Why has Facebook been Added in Accounting Education

>> May 31, 2010

I added Facebook in accounting education because it has many benefits. I can explain  main benefits of Facebook one of the best social networking site.

1. Education is the part of society. We all are social animal. One is our father, other is our mother and next is our teacher. We are playing different relation with others. With facebook, we can make new friends and create good relationship with them. Aim of education is also to create good relationship with human being. Only after selfless help can be given to others, we can get success for coming in this earth.

2. Facebook is nothing but collection of social capital. I am also teaching social accounting in one of topic of accounting in which I tell that it is very necessary to record all the data of benefits to society which is given by business. Facebook is providing free service to help who are needed. In face book, you can create two thing. One is friendship and other is what do you like. Right side is one part of facebook widget in which you will connect accounting education, if you like its any content. If you like it, it means you love education. So, I have added facebook in accounting education.

3. Facebook Connect allows you access to a vast amount of data on the websites with just one click. Using this data the sites may even redefine the way they display user generated content. Now if you are going to shop for an audio system on Amazon, access to the reviews of various people and most importantly your friends can be crucial.

4. Allows members to check students who are taking the same class, living within the same area, or coming from the same academy. My teaching area is very vast. I want to contribute my teaching services at international level where every student can talk and take help from me. So, I was needed facebook and few days ago, I have added its social widget.

5. There are about 10,000 students (professionals and young professionals not yet included) who are joining into Facebook every day. This is regardless of the age, race and country. So, I think, I can more easily connect my students with facebook.

Gross Profit

I have added gross profit in Accounting Glossary because gross profit is the accounting term. In simple words, gross profit is excess of sales over cost of goods sold. If we deduct total cost of goods sold before adding other indirect expenses from total sales of company, it will be gross profit of company.

Gross profit Formula

Gross Profit = Total Sales  - Cost of Goods sold

Note :

a) Total sales = cash sales + credit sales - sales return

b) Cost of Goods Sold = Opening stock + purchase + direct expenses - closing stock.

Importance of Gross Profit

1. Helpful for taking major decisions

After calculating gross profit, company can take major decisions.

a) Is current gross profit perfect?

b) Is there any possibility to increase the gross profit?

c) Is this amount is better than previous or not?

2. Gross Profit Ratio Analysis

Gross Profit Ratio = Gross Profit / Sales X 100

By studying this ratio, company manager can analyze following questions:

a) Is actual gross profit ratio is more than standard gross profit ratio?

This is the first question, which we can not solve without getting real figure of gross profit and gross profit ratio. It is very easy to make any standard gross profit ratio. Suppose, I can estimate gross profit ratio 20%. It is easy to estimate but if real gross profit ratio is less than this, then our other planning may affected from this. First of all our net profit rate will affected and then market value of company. So, we can check the variance of gross profit ratio only after calculating gross profit ratio.

b)  How to establish correlation between sales prices and demand of product?

We have read in economics that there is opposite relationship between sales prices and demand of products. Gross profit ratio analysis will be helpful to establish relationship between demand and prices of sales revenue.  Company can apply following strategy.

i) Calculate current gross profit ratio.

ii) Increase the prices for one month and again check the gross profit ratio.

iii) Decrease the prices for next month than previous month and again check the gross profit ratio.

This indicates clearly that company is interested in experiment and this analysis will reach at that position where company can decide optimum price for his products for continue demand and at this level company will gain better GP ratio.

c) What is trend of Gross profit of Company?

Every year calculation teaches company about the trend of gross profit of company. Company should check this trend also by check previous years gross profit data.

Current Assets

In Accounting Glossary, current assets is that part of total assets which can be converted into cash with in one year. In the accounting cycle, one year is sufficient time to convert current assets in to cash or liquid form like deposits into banks. We can include cash, bank, stock, outstanding incomes, debtors, bill receivables, prepaid expenditures and short term investment  in current assets.

Current asset must be shown in the asset side of balance sheet. But during the year, if its record is done through journal entry in the books of company, then we have to pass some current assets' adjustment entry at the end of period and after this these assets will be shown both in profit and loss account and balance sheet. 

For example: We will deduct prepaid expenditure from given expenditures in profit and loss account if these expenses are indirect. Otherwise, we deduct these expenses from direct expenditures. We will also show these prepaid expenditures in current assets in balance sheet.

Benefits of Current Assets for Company

 Financial analysis  is  done on the available data of current assets. Without information of current assets items, company can not manage inventory, debtor, cash and bank properly. Whole working capital and debtor management  are based on the available information of current assets of past years.

