Terms and Conditions

Last modified: October 28, 2014

By using this API, you consent to be bound by these terms in addition to the Google APIs Terms of Service ("API ToS") at https://developers.google.com/terms.

Third-Party Brand Features

These terms do not grant you any right, title, interest in or to another party's trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features of any third party ("Third Party Brand Features"). If you would like to use any Third Party Brand Features, you are responsible for obtaining the necessary rights, licenses, or permissions.

Shareable Data Types

If you use Shareable Data Types, you may be required to comply with additional third-party terms. You must comply with all such terms as well as obtaining all necessary rights, permissions, and licenses required for using such Shareable Data Types. For example, if you intend to use NIKEFUEL in your app, you must agree with the NIKE+ Developer Terms. Please review the "Shareable Data Types" subsection in the Google Fit Documentation, where third-party documentation and terms regarding the use of Shareable Data Types, if applicable, are maintained.


You are responsible for obtaining all licenses or permissions you need to view, collect, store, or otherwise use location data in connection with Google Fit, including, if applicable, obtaining users' consent to the location terms of service and licenses required pursuant to Korean law.

Use Limitations

Google does not intend Google Fit to be a medical device. You may not use Google Fit in connection with any product or service that may qualify as a medical device pursuant to Section 201(h) of the Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic (FD&C) Act.

Unless otherwise specified in writing by Google, Google does not intend uses of Google Fit to create obligations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as amended (“HIPAA”). Google makes no representations that Google Fit satisfies HIPAA requirements. If you are or become a Covered Entity or Business Associate under HIPAA, you agree not to use Google Fit for any purpose or in any manner involving Protected Health Information (as defined by HIPAA) unless you receive prior written consent to such use from Google. You acknowledge that upon discovery of a violation of this provision, Google may terminate your use of Google Fit. You are solely responsible for any applicable compliance with HIPAA and agree to hold Google harmless for any uses contrary to this provision.

Content Management

You will take reasonable steps to ensure that the content you provide to Google Fit is reasonably accurate and that you have stored that content appropriately in Google Fit. Google may remove or refuse any data that we determine to be inaccurate, inappropriate, or misleading.

If your API Client accesses content from the com.google namespace of Google Fit and your API Client also collects content that could be appropriately stored on the com.google namespace, then you agree to the following:

  • Your API Client will store on the com.google namespace all the content that your API Client collects and that may be appropriately stored in the com.google namespace.
  • The content your API Client stores in the com.google namespace will be of at least the same level of granularity as the content accessed by your API Client. For example, if your API Client accesses step count from Google Fit on a per-day basis, then your API Client should also store step count on Google Fit on a per-day basis, rather than per week or per month.

We may provide you access to custom data fields in Google Fit. If you use these custom data fields, then you agree to the following:

  • You will only use the custom data fields to store content that cannot be appropriately stored in the com.google namespace.
  • You will only use the custom data fields to store content collected by your API Client that is reasonably related to fitness.
  • For each custom data field that you use, you will provide a reasonably accurate description for that custom data field.
  • If at any time content collected by your API Client could be appropriately stored in the com.google namespace, then you will store such content in the com.google namespace and not the custom data fields.

You are responsible for backing up your content. Google reserves the right to set limits on the length of time content may be accessible on Google Fit. Where reasonable, we will give you notice of those limits within the Google Fit documentation before we set them.

You are responsible for complying with any request by a user to remove content. Google is not responsible for removing content that has been stored on third-party services or your own services.

Additional Prohibitions on Content

You agree that you will not, and will not permit your end users, to use the content your API Client accesses from Google Fit in connection with any advertising, sponsorships, or promotions or share or sell that content to any data broker or information reseller.
