the end of the trial period. Once you cancel your trial, you will immediately lose access to the relevant app and any subscription privileges.
Cancellations. If you purchase an auto-recurring periodic subscription (whether monthly, annual or another period) to Content, you may cancel that subscription at any time before the end of the applicable billing cycle, and the cancellation will apply to the next period. For example, if you purchase a monthly subscription, you may cancel that subscription at any time during any month of the subscription, and the subscription will be cancelled as of the following month. You will not receive a refund for the current billing period, except in the event of a defective product (as set out in section 6 below), or as otherwise set out out in these Terms. With respect to magazine or news content subscriptions on Google Play Newsstand, you will continue to receive Content and updates (if applicable) of the relevant subscription during the remainder of the current billing period. After that billing period ends, your access to previously delivered magazine issues will not be affected by the cancellation, but your access to paid news content will terminate at the end of the billing period during which your subscription is cancelled. With respect to music subscriptions, you will continue to have access to Music Subscription Content (as defined in Section 7 below) during the remainder of the current billing period; however, your access to Music Subscription Content will terminate at the end of the billing period during which your subscription is cancelled. Additional refund policies for music and periodicals are set out in sections 7 and 10 below, respectively.
Price Changes. When you purchase a subscription, you will initially be charged at the rate applicable at the time of your agreement to subscribe. If the price of the subscription increases later, Google will notify you. The increase will apply to the next payment due from you after the notice, provided that you have been given at least 10 days’ prior notice before the charge is made. If you are given less than 10 days’ prior notice, the price increase will not apply until the payment after the next payment due.
Declining Price Changes. If you do not wish to pay the increased price for a subscription, you may cancel the subscription in the manner described in the Google Play help center and you will not be charged further amounts for the subscription, provided you have notified us before the end of the current billing period. In some cases where the Provider increases the price of a subscription Google may cancel your subscription unless you agree to re-subscribe at the new price. If your subscription is cancelled and you later decide to re-subscribe, you will initially be charged at the then current subscription rate.

7. Music on Google Play
Introduction. Google Play includes certain music-related products and services, which are described in greater detail below and defined as “Music Products”, “Music Subscription Content”and “Music Locker Services”.
Music Products; Music Subscription Content. The Google Play store allows you to browse, preview, stream, purchase, download, recommend and use a variety of digital music and music-related content such as music files, music video files, previews, clips, artist information, user reviews, professional third-party music reviews and other digital content (“Music Products”). Certain Music Products may be accessible to you by purchasing (or receiving a free trial of) a subscription to a music subscription service made available via Google Play (“Music Subscription Content”). Music Products may be owned by Google or its third-party partners and licensors and may contain watermarks or other embedded data. For clarity, all Music Products constitute “Products” as defined in Section 1 above.
Stored Content. You can use Google Play to store digital content (such as music files, related metadata and album art) in Music Storage through the Music Software, as each is defined below (“Stored Content”). For the avoidance of doubt, “Music Products” do not include Stored Content. Stored Content may include both files that you upload directly to Music Storage and/or files that Google “scans and matches” to files stored locally on your Device.
Music Locker Services. Google Play may provide you with access to (a) server space that you can use to store music and associated data files, including Music Products and Stored Content (“Music Storage”) and/or (b) software applications (including web, desktop and mobile applications) and related services that allow you to upload, manage, access and play music through Music Storage (“Music Software”). Music Storage and Music Software are collectively referred to in these Terms as the “Music Locker Service”. For clarity, you may be given access to Stored Content and Music Subscription Content through the same user interface.
Use of Music Locker Services. By storing Music Products and Stored Content in Music Storage, you are storing a unique copy of such content and requesting Google to retain it on your behalf and to make it accessible to you through your Google account. By using the Music Locker Services, you are requesting that Google make all of the necessary functions and features of the Music Locker Services available to you in order to facilitate your use of Music Products and Stored Content. Additionally, by accessing or using Music Products and Stored Content through the Music Software, you are initiating and performing the corresponding functions on Google’s servers, together with any related steps necessary to achieve them, through the Music Locker Services. You understand that Google, in performing the required technical steps at your direction to provide you with the Music Locker Services, may (a) transmit Music Products and Stored Content over various networks and in various media and (b) make such changes to Music Products and Stored Content as are necessary to conform and adapt it to the technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services or media. You confirm and warrant to Google that you have the necessary rights to store in Music Storage any Stored Content that you direct Google to upload or store in Music Storage, and to instruct Google to perform the actions described in this section.
Cancelling a Music Purchase; Refunds. You have the right to cancel each purchase of a Music Product from Google (including a music subscription) for a refund within 7 working days of the day after that Music Product becomes available for you to download or stream, provided that, with respect to music subscription free trials: (i) you may cancel your subscription at any time during a free trial period (as set out in section 5 above) and (ii) you will not have the foregoing 7-day cancellation right once the paid portion of your subscription has commenced. Once you download or stream any Music Product that you purchase, you no longer have the right to cancel your purchase of that Music Product (unless the Music Product is defective). If Google grants to you a refund for a music subscription, the refund amount will be pro-rated to reflect remaining term of the subscription. Following Google’s provision of a refund to you, you will no longer have the right to access the applicable Music Product.
Other Google Subscription Services. You may receive access to a Google Play music subscription as part of a subscription to another Google product; additionally, you may receive access to other Google subscription products as part of a Google Play music subscription. The details of your access to such other Google subscription products will be presented to you before you complete your music subscription purchase. Your use of Google Play and any Google Play music subscription product is governed solely by these Terms, and not the terms of any other Google product, including any other Google product through which you receive access to a Google Play music subscription.
Social Recommendations. When you purchase Music Products, you may be given the opportunity to share all or a portion of the Music Products to your profile on Google+ or other Google-approved social networks or online destinations, as determined by Google in its sole discretion (“Social Recommendation”). Your use of Social Recommendations shall be subject to the Terms and any other terms and conditions applicable to the social networks or online destinations to which you share such Social Recommendations. Google may impose limitations on your Social Recommendations. For example, Google may render the Music Product associated with any Social Recommendation as a limited-length preview rather than a full-length play.
Rights to Stored Content. You retain any rights that you already hold in Stored Content. For the avoidance of doubt, Stored Content is not subject to the license grant to Google in the section of the Google Terms of Service titled “Your Content in our Services.”
Geographic Restrictions. The Music Locker Services and Music Products are currently available only in some countries. You agree that you will not present any false, inaccurate or misleading information in an effort to misrepresent yourself as a resident of a supported country, and you will not attempt to circumvent any restrictions on access to or availability of the Music Locker Services or Music Products.
Compliance With Settings. You must observe and comply with any settings or parameters set by Google or a copyright holder in connection with Music Products. For example, Google or the copyright holders may correct errors in Music Products, add additional features or change the security features or regional availability of the Music Products. Where these changes are made, the Music Products may automatically update.
Third-Party Provisions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, the third parties who license their musical or other content to Google as Music Products or for other use in connection with the Google Play store (including Providers in the case of Agency Sales) are intended third party beneficiaries under these Terms solely with respect to the specific provisions of these Terms that directly concern their content (“Third-Party Provisions”), and solely for the purpose of enabling such third parties to enforce their rights in such content. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in these Terms confers a third-party beneficiary right upon any party, with respect to any provision that falls outside the Third Party Provisions, which includes but is not limited to any provisions or agreements incorporated by reference, or that may be referenced without incorporation, in these Terms.
Third-Party Software and Data. Information regarding third-party software (including open source) and data in the Music Locker Services can be obtained at the following location:http://music.google.com/about/thirdparty.html.
