AdWords API Announcement: Updated API Terms and Conditions

Thursday, November 17, 2005

As part of our ongoing effort to improve the Google AdWords API beta program, we've recently updated our Terms and Conditions. For example, we’ve updated the sections that define token ownership and usage in order to ensure that quota allocations are distributed equitably based on spend.

Unfortunately, for legal reasons, we cannot interpret these changes for you. However, we have hosted a temporary copy of the old document in the event you would like to interpret the changes for yourself (this temporary copy will be removed on December 15, 2005). For your reference, some of the more extensive modifications were made to: section I; section II(1) and II(2); section III(1) and III(2)(b); and section IV(6).

Per both our past and current terms and conditions, Google retains the right to modify the terms and conditions at any time. Therefore, continued use of the API means that you accept these terms. You can refuse to accept the terms by ceasing to use the API.

Thank you for your continued support of Google AdWords and the AdWords API.

The Google AdWords API Team