What is business?

Business word is the part of  our Accounting Glossary.  We can define business with following way:

Business is all activities whose aim is to earn the money. A teacher teaches his own son or daughter is not business because he is not teaching his child for the purpose of earning money. But same teacher operates his private coaching center for providing coaching services. This coaching center is his business because he wants to earn money from that coaching center. He takes risk of his investment and also interested to get high return on his investment.

For doing business, businessman has to provide goods or services to customers. After taking risk, doing hard-work and providing goods or services, businessman gets return in the form of profit. But it is his risk. Sometime, he can also suffer loss in these activities.

Forms of Business

There are four forms of business:

1st # Sole Trade

It is that form of business which is operated by single person. He takes all risks of business and gets all its profit. His liability to pay the debt is unlimited.

2nd # Partnership

It is association of two and more person who do works under the terms and conditions of partnership deed.
They divide their profit according to their profit.

3rd # Company

Company is also association of large number of shareholders whose objective is to earn the highest return on their investment and to maximize the value of their shares. These persons do not participate in trade of business. All work is done by management and other professional employees. After checking the performance of company accounts which has been made on basis of general accepted accounting principles, board of directors issue dividend. Market value of share is decided by demand and supply of shares and stocks in capital market.

4th # Other Forms of Business

These days, there are many other forms of business have been developed expect above. In these forms we can include cooperative organisations, online business, venture capital business and Networking business and many other forms.One of my friend invests his money for getting fixed return of 100% margin on investment  per month at 100% risk. These forms are also called risky business. Either your whole money will be doubled with in one month at minimum investment of Rs. 10,000 or it will be zero after one month due to risk factor of market.

Types of Business

Above forms of business is very limited but type of business in which you are interested is unlimited. This classification is done according to the nature of product and services in which you want to deal.

1. Agricultural business

This business is connected with production of raw material, seeds, vegetables, milk and cattle farming which is famous in India. 70% of India are doing agricultural activities. Cow was the its main wealth. But it is sad story of agricultural business that they are not wasting their worthy product cow by selling to butchers. That is the reason, Indian agricultural business is facing loss. All farmers of India are captured under big loans and they are busy just to pay interest on it. I think, Indian agricultural business can develop, if Indian farmer will not kill cow by selling to butchers. Even Indian laws are against this due to spiritual reasons but if we see this issue from economic or business point of view. We find that a cow's whole life is benefited for human being. If a cow is not giving milk, then its dung can be used for bio-gas plant. Himachal Pardesh is the first state of India, who is gaining profit by selling bio-gas whose raw material is cow dung.

2. Financial Business

These business include Forex, share trading and money trading and bond trading.

3. Real Estate Business

This is the big business in India and this is done in real estate market.

4. Retail Business

Retailers and Distributors act as middle-men in getting goods produced by manufacturers to the intended consumer, generating a profit as a result of providing sales or distribution services. Most consumer-oriented stores and catalogue companies are distributors or retailers

5. Service Business

There are many services like advertising, coaching, training and transportation in which big company can do the business and earn the profit.

6. Commodity Business

In commodity market, dealers buy commodity at low raw and to do the business by selling it high rate.

84 Crores of Indians Earn Rs. 20 Per Day, is It Necessary to Pay for Space Research?

This is the question which was asked by Ravi Daniel and he said

" It is not fair when 84 crores Indians earn less than 20 rupees per day. You can even send missions successfully to Mars too by begging billions of loan from all other countries, world bank etc. Before that you should provide a minimum guaranteed life to poor Indians. It is not good for wasting tax payers money in many ways (Yesterday's failure mission) when 84 crore indian are begging for one time food.

and its best Answer has been given by Supertra

It is fair when government spend money on space research but it is not fair when government spends lots of money on silly cricket, bollywood & other things.

According to My view

Supertra is saying correct. Money which is spent on science and research  by Government is not wastage of money. Space research is also research of space science. It is fully connected with the welfare of human being. Large number of people are making their living from space research. Large number of natural estimations are given on the basis of space research. With this, we can save with many mishappenings. So, I also say , it is necessary to pay for space research, even  84 crores of Indians are earning Rs. 20 per day. But Government of Indian must not waste their money on corrupted ministers, Cricket, production of dinkings.

