Orkut Application Program Terms of Service

Last modified:
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.
  1. Fees

    You may not charge users any fee for the use of your application, unless you have entered into a separate agreement with Google or obtained Google's written permission.

  2. API Client policies

    Your API Client and its content shall adhere to the Orkut Community Standards at http://www.google.com/support/orkut/bin/answer.py?answer=16198, Orkut Developer Guidelines at https://developers.google.com/orkut/rel/guidelines and Orkut Privacy Policy at http://www.orkut.com/html/en-US/privacy.orkut.html.

  3. Jurisdiction

    If you are in Brazil, the laws of Brazil, excluding any applicable choice of law rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or related to these terms or the Services.

  4. Deprecation Policy

    Google will announce if it intends to discontinue or make backwards incompatible changes to this API or Service. Google will use commercially reasonable efforts to continue to operate those Orkut Application Platform versions and features identified at http://developers.google.com/orkut/rel/orkut-api-list without these changes until April 20, 2015, unless (as Google determines in its reasonable good faith judgment):

    • required by law or third party relationship (including if there is a change in applicable law or relationship), or
    • doing so could create a security risk or substantial economic or material technical burden.

    The above policy is the "Deprecation Policy."

    After April 20, 2015, this Deprecation Policy will not apply.
