The “Service” does not include Data or any software application or service that is provided by you or a third party (including Applications), whether or not Notifyd designates them as “official integrations”.
As long as you follow this API TOS, Notifyd grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable license to use the APIs to develop, test, and support any software application, website, or product, and to integrate the Notifyd APIs with your Application. Your license is subject to the limitations set forth in Section 4.2 through 4.8, and you agree that violation of Section 4 will automatically terminate your license to use the Notifyd APIs.
The following identifies limitations on use related to the Notifyd API: Reliance on API: Notifyd is still evolving, and we need the flexibility to occasionally make changes to our APIs, including backwards incompatible ones. We will give you notice of these changes as they occur. Applicable laws or agreements: You may not use the Notifyd API in violation of any law or regulation, or rights of any person, including but not limited to intellectual property rights, rights of privacy, or rights of personality, or in any manner inconsistent with this API TOS or Notifyd’s other agreements to which you are subject.
Scope of acceptable use: You may not use the Notifyd API or any other technology in a manner that accesses or uses any information beyond what Notifyd allows under this API TOS or the Documentation; that changes the Notifyd Service; that breaks or circumvents any of Notifyd’s technical, administrative, process or security measures; that disrupts or degrades the performance of the Notifyd Service or the Notifyd API; or that tests the vulnerability of Notifyd’s systems or networks. Malware: You may not transmit any viruses or other computer programming that may damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system or data.

Secure Storage Measures: All Data should be stored and served using strong encryption. Delete at User Request: You must delete all Data you have collected from a Notifyd user upon request by that user, and when the Notifyd user de-authorizes your Application or closes his or her account with you. Similarly, when a team stops using your Application, you should delete all Data obtained from that team.
The restrictions of this Section do not apply to Data that Notifyd users also provide directly to you and that is separately entered or uploaded to you by the user of your Application. Deletion at Termination: If we terminate your use of the Notifyd APIs for any reason, then you must permanently delete all Data and any other information that you stored pursuant to your use of the Notifyd APIs, except when doing so would cause you to violate any law or obligation imposed by a governmental authority.
This provision does not require a Notifyd user to delete Data stored in Notifyd if the Notifyd user is prohibited from accessing the Notifyd API.

The only exception to this is Data that you as a Notifyd user have licensed to Notifyd, which governs that Data. Except for the express licenses granted in this API TOS, Notifyd does not grant you any right, title, or interest in the Notifyd Materials. You agree to take such actions as Notifyd may reasonably request to perfect Notifyd’s rights to the Notifyd Materials.

THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THIS TOS BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND THE PARTIES HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO ENTER INTO THIS TOS.

Indemnity: You agree to defend, hold harmless and indemnify Notifyd, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, and suppliers, from and against any third party claim arising from or in any way related to you or your users’ use of the Application, Notifyd API or Data, use of Notifyd Brand, or violation of this API TOS, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages (actual and consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees, of every kind and nature. In such a case, we will provide you with written notice of such claim, suit, or action.

You and Notifyd agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Dallas, TX or the Northern District of Texas, and agree to waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over the parties by such courts and to venue in such courts for the purpose of litigating all such Claims. Notwithstanding the above, you agree that Notifyd shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
Severability: If any provision of this API TOS is found to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision; if a term cannot be so modified, it will be severed and the remaining provisions of this API TOS will not be affected in any way.
