If you pay by debit card and your payment results in an overdraft or other fee from your bank, you alone are responsible for that fee.
7.4 You are obligated to fulfill your payment obligations for the Services in a timely fashion. If you fail to do so, Google will be entitled to a compensation equaling the amount due plus interest at the highest rate permissible under applicable law.