Budget of BCCI is more than total expenditure of space research. I also think, it is the part of education, so like promoting other education. Govt. of India must promote space research. Only After, Kalpana Chawla and other Indian Scientist  can  get space education in India and no need to go USA and they can contribute in the development of  India. With this, we can save our human capital from flying outside research in space.


I hope, "One day, it may possible that 84 crores of Indians will earn Rs. 10,000 per day with new invention of space research. So, dear be positive. My field is teaching and education. I think, research is power of teacher to invent any new thing. With this invention, standard of living of poor people will be high.

Solution of Problems in Annuities of Organisational Finance

>> May 28, 2010

Problem

This is a humble request from you to find some useful tips on Annuity, Sir, I'm a student of Masters in Professional Accounting from Sydney University, Australia, I am facing problems in Annuity (both Future and Present).

I have been learning many things from your blog and I have also registered with ur email. So, Kindly email me regarding Annuities of Organisational Finance, one of the subjects of Masters.

Solution

Dear student,

For solving annuities problems of your organisational finance subject, you have to understand the meaning of annuity. After this, you can go deep in it.

Q:- 1.  What is Annuity?

Ans. : When you purchased an asset on credit, you have to pay the amount purchased asset in installments. That installment is called Annuity.

For Example

Suppose, you have to go to Sydney University, Australia from your house which is about 60 km. far from your own house where you are living. Now, you go to your local financial institute and finance your car. You can fix that you have to repay the amount of car with in 12 installments. These installments will be annuities.

More deep explanation of Annuity:

 Above was the simple definition and example of annuity but we can explain more deeply it. Above is only that type of annuity which is fixed for its future time . For example , if we purchase a car and if agreement fixes the 10 installment of payment , then these annuities will be called annuity certain. We also fix Perpetuity or perpetual annuity. It is that type of annuity which is payable all the time . There is no end of these annuities . For example , if a person has taken life insurance policy , then if he pays its premium up to his life , these these annuities will be called perpetuity or perpetual annuity.If  Any annuity whose payment is closed after some time , then these annuity is called forborne annuity .

I think you understand the meaning of Annuity and its different types. Now, I am taking second step for calculation of annuity. You have to understand the steps to calculate the annuity.

Q: 2 How to Calculate the Annuities?

Ans.  In organisational finance, we need to calculate different annuities different Techniques of Mathematics Finance.

First Technique of Calculating Annuity

If you have to buy any car , TV , or any other product , then this formula can used for calculating value of annuity . In many questions , you will see that buyer will pay some amount when he buys product , so deduct it from principle amount .


For example :

A man purchases a refrigerator by making a cash payment of Rs. 5000. In addition he has to pay Rs. 1000 at the end of each six month for 4 years. If money is worth 10% compounded semi-annually find cash- price for refrigerator.

Solution

This problem, we can only solve, if we know first technique to calculate the annuity.

Cash price of refrigerator - cash payment =

Value of Annuity X [ 1- (1+r/100) and its power minus t / r/100 ]

Or

Cash price of refrigerator =

cash payment + Value of Annuity X [ 1- (1+r/100) and its power minus t / r/100 ]

cash price of refrigerator = 5000 + 1000{ 1- (1+5/100) power - 8 / 5/100 }

Cash price of refrigerator = Rs. 11466


Second Technique of Calculating Annuity


If you have created any fund to buy new fixed asset or repay the amount of long term loan or debentures,  then second formula is more simple than first


For example

A person sets up a sinking fund in order to collect RS. 50, 00, 000 after 19 years for his child education in Sydney University, Australia. How much amount should he set aside into an account paying 5% p.a. Compound half yearly.

Solution :

Total target of person to save = Rs. 50,00,000 in 10 years because he will send his child to Sydney university, Australia for higher education and I think Rs. 50,00,000 will be needed to go to Australia for study  in 2020.

rate = 5% p.a. or 5/2 % half yearly

time or t = 10 x 2 =20


Total saving =


Amount or annuity or installment for sinking fund { ( 1+r/100) power number of time - 1 / r/100}

50, 00, 000 =  Annuity  { ( 1+ 5/200) power 20 -1/ 5/100}

Amount of Annuity = 50,00,000 X 1000 / 4 X 675 = Rs. 185100.80

So, that person have save 185100.80 set aside every six month for his child education in Sydney university, Australia.

