+ANDROID SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT
+LICENSE AGREEMENT
+
+1. Introduction
+
+1.1 The Android Software Development Kit (referred to in this License Agreement as the "SDK" and
+specifically including the Android system files and packaged APIs) is licensed to you subject to the terms
+of this License Agreement. This License Agreement forms a legally binding contract between you and
+Google in relation to your use of the SDK.
+
+1.2 "Google" means Google Inc., a Delaware corporation with principal place of business at 1600
+Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.
+
+1.3 This version of the Android SDK is being offered to the developer community on an "Early Look" basis.
+With the help and input of the developer community, Google will continue to add new functionality and
+features to continually improve the SDK. Once the SDK reaches a more finished form, Google intends to
+release most of the components under the Apache v2.0 open source license.
+
+2. Accepting this License Agreement
+
+2.1 In order to use the SDK, you must first agree to this License Agreement. You may not use the SDK if you
+do not accept this License Agreement.
+
+2.2 You can accept this License Agreement by:
+
+ (A) clicking to accept or agree to this License Agreement, where this option is made available to you;
+or
+
+ (B) by actually using the SDK. In this case, you agree that use of the SDK constitutes acceptance of
+the Licensing Agreement from that point onwards.
+
+2.3 You may not use the SDK and may not accept the Licensing Agreement if you are a person barred from
+receiving the SDK under the laws of the United States or other countries including the country in which
+you are resident or from which you use the SDK.
+
+2.4 If you are agreeing to be bound by this License 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 License
+Agreement. If you do not have the requisite authority, you may not accept the Licensing Agreement or use
+the SDK on behalf of your employer or other entity.
+
+3. SDK License from Google
+
+3.1 Subject to the terms of this License Agreement, Google grants you a limited, worldwide, royalty-free, non-
+assignable and non-exclusive license to use the SDK solely to develop applications to run on the Android
+platform.
+
+3.2 You agree that Google or third parties own all legal right, title and interest in and to the SDK, including any
+Intellectual Property Rights that subsist in the SDK. "Intellectual Property Rights" means any and all rights
+under patent law, copyright law, trade secret law, trademark law, and any and all other proprietary rights.
+Google reserves all rights not expressly granted to you.
+
+3.3. Except to the extent required by applicable third party licenses, you may not copy (except for backup
+purposes), modify, adapt, redistribute, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, or create derivative works
+of the SDK or any part of the SDK. Except to the extent required by applicable third party licenses, you
+may not load any part of the SDK onto a mobile handset or any other hardware device except a personal
+computer, combine any part of the SDK with other software, or distribute any software or device
+incorporating a part of the SDK.
+
+3.4 Use, reproduction and distribution of components of the SDK licensed under an open source software
+license are governed solely by the terms of that open source software license and not this License
+Agreement.
+
+3.5 You agree that the form and nature of the SDK that Google provides may change without prior notice to
+you and that future versions of the SDK may be incompatible with applications developed on previous
+versions of the SDK. You agree that Google may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the SDK (or
+any features within the SDK) to you or to users generally at Google's sole discretion, without prior notice
+to you.
+
+3.6 Nothing in this License Agreement gives you a right to use any of Google's trade names, trademarks,

+4.2 You agree to use the SDK and write applications only for purposes that are permitted by (a) this License
+Agreement 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).
+
+4.3 You agree that if you use the SDK to develop applications for general public users, you will protect the
+privacy and legal rights of those users. If the users provide you with user names, passwords, or other login
+information or personal information, your must make the users aware that the information will be available
+to your application, and you must provide legally adequate privacy notice and protection for those users. If
+your application stores personal or sensitive information provided by users, it must do so securely. If the
+user provides your application with Google Account information, your application 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.
+
+4.4 You agree that you will not engage in any activity with the SDK, including the development or distribution
+of an application, that interferes with, disrupts, damages, or accesses in an unauthorized manner the servers,
+networks, or other properties or services of any third party including, but not limited to, Google or any
+mobile communications carrier.
+
+4.5 You agree that you are solely responsible for (and that Google has no responsibility to you or to any third
+party for) any data, content, or resources that you create, transmit or display through the Android platform
+and/or applications for the Android platform, and for the consequences of your actions (including any loss
+or damage which Google may suffer) by doing so.
+
+4.6 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 License 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.
+
+5. Your Developer Credentials
+
+5.1 You agree that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any developer credentials that may
+be issued to you by Google or which you may choose yourself and that you will be solely responsible for
+all applications that are developed under your developer credentials.

+6. Privacy and Information
+
+6.1 In order to continually innovate and improve the SDK, Google may collect certain usage statistics from the
+software including but not limited to a unique identifier, associated IP address, version number of the
+software, and information on which tools and/or services in the SDK are being used and how they are being
+used. Before any of this information is collected, the SDK will notify you and seek your consent. If you
+withhold consent, the information will not be collected.
+
+6.2 The data collected is examined in the aggregate to improve the SDK and is maintained in accordance with
+Google's Privacy Policy.
+
+7. Third Party Applications for the Android Platform

+not liable for any loss or damage that you may experience as a result of the use or access of any of those
+third party applications, data, content, or resources.
+
+7.2 You should be aware the data, content, and resources presented to you through such a third party
+application may be protected by intellectual property rights which are owned by the providers (or by other
+persons or companies on their behalf). You may not modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute or create
+derivative works based on these data, content, or resources (either in whole or in part) unless you have been
+specifically given permission to do so by the relevant owners.
+
+7.3 You acknowledge that your use of such third party applications, data, content, or resources may be subject
+to separate terms between you and the relevant third party. In that case, this License Agreement does not
+affect your legal relationship with these third parties.
