While Pre-GA Offerings are not Services, the Customer's use of Pre-GA Offerings is subject to the terms of the Agreement applicable to Services, as amended by this Section 6.

    1. 6.1 Access to and Use of Pre-GA Offerings.

      1. (a) Test Applications. The Customer may apply to be a test user of Pre-GA Offerings by submitting the application available via the Admin Console or otherwise from Google ('Test Application(s)').

If the Customer has accepted or the parties have otherwise agreed to Google's then-current terms describing data protection and processing obligations with respect to Customer Data as stated at https://cloud.google.com/terms/data-processing-addendum (the 'Cloud Data Processing Addendum' or 'CDPA' ), the CDPA will apply to Pre-GA Offerings as 'Services' for purposes of the CDPA and, for clarity, this Section 6 will form part of the 'Agreement' referred to in Section 5.2 (Compliance with Customer's Instructions) of the CDPA, subject to the following amendments:

        1. (i) The Customer acknowledges that, for purposes of Section 6.1 (Deletion by Customer) of the CDPA and to the extent permitted by applicable law, the functionality of the Pre-GA Offerings may not allow deletion of Customer Test Data during the period during which the Customer is permitted to use the Pre-GA Offering ('Pre-GA Term'), but that Customer Test Data will be deleted upon expiry of the Term in accordance with Section 6.2 (Return or Deletion When Term Ends) of the CDPA;

        2. (ii) Unless stated otherwise in Specific Test Terms: (A) information about Sub-processors (as defined in the CDPA) engaged in relation to Pre-GA Offerings, including their functions and locations, will be made available in writing by Google upon request from the Customer; and (B) Google will inform the Customer of the engagement during the Pre-GA Term of any new third-party Sub-processor engaged by Google in relation to Pre-GA Offerings (including the name and location of the Sub-processor and its activities) by sending an email to the Notification Email Address before the Sub-processor starts processing any Customer Test Data. The Customer may, as its sole and exclusive remedy if the Customer objects to the Sub-processor, cease using the applicable Pre-GA Offering.

      4. (c) No Data Location or Access Transparency. Customer Test Data processed under this Section 6 will not be subject to any data location requirements (as described in Section 1 (Data Regions) of these Service-Specific Terms) or access transparency requirements (as described at https://support.google.com/a/answer/9230474).

      5. (d) Use Restriction for Government Customers. Unless authorised in writing by Google, the following customers may only use test or experimental data with Pre-GA Offerings and are prohibited from using any 'live' or production data in connection with Pre-GA Offerings: US or other government customers, including federal, national, state, provincial or local government or regulatory entities or agencies and excluding customers that are educational institutions.

      6. (e) Use Restriction for Protected Health Information. The Customer may not use Pre-GA Offerings to process Protected Health Information as defined in HIPAA.

    2. 6.2 Change, Suspension or Discontinuance. Pre-GA Offerings (including any of their features) may be changed, suspended or discontinued at any time without prior notice to the Customer.

    3. 6.3 Disclaimer. PRE-GA OFFERINGS ARE PROVIDED 'AS IS', WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND, AND ARE NOT COVERED BY ANY SLA OR GOOGLE INDEMNITY.

    5. 6.5 Termination. Google may terminate the Customer's use of a Pre-GA Offering at any time with written notice to the Customer, including to allow other customers to use that Pre-GA Offering.

  7. 7. Verification Using Domain Email Address. The following additional terms apply only when a Domain Email Address (rather than a Domain Name) is verified to use the Services:

    1. 7.1 Inviting End Users. The Customer may invite other users with a Domain Email Address to use the Services. If those users accept the Customer's invitation to use the Services, they will be considered the Customer's End Users under the Agreement.

    2. 7.2 Domain Name Verification.

      1. (a) Assumption of Control by Verifying Party. Any person or entity may verify the Domain Name corresponding to the Domain Email Address at any time ('Verifying Party'). The Verifying Party will take ownership and control of End User Accounts corresponding to the Domain Name and all associated data within such End User Accounts immediately after verifying the Domain Name. The Customer and all End Users will be notified when the Domain Name is verified.

      2. (b) Administration After Domain Name Verification. A Verifying Party will have certain permissions with respect to the Customer's Account and all such End User Accounts, as described in the documentation.

    3. 7.3 Data Deletion. At any time before the Verifying Party takes ownership and control of the Domain Name and all associated End User Accounts (including the Customer's Account), the Customer or its End Users will be able to delete or export Customer Data and/or delete its End User Account(s) in a manner consistent with the functionality of the Services. After the Verifying Party takes ownership and control of the Domain Name and all associated End User Accounts (including the Customer's Account), then, notwithstanding any term to the contrary in the Cloud Data Processing Addendum, the Customer or its End Users may not be able to delete End User Account(s) or delete or export any Customer Data depending on the administration of the Services.

    4. 7.4 Data Processing Instruction. If the Customer takes no action to delete or export any Customer Data before the Verifying Party takes ownership and control of the Domain Name and all associated End User Accounts (including the Customer's Account), then, notwithstanding Section 6.2 (Return or deletion when term ends) of the Cloud Data Processing Addendum, the Customer acknowledges that these Service-Specific Terms document the Customer's instructions to Google to: (a) retain after termination of the Agreement as described in Section 7.6 (Termination after domain verification) all Customer Data that has not been deleted by the Customer prior to such termination; and (b) make such retained Customer Data available to the Verifying Party.

    5. 7.5 Consent to Administration. Where applicable, the Customer agrees to allow: (a) the Verifying Party to have the access and capabilities described in the Agreement; and (b) Google to provide the Verifying Party with the access and capabilities described in the Agreement.

    6. 7.6 Termination After Domain Verification. Where the Verifying Party is a third party, this Agreement will automatically terminate when the Verifying Party takes ownership and control of the Domain Name and all associated End-User Accounts (including the Customer's Account). For clarity, this section does not affect any end user rights that the Verifying Party may grant under its (separate) Google Workspace agreement.

    7. 7.7 Services Limitations. Some Services, features and functionality may not be available unless and until the Domain Name is verified.

8. Google Telephony Services.

      • (i) Description of emergency dialling service. End Users of the two-way dialling features of Google Voice are capable of calling and receiving calls from the emergency services free of charge.

  • 8.9 Suspension. In addition to the suspension rights described in the Google Telephony Agreement, GTSP may block incoming and outgoing Google Telephony Services calls or messages if GTSP reasonably determines that the Customer or any End User has used Google Telephony Services to generate or facilitate bulk or automated messages, or unsolicited commercial messages.