Benefits of Reserves

We see, it is the nature of human being that he always thinks to create reserves of everything. In accounting and finance, reserves are created from security point of view. These reserves reduce the risk of loss of business. In company's balance sheet, accountant has to show total amount of reserves as reserves and surplus. It is also duty of accountant to create different type of reserves in company like reserve for doubtful debt, general reserve, contingent reserve, capital reserve and revenue reserve. Some special reserves are created according to situation of business.

Every type business, you will a new name reserve, suppose, if you are dealing in foreign exchange, you have to create Forex Reserves for reducing the risk of fluctuation of currency market. Now, we discuss its main benefits.

1. To stabilize the share's market value

Do, you know, reserves are very important for stabilizing the share's market value. According to company law, it is very necessary to create reserve out of current profit before distribution of net profit to shareholders as dividend. By creating reserves out of shareholder's profit, company gets the capacity to tolerate every type of business loss and survive in unfavorable condition by using this reserve money. With this, company can perform better and it helps to stabilize the share's market value.

2. Legal Requirement for creating special reserves

Sometime it is  it is required in many legislations and it must be legal reserve as a percentage of share capital. So, it is good to create that type of reserve for protecting from penalty.

3. Payment of Company Expenditures on Time

Reserves are very useful to pay company's all expenditures on the time. Suppose, if company has to pay loan after 2 years on specific date and company has already same amount in sinking fund reserve, there will be no problem for company to pay on the time. Other example is of remuneration reserve. It will be used later to pay bonuses to employees or management.

4. Security of All Types of Financial Risks

Accountant has to create the reserves and provisions to secure the business from all types of financial risk like liquidity risk, solvency risk and many others. Without creating sound reserves and showing it in the liability side of business, company can face financial disaster and crisis.

5.  Everything may be in Reserves

One of major benefit of reserves is that we can put every thing in reserve form. Suppose, you have to go to office, you will surely check your car's petrol and see whether is it on the reserve point or not? Like this, accountant will see reserve amount of stock, tools, equipment and computer. If we have acquired new computer, we can use when our first computer faces any problem. At that type, we continue our work.

Finally, I want to say that there are lots of benefits of reserves but you also see, whether your ROI on reserve is more than  time value of money if you save that money in bank at cut off rate. Sometime, excess reserve is also misuse of money.

Break Even Point Analysis

>> May 26, 2010

About 3,330,000 google results regarding break even point analysis  (0.17 seconds)


Break even point analysis is very important topic of cost accounting. You add more in it by writing your worthy comments below this content. Break even point analyzes which quantity or amount of sale of products will be most profitable to the business. First of all, we find  break even point  on graph of total sale and total cost on the different level of unit of sale and then study the cause and effect deeply if we increase sale or decrease the sale from this point and try to find important facts and information which can be used in business. It can also solve following problems

Q: - 1. Why are company increasing the price of product or decreasing its cost?

Ans. After find the break even point on the graph paper and calculating the quantity of sale under break even point. It is very easy for company to know the quantity of sale where total cost of company is equal to total revenue of company. But some time, company has no power to get that level of sale. At that time, company can take the decision to increase the price or decrease its fixed and variable cost for protecting business from loss. That is the reason, we are doing analysis of break even point.


Q: - 2. How will Company get new ideas relating to maximize the profit?

Ans. Break even provides clear picture of cost, sales, profit and their relationship. Sometime a simple person does not understand the formula of units sold at break even point but this formula shows the clear relationship among total fixed cost, sale per unit and variable cost per unit.

we show here the formula of sale unit at BEP = TFC / sale price per unit - variable cost per unit

Now, accounts manager thinks like me :

a) how can my sale unit will more than break even point sale unit without any loss because there is no benefit to increase sale unit at higher cost?

b) This formula also provides me to reach its originality.


sales unit at BEP = Total fixed cost/ sale price per unit - variable cost per unit

or

X = TFC / P - V


X ( P- V ) = TFC


P X X - V x X = TFC


P X X = TFC + V X X


Total Sale = TFC + TVC


Total Sale = Total Cost


Q:- 3. How can manager achieve target income sales?

Ans. With break even point analysis, manager can achieve target income sales because, if we subtract variable cost out of sale value, we can find contribution and break even point will be

BEP = Total fixed cost / Contribution per unit

and target income in unit will be = total fixed cost + target income / contribution per unit

Q:- How to find Margin of Safety ?

