Google, LLC (defendant) created a “Local Guides” program that allowed individuals to sign up to be local guides who shared photographs and reviews on various establishments and locations in their communities. Google offered the local guides benefits for their participation in the program, including a free terabyte of data storage on its Google Drive application for individuals who achieved “Level 4 status.” Relying on the promise of a free terabyte of data storage, Andrew Roley (plaintiff) joined the Local Guides Program. For the next several months, Roley uploaded content as part of the program. On July 7, 2016, Google emailed Roley to notify him that they were no longer offering the free terabyte of storage, but that he could still unlock the original offer for the free terabyte of storage if he reached Level 4 status within the next two weeks. Roley did so within the two-week time frame and received his free terabyte of data storage. Two years later, Google notified him that the terabyte of storage was expiring, and he would have to begin paying monthly for it. Roley sued Google for breach of contract.
