  1. Introduction
    1. The Google Tag Manager Community Template Gallery galleries, available at http://tagmanager.google.com/gallery and in-product (as applicable) (collectively, the "Galleries") are owned and operated by Google LLC ("Google"). Submitters can have their Products (as defined below) displayed to Google Tag Manager or Google Tag Manager 360 (together, “GTM”) users via the Galleries for use in connection with GTM. A "Submitter" and/or "You/you" is defined as any person or company, including but not limited to developers, permitted to (i) display and distribute Products, (ii) submit Products for display on the Galleries from a third party repository, and/or (iii) contribute any modifications or additions to the Products, in each case, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement (as defined below). A "Product" is defined as any software, content (including but not limited to GTM tag templates), and/or digital materials created for use in connection with GTM and distributed via the Galleries.
  2. Accepting this Agreement
    1. Your use of the Galleries to display and distribute Products, your submission of Products for display on the Galleries and/or your contributions to such Products is governed by, and subject to, the Google Terms of Service (found at https://www.google.com/accounts/tos) and this agreement ("Submitter Agreement") (collectively, the "Agreement"). In addition, your use of the Galleries to display or distribute a Product is subject to the instructions or other policies governing your use of (or submission to) the Galleries made available by Google to you in writing from time to time (as, modified from time to time, and collectively, the "Program Policies"). This Submitter Agreement, the Program Policies, and the Google Terms of Service shall take precedence in that order in the event of a conflict between them (to the extent of such conflict).
    2. You may not submit Products to or otherwise contribute to, display or distribute Products on the Galleries if you do not accept this Agreement.
    3. You may not use the Galleries to display or distribute Products or otherwise contribute to or submit Products for display on the Galleries and may not enter into this Agreement if you are (a) not of legal age to form a binding contract with Google, or (b) a person or entity barred from using Google products or services under the laws of the United States or other countries including the country in which you are resident or from which you use Google products or services.
    4. You represent and warrant that you have full power, capacity, and authority to accept this Agreement. If you are agreeing to be bound by this Agreement on behalf of your employer or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have full legal authority to bind your employer or such entity to this Agreement. If you do not have the requisite authority, you may not accept the Agreement or use the Galleries on behalf of your employer or other entity. If you are an individual accepting the Agreement (either on your behalf or on behalf of a legal entity), you represent that you are at least 18 years of age.
    5. If you are providing a Product for display in the Galleries, you will be required to submit the Product (along with such contact information and Product details) in accordance with the instructions and methods outlined in the Program Policies.
  3. Submission to and Use of the Galleries by You
    1. Except for the license rights granted by you in Section 4 below, Google agrees that it obtains no right, title or interest from you (or your licensors) under this Agreement in or to any of the Products, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in those applications.
    2. You agree to submit or contribute to Products or otherwise use the Galleries only for purposes that are permitted by (a) this Agreement and any applicable Galleries policies and (b) any applicable law, regulation or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions (including any laws regarding the export of data or software to and from the United States or other relevant countries).
    3. You agree that if you use the Galleries to display your Product, you will protect the privacy and legal rights of users. If the users provide you with, or your Product accesses or uses, user names, passwords, or other login information or personal information, you must make the users aware that the information will be available to your Product, and you must provide legally adequate privacy notice and protection for those users. Further, your Product may only use that information for the limited purposes for which the user has given you permission to do so. If your Product stores personal or sensitive information provided by users, it must do so securely and only for as long as it is needed. But if the user has opted into a separate agreement with you that allows you or your Product to store or use personal or sensitive information directly related to your Product (not including other products or applications) then the terms of that separate agreement will govern your use of such information. If the user provides your Product with Google Account information, your Product may only use that information to access the user's Google Account when, and for the limited purposes for which, the user has given you permission to do so.
    4. Prohibited Actions.
      1.

      2. You agree not to access (or attempt to access) the Galleries by any means other than through the interface or approved method(s) that is provided by Google, unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement with Google.
      3. You may not divert users or provide links to any other site that mimics the Galleries or passes itself off as the Galleries.
      4. You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Google has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any Products you display on the Galleries (or any contributions you have made to a Product displayed therein) and for the consequences of your actions (including without limitation any loss or damage of data which Google or a user may suffer) by doing so.
      5. You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Google has no responsibility to you or to any third party for) any breach of your obligations under this Agreement, any applicable third party contract or terms of service, or any applicable law or regulation, and for the consequences (including any loss or damage which Google or any third party may suffer) of any such breach.