Ans. One of major benefit of analysis of break even point, with this, we can calculate exact amount of profit of business whether they are over or below the sale than break even point. Without  finding break even point, we can not find margin of safety.

margin of safety = (current output - break even output)


margin of safety% = (current output - break even output)/current output x 100

Role of SEBI in Indian Capital Market

>> May 25, 2010

SEBI is regulator to control Indian capital market. Since its establishment in 1992, it is doing hard work for protecting the interests of Indian investors. SEBI gets education from past cheating with naive investors of India. Now, SEBI is more strict with those who commit frauds in capital market.
The role of security exchange board of India (SEBI) in regulating Indian capital market is very important because government of India can only open or take decision to open new stock exchange in India after getting advice from SEBI.

If SEBI thinks that it will be against its rules and regulations, SEBI can ban on any stock exchange to trade in shares and stocks.

Now, we explain role of SEBI in regulating Indian Capital Market more deeply with following points:

1. Power to make rules for controlling stock exchange :

SEBI has power to make new rules for controlling stock exchange in India. For example, SEBI fixed the time of  trading 9 AM and 5 PM in stock market.

2. To provide license to dealers and brokers :

SEBI has power to provide license to dealers and brokers of capital market. If SEBI sees that any financial product is of capital nature, then SEBI can also control to that product and its dealers. One of main example is ULIPs case. SEBI said, " It is just like mutual funds and all banks and financial and insurance companies who want to issue it, must take permission from SEBI."

3. To Stop fraud in Capital Market :

SEBI has many powers for stopping fraud in capital market.


It can ban on the trading of those brokers who are involved in fraudulent and unfair trade practices relating to stock market.

 It can impose the penalties on capital market intermediaries if they involve in insider trading.

4. To Control the Merge, Acquisition and Takeover the companies :

Many big companies in India want to create monopoly in capital market. So, these companies buy all other companies or deal of merging. SEBI sees whether this merge or acquisition is for development of business or to harm capital market.

5. To audit the performance of stock market :

SEBI uses his powers to audit the performance of different Indian stock exchange for bringing transparency in the working of stock exchanges.

6. To make new rules on carry - forward transactions :


Share trading transactions carry forward can not exceed 25% of broker's total transactions.

90 day limit for carry forward.


7. To create relationship with ICAI :

ICAI is the authority for making new auditors of companies. SEBI creates good relationship with ICAI for bringing more transparency in the auditing work of company accounts because audited financial statements are mirror to see the real face of company and after this investors can decide to invest or not to invest. Moreover, investors of India can easily trust on audited financial reports. After Satyam Scam, SEBI is investigating with ICAI, whether CAs are doing their duty by ethical way or not.

Google Disclosed Adsense Revenue Share

47 minutes ago, I obtained the newsletter from Google AdSense blog in which AdSense team has disclosed the revenue share between google and AdSense publishers. I am also AdSense publisher since Jan. 2008. As commerce student, I was lots of following doubts before reading the content of google AdSense team. Today google AdSense team has solved all these doubts.

Ist Doubt

In Google AdSense agreement, we are independent contractors of google and Why is Google not telling us our share?

Solution: Today Google clears my and all other publishers' doubt by declaring the revenue share of AdSense content and AdSense search.

2nd Doubt

Because, Google is not showing the revenue share, I was doubt that we are receiving the under- value in partnership share of AdSense revenue.

Solution: I was wrong. Google's accounting is best. Like a good businessman,  google has given  higher shares of revenue to AdSense publishers.For example, AdSense publisher would receive $68 with AdSense for content for $100 worth of advertising that appeared on AdSense publisher's site. Means

AdSense Revenue share

AdSense content revenue share

Google : AdSense Publisher

32 : 68

AdSense search revenue share

Google : Adsense Publisher

49 : 51

I take the small part of this content and publishing here as featured content. If you are also AdSense publisher, you can read whole content here.

" Today, in the spirit of greater transparency with AdSense publishers, we’re sharing the revenue shares for our two main AdSense products — AdSense for content and AdSense for search.

As you may already know, AdSense is comprised of several products. The most popular are AdSense for content, which allows publishers to generate revenue from ads placed alongside web content, and AdSense for search, which allows publishers to place a custom Google search engine on their site and generate revenue from ads shown next to search results. Since AdSense for content and AdSense for search offer publishers different services, the revenue shared with publishers differs for each of these products.

AdSense for content publishers, who make up the vast majority of our AdSense publishers, earn a 68% revenue share worldwide. This means we pay 68% of the revenue that we collect from advertisers for AdSense for content ads that appear on your sites. The remaining portion that we keep reflects Google's costs for our continued investment in AdSense — including the development of new technologies, products and features that help maximize the earnings you generate from these ads. It also reflects the costs we incur in building products and features that enable our AdWords advertisers to serve ads on our AdSense partner sites. Since launching AdSense for content in 2003, this revenue share has never changed.

