On January 5, 2022, we’re making some changes to our Terms of Service. These changes won’t affect the way you use Google services, but they’ll make it easier for you to understand what to expect from Google — and what we expect from you — as you use our services.
You can review the new terms here. At a glance, here’s what this update means for you:
- More clarity on what you can expect from Google and what we expect from you: We’re providing more examples to describe the mutually respectful conduct that we expect from all our users.
- Revised warranty disclaimers and limitations of liability: We’re including new warranty disclaimers and limitations of liability to reflect industry standards.
- Increased clarity and certainty in case of problems or disagreements: We changed some of the language in the Taking action in case of problems and Settling disputes, governing law, and courts sections to make it clearer what would happen in those situations.
- Improved readability: While our terms remain a legal document, we’ve done our best to make them easier to understand, including reorganizing some topics so that they’re easier to find.
If you use Family Link to manage a Google Account for someone else, please take some time to talk to them about these changes.
Thank you for using Google!
