You must continue to comply with this Agreement for any Listing already distributed through Marketplace including but not limited to refund requirements. Removing your Listing from future distribution via Marketplace does not (a) affect the license rights of End Users who have previously purchased or installed your Listing or (b) change your obligation to deliver or support Listing that has been previously purchased or installed by users. If you remove your Listing, GitHub will not disclose your reason for the removal.

4.2 GitHub Review and Takedowns. GitHub may review or test your Listing for compliance with this Agreement, GitHub ToS, and any other applicable terms, obligations, laws, or regulations. GitHub retains sole and absolute discretion over what Listings are included on Marketplace. You may be required to provide information about yourself (such as identification or contact details) as part of the registration process for Marketplace, or as part of your continued use of Marketplace. You agree that any information you give to Marketplace will be accurate, correct and up to date. As part of the specification for your Listing, GitHub may ask that you include in the file for your Listing information such as your name and email address. GitHub may use this information when featuring the Listing in our directory or for other uses.

If GitHub is notified by you or otherwise becomes aware and determines, in its sole discretion, that a Listing or any portion thereof or your Brand Features:

  • (a) violates the terms of this Agreement or the ToS;
  • (b) the display of the Listing is impacting the integrity of GitHub servers (i.e., users are unable to access such content or otherwise experience difficulty);
  • (c) is deemed by GitHub to add undue risk to Marketplace End Users’ data or impair the user experience of Marketplace or GitHub; or
  • (d) is subject to End User complaints in regards to your breach of your EULA,

GitHub may: suspend the transfer of Personal Data to your Developer Product; prohibit the collection and processing of Personal Data via your Developer Product; remove the Listing from Marketplace; flag, filter, or modify related materials (including but not limited to descriptions, screenshots, or metadata); or reclassify the Listing at its sole discretion. If GitHub takes any of these actions on your Listing, you may appeal GitHub's action through the GitHub Appeal and Reinstatement Process

4.3 Developer Product Updates. From time to time, GitHub may check for available updates to any Listing, including but not limited to bug fixes or enhanced functionality. If you update your Listing to Marketplace, you agree that such update will be automatically requested, downloaded, and installed without further notice to you. GitHub makes no guarantees regarding the timing of such updates. Updates to a Listing are subject to the same terms and conditions as the Listing.

4.4 End-User Takedowns. If an End-User uses your Developer Product in a way that violates the Terms, then we have the right to suspend or terminate that End-User's access to the Developer Product without any liability to you.


5.1 Developer must inform End Users of the Personal Data that will be transmitted to the Developer Application from the Service and that Developer terms will control the privacy, security or integrity of such Personal Data.