We pay our AdSense for search partners a 51% revenue share, worldwide, for the search ads that appear through their implementations. As with AdSense for content, the proportion of revenue that we keep reflects our costs, including the significant expense, research and development involved in building and enhancing our core search and AdWords technologies. The AdSense for search revenue share has remained the same since 2005, when we increased it.
Google's financial results for the first quarter of this year, show that only 30% of Google's total revenue is from partner sites and the traffic acquisition cost (TAC) is 26% of the revenue. "The majority of TAC is related to amounts ultimately paid to our AdSense partners, which totaled $1.45 billion in the first quarter of 2010." Google's partner sites generated revenues, through AdSense, of $2.04 billion. Obviously, 1.45/2.04=0.71, which is very close to the AdSense for Content revenue share.

Google Terms of Service Agreement (Simplified)

>> May 23, 2010

Google is not only search engine but also a company. Like all other companies, google has also rules and regulations. All these rules and regulation must accept the user of google services and product. Because google is giving us the free service of GMail, search engine, blogging plate form, Knol, Picasa album and many others under same google account. But, google wants that we should accept his terms and condition. Even, you open the http://www.google.com/ and write accounting education in its search box, it means it is contract between you and google and you have no right to use any google service, if you do not accept any of terms of service agreement.

All these terms of services are the condition which I have studied many days deeply by taking time from my busy schedule because like you, I am also the old user of google's almost all products which google has designed by doing hard work.

Now, I am sharing you what I have learned from these Google terms of service ( TOS) agreement. It is more important to the online publisher who are working as the partner of google.

1st Condition
Accept all the terms

It is the first condition of google term of services that every user of google product must accept its all conditions which is updated from time to time.

2nd Condition
Legal Age for Contract

As a commerce student, you will read the Indian Contract Act 1872 in which one is offer giver and other is the person who accepts the proposal. Same thing is with google. Google is the personality who gives us the offer to use his free products but with TOS and its second condition is the person must be legal age for doing any contract. In India this age is 18 years or 18 +  and the age below this will be minor or kid.

It means kids do not use the service of google according to its TOS. But I do not understand why is google suggestions like games for kids which indicates, " Dear kids come on the Google and we will show you the results pages with special games for kids keywords."

Its answer, I got from CNET's content Google: No kids allowed . This content was written by Christopher Soghoian. He gave my question's answer with very beautiful way. Thanks Dear Soghoian.

3rd Condition
Change the Condition without Notice

What tos you are reading, google can change it without giving you any notice. Try to understand it. Google deals in technology and technology is changing fastly. So, please accept its changes also. Suppose, tomorrow, google will start google TV and all condition of google TV may add in Web services. So be updated to read after sometime.

4th Condition
Stop services to you

Google is all services are free of cost. So, google is saying that you should not feel, if I will stop any service to you in future without any prior notice. Ok.

5th Condition
Please Fill Correct, Accurate and Up to date Registration Information

This condition is very useful for every user. So, every user must fill the correct, accurate and up to date registration information. I keep my account's information up to date that is the reason, I got my disabled Google account within One minute.

6th Condition
Not to Resell Google's services and products

Google is doing hard work day and night and you are just copy its product and reselling in the market. That is not good. So, google warns you not to do this smart game and accept the condition of not to resell google's services and products.

7th Condition
No Responsibility of Damage or Loss

You are searching on the google and captured in scam scheme and lost $ 1 million dollars. Google will not pay you even one cent because by using you have accepted  that Google has no responsibility of damage or loss.

8th Condition
To maintain the confidentiality of Passwords of Google Accounts

Google knows that you know the benefits of strong password and also benefits to maintain it confidentiality even from the eyes of your own  partner ( wife ) because google is not responsible if you account is hacked due to your ignorance of security.

9th Condition
Accept All Privacy Policy of Google

You must also accept all the privacy policies of google which is written at www.google.com/privacy.html

10th Condition
Responsible for your Published Contents

If you use the google's free products and create any content in written form or video form, you are the sole responsible for all these contents. There is no responsibility of google. But google has right to refuse your published contents to include in its services or remove from services.

All those who are reading this content, please read detail and up to date Google Terms of Services . I also recommend you to print off Google TOS copy and take time to read all these terms carefully.
