Additional Prohibitions

In addition to Section 4 (Prohibitions) of the API ToS, the following terms apply:

  • Publishing API: You will only use the Publishing API for your own activities related to your distribution of products under the Google Play Developer Distribution Agreement. You will not utilize a third party's Developer Account to access the Publishing API, use the Publishing API to publish apps on behalf of a third party through a developer tool or service, or share your own Developer Account to allow a third party to access the Publishing API on your behalf. A violation of this provision may result in suspension, termination of access to the Publishing API, your Developer Account, and/or suspension or termination of third-party apps created, uploaded, published, distributed or updated in violation of this provision.

  • voidedPurchases API: You will only use the voidedPurchases API to revoke access to voided in-app purchases (refunded by Google or charged back by the issuer) and to mitigate fraud. The data shared via the voidedPurchases API is considered Google confidential information under the API TOS and may not be disclosed except as expressly permitted. A violation of this provision may result in suspension or termination of access to the voidedPurchases API or your Developer Account.