    4. You represent and warrant that you have all and will maintain all necessary rights to grant the licenses to the Products (including your contributions therein, as applicable) and any content contained in, accessed by, or transmitted through the Products to Google, its affiliates, and users of your Products.

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You grant to Google and its affiliates a limited, non-exclusive license during the term of this Agreement to display Your Brand Features furnished by You to Google under this Agreement solely for use in connection with the Galleries and in order to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement. Subject to Section 5(c), nothing in this Agreement gives You a right to use any of Google's trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names, or other distinctive brand features. Google and its affiliates may include Your Brand Features furnished by You to Google under this Agreement in presentations, marketing materials, press releases, and customer lists (which includes, without limitation, customer lists posted on Google websites) for purposes of marketing the Galleries.
    3. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Google grants You a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, worldwide, royalty-free license during the term of this Agreement to display the Brand Features provided by Google to You solely for the purpose of promoting Your participation in the Galleries.

  6. Product Takedowns, Review, and Updates
    1. You may remove your Products that you have submitted for display on the Galleries at any time, but you must comply with this Agreement for any Products previously displayed on the Galleries that have been accessed or downloaded by users. Removing your Products from future display on the Galleries does not (a) affect the license rights of users who have previously accessed or downloaded your Products, (b) remove your Products from GTM or from anywhere where previously accessed or downloaded Products are stored on behalf of users, or (c) change your obligation to support Products that have been previously accessed or downloaded by users.
    2. While Google is not obligated to monitor the Products or their content, Google may at any time review or test your Products and their source code for compliance with this Agreement, the Program Policies, and any other applicable terms, obligations, laws, or regulations, and may use automated means to conduct such review. Google retains the right to refuse to include a Product on the Galleries in its sole discretion. You agree that any information you give to Google will always be accurate, correct and up to date. As part of the specification for your Product, Google may ask that you include in the file for your Product information such as your name and email address. Google may use this information when featuring the Product in our directory or for other uses. If Google is notified by you or otherwise becomes aware and determines in its sole discretion that a Product or any portion thereof or your Brand Features (a) violates the intellectual property rights or any other rights of any third party; (b) violates any applicable law or is subject to an injunction; (c) is pornographic, obscene or otherwise violates Google's hosting policies or other terms of service as may be updated by Google from time to time in its sole discretion; (d) is being distributed by you improperly; (e) may create liability for Google or any third party; (f) is deemed by Google to have a virus or is deemed to be malware, spyware or have an adverse impact on Google's or a third party's network; (g) violates the terms of this Agreement or the Program Policies; (h) the display of the Product is impacting the integrity of Google servers (i.e., users are unable to access such content or otherwise experience difficulty); (i) is deemed by Google to add undue risk to GTM's or the Galleries' users data or impair the user experience of GTM or the Galleries; or (j) is subject to user complaints, Google may: prevent the Product from being made available in the Galleries; remove the Product from the Galleries; remotely disable or remove the Product from GTM or from anywhere where previously downloaded Products are stored on behalf of users (if applicable); flag, filter, or modify related materials (including but not limited to descriptions, screenshots, or metadata); or reclassify the Product at its sole discretion. Google reserves the right to suspend or bar any Product from the Galleries at its sole discretion.
    3. From time to time, Google may check for available updates to Products, including but not limited to bug fixes or enhanced functionality. If you upload an update for your Product for display in the Galleries, you agree that such update will be automatically requested, downloaded, and installed without further notice to you. Google makes no guarantees regarding the timing of such updates. For the avoidance of doubt, updates to Products are subject to the same terms and conditions as the Products, including without limitation, Section 6b of this Agreement.
    4. Google is not in any way responsible for the subsequent use or misuse by users who access your Product. You acknowledge that the submission of a Product (or any contributions made by you therein) for display in the Galleries may be accessed or used by third parties and you agree to such use and any applicable reproductions or distributions of the Product (including any applicable contributions) or derivative works thereof, in any medium, with or without modification.
