google drive and google app engine

I just got an idea that for my new product website. Let me explain it:
1 register my domain, example.com
2 setup website example.com on google app engine with static pages. Jekyll can help me on it a lots.
3 put download files on google drive and dropbox, as public shareing. Both of them have this options.

Is these against Google's policy? since my website is commercial, even it's small.

I think you will have no problems, but in the future I advise to buy commercial hosting.

@Alex thanks. I think you are right. google does not promise a 'solid' services for free(that's reasonable), however I think this is a solution for testing project.

Commercial hosting is affordable and you avoid risking breaking any rules about what's hosted (unless it's porn or such).  I pay $55/year for my domain name and hosting combined ($1.05/week).
