Using product graphics

Screenshots of Most Google Products

You don't need our permission when you want to use an unaltered screenshot of our homepage (Google.com) or the search results page for instructional or illustrative purposes. This applies for print (book, magazine, journal, newspaper) or digital (web page, DVD, CD) formats. Please see below for exceptions to this rule for some of our other products.

When we say "unaltered", we mean no superimposed graphics, photos, or ad copy on the screenshot and no changes to the way our product looks. We also don't give permission for advertisers to use our Google search results page in connection with advertising products or services (for instance, showing a top ranking on Google).

We ask that you put the following tagline beneath any image featuring a Google product screenshot or data:

Search box

If you'd like to use a Google search box on your website, we offer several options. You don't need to obtain permission to use an unaltered Google-branded search box on your site. However, you cannot use a Google-branded search box in your marketing creative, so please do not plan on featuring one in your advertising or other marketing collateral without our permission.

Google Maps and Google Earth

For permission to use Google Maps and Google Earth, we've built a tool which will help you understand the requirements for different use cases. The tool will ask you up to four questions about the content you plan to use and how you will use it. It will then display the relevant usage requirements and guidelines.
