Data Studio Galleries Terms of Service (User)

  1. Introduction
    1. The Data Studio galleries, available at https://developers.google.com/datastudio/connector/gallery, https://datastudio.google.com/gallery and in-product (as applicable) (collectively, the "Galleries") are owned and operated by Google LLC. ("Google"). Your use of the Galleries is governed by a legal agreement between you and Google consisting of the Google Terms of Service (found at https://www.google.com/policies/terms/) and these Galleries Terms of Service (together, called the "Terms"). These Galleries Terms of Service and the Google Terms of Service shall take precedence in that order in event of a conflict between them (to the extent of such conflict).
    2. You can use the Galleries to browse, locate, use, copy, or download "Products" (defined as software, content (including but not limited to Data Studio reports), and digital materials created for use in connection with Data Studio and distributed via the Galleries) for use in connection with Data Studio. Each Product is made available by the developer and/or creator (either, a "Submitter") of the Product, which is typically a third party not affiliated with Google. Google is not responsible for any Product on the Galleries that originates from a source other than Google, and you should ensure that you read and agree to any additional terms that apply to those Products before accessing or using them.
    3. You accept these Terms by either (a) clicking to agree or accept where these options are presented to you or (b) by actually using the Galleries. Do not use the Galleries unless you agree to the Terms. If you are accepting on behalf of a legal entity, you represent and warrant (a) you have full authority to bind such entity to these Terms; (b) you have read and understand the Terms, and (c) you agree, on behalf of the party you represent, to these Terms. If you don't have the legal authority to bind, do not click the "I Accept" button or use the Galleries. If you are an individual accepting the Terms (either on your behalf or on behalf of a legal entity), you represent that you are at least 18 years of age.
  2. Providing the Galleries
    1. Google may stop providing the Galleries or any features within the Galleries to you (permanently or temporarily) at Google's sole discretion, without prior notice to you. Your access to Products you may have previously downloaded and/or accessed through the Galleries may or may not be affected by the unavailability of the Galleries, as such access may be controlled by the Submitter of each Product. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, please note that Submitters may also stop providing certain Products to you generally (permanently or temporarily) at Submitter's sole discretion, without prior notice to you. In such cases, if a Submitter stops providing a certain Product, your ability to access that Product may be revoked. Google may disable access to your account for, for example, security reasons or due to your material violation of the Terms. If your account is disabled, you may be prevented from accessing the Galleries, your account details or any Products/files that are stored with your account.
    2. Support for the use and operation of the Galleries is provided by Google in the user interface of the Galleries. Google does not provide customer support for Products distributed by Submitters on the Galleries.
    3. Google retains the right, at its sole discretion, to remove any such Product from the Galleries which Google discovers to be in violation of any legal agreement, law, regulation or policies.
  3. Use of the Galleries
    1. To access certain services and/or Products in the Galleries, you may be required to provide information about yourself such as your name and address. It is your responsibility to ensure that any such information you provide to Google is accurate, correct and up to date.
    2. You may only use the Galleries for purposes that are permitted by (a) the Terms and (b) any applicable law, regulation or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the jurisdiction where you use the Galleries or as noted in Section 12f below. If you access and/or use certain content, you acknowledge and agree that the such content (a) is meant only to serve as a suggestion and (b) is not a substitute for professional advice or specific, authoritative knowledge or guidance. Google does not promise that the Products will work for your purposes or that it is free from viruses or other defects.
    3. You must not access (or attempt to access) the Galleries by any means other than through the interface that is provided by Google, unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement with Google. For example, you must not access (or attempt to access) the Galleries through any automated means (including use of scripts, crawlers, or similar technologies).
    4. You must not engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Galleries (or the servers and networks which are connected to the Galleries).

    5. Unless you have been specifically permitted to do so in a separate agreement with Google, you must not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade or resell the Galleries for any purpose. With respect to Products which are third party connectors, you must not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade or resell such Products from the Galleries for any purpose, unless you have been specifically permitted to do so in a separate agreement with the Submitter of such Product. With respect to Products which are Data Studio reports, you must not sell, trade, or resell such Products from the Galleries for any purpose, unless you have been specifically permitted to do so in a separate agreement with the Submitter of such Product.
    6.

    8. Google or third parties own all right, title and interest in and to the Galleries and the Products available through the Galleries, including without limitation all applicable Intellectual Property Rights in the Products.

Products, including Products developed and made available by third party Submitters, may communicate with Google or third-party servers from time to time to check for available updates to the Products such as bug fixes, patches, enhanced functions, missing plug-ins and new versions. Installing these Products means that such updates may be automatically requested and installed without further notice to you.

  12. General Legal Terms
    1. Google intends to rely only upon these Terms in relation to your use of the Galleries or Products.

    4. These Terms do not confer any benefits on any third party unless it expressly states that it does.

(2) If you use the Galleries or Products available through the Galleries for personal purposes: The courts in some countries will not apply California law to some types of disputes.

Otherwise, you agree that the laws of California, U.S.A., excluding California's choice of law rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services. Similarly, if the courts in your country will not permit you to consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the courts in Santa Clara County, California, U.S.A., then your local jurisdiction and venue will apply to such disputes related to these terms. Otherwise, all claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the services will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Santa Clara County, California, U.S.A., and you and Google consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
