Learn more about our updated Terms of Service

We’re improving our Terms of Service and making them easier for you to
understand. The changes will take effect on March 31, 2020, and they won’t
impact the way you use Google services. And, because the United Kingdom
(UK) is leaving the European Union (EU), Google LLC will now be the service
provider and the data controller responsible for your information and for
complying with applicable privacy laws for UK consumer users.

For more details, we’ve provided a summary of the key changes
and Frequently Asked Questions
And the next time you visit Google, you’ll have the chance to review and
accept the new Terms. At a glance, here’s what this update means for you:

– Improved readability: While our Terms remain a legal document, we’ve done
our best to make them easier to understand, including by adding links to
useful information and providing definitions.

– Better communication: We’ve clearly explained when we’ll make changes to
our services (like adding or removing a feature) and when we’ll restrict or
end a user’s access. And we’ll do more to notify you when a change
negatively impacts your experience on our services.

– Adding Google Chrome, Google Chrome OS and Google Drive to the Terms: Our
improved Terms now cover Google Chrome, Google Chrome OS, and Google Drive,
which also have service-specific terms and policies to help you understand
what’s unique to those services.

– Your service provider and data controller is now Google LLC: Because the
UK is leaving the EU, we’ve updated our Terms so that a United States based
company, Google LLC, is now your service provider instead of Google Ireland
Limited. Google LLC will also become the data controller responsible for
your information and complying with applicable privacy laws. We’re making
similar changes to the terms of service for YouTube, YouTube Paid Services,
and Google Play. These changes to our Terms and Privacy Policy don’t affect
your privacy settings or the way we treat your information (see the Privacy
for details). As a reminder, you can always visit your Google Account
<myaccount.google.com> to review your privacy settings and manage
how your data is used.

If you’re the guardian of a child under the age required to manage their
own Google Account <support.google.com/accounts/answer/1350409> and
you use Family Link <families.google.com/familylink/> to manage
their use of Google services, please note that when you accept our new
Terms, you do so on their behalf as well, and you may want to discuss these
changes with them.

And of course, if you don’t agree to our new Terms and what we can expect
from each other as you use our services, you can find more information
about your options in our Frequently Asked Questions

Thank you for using Google’s services.
