Google Earth Outreach Training Materials License Agreement
Last updated: May 20, 2011
Thank you for your interest in the Google Earth Outreach Training Materials.
The Google Earth Outreach Training Materials License Agreement gives people the ability to use certain Google Earth Outreach training presentations, workbook materials, and other learning aids (the "Earth Outreach Training Materials") to create or enhance their own Google-related mapping product trainings and tutorials.
Though it’s fine to charge your trainees or users a fee for your training programs in general, please don't charge your trainees or users an additional or incremental fee to access the Earth Outreach Training Materials specifically, and please don’t resell or redistribute for a fee the Earth Outreach Training Materials on a standalone basis.
To help Google make the Earth Outreach Training Materials more useful, we encourage you to share your content, edits, enhancements, and ideas with the community by responding to Google’s email survey regarding the Earth Outreach Training Materials and participating in the Google Earth Outreach Trainers Network: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/google-earth-outreach-trainers.
