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 <accounts.google.com/AccountChooser?Emailemail@example.com&continue=https://policies.google.com/terms/update%3Futm_source%3Dtos2022-email%26utm_medium%3Demail>. We’ve also provided a summary of the key changes <accounts.google.com/AccountChooser?Emailfirstname.lastname@example.org&continue=https://policies.google.com/terms/changes%3Futm_source%3Dtos2022-email%26utm_medium%3Demail>. 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. We’re also providing more transparency about how we develop, improve, and update our digital content, services, and goods – including more detail about the reasons we make changes and legally-required updates, the advanced notice we provide to you, and your right to withdraw from your contract with us. – *Legal guarantee*: We’re summarizing the legal guarantees that you receive under EEA consumer laws when you use our digital content, services, and goods. – *Withdrawal right*: We’re providing information about your legal right to withdraw from the terms within 14 days of agreeing to them if you’re a consumer based in the European Economic Area (EEA). We’re also including a copy of the EU Model Instructions on Withdrawal in case you want to exercise that right. – *Additional definitions*: We’re adding more explanatory text to help you understand certain legal concepts that we refer to in our terms, including “commercial guarantee”, “legal guarantee”, and “lack of conformity”. – *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.
