API Terms of Service

SMALL FOOTPRINT MEDIA LLC API TERMS OF SERVICE

1. Terms of Service

SMALL FOOTPRINT MEDIA LLC (“SFM” “we,” “our,” or “us”) operates an application programming interface (“API”) service and all other software, sites, and services offered by SFM in connection to the API (“API Service”). This API Terms of Service agreement (“Agreement”) governs the terms of your API Service account (“(“API Account”) and the terms by which You (the “User”, “You”, or “Your”) may access and use the API Service.

If you open an API Account on behalf of a client, company, organization, or other entity, then “You” includes You and that client, company, organization, or other entity, and You represent and warrant that: (a) You are an authorized representative of the client, company, organization, or other entity with the authority to bind the client, company, organization, or other entity to this Agreement, and (b) You have the express authorization of the client, company, organization or other entity to create and operate an account on behalf of the client, company, organization or other entity, and (c) You agree to this Agreement on the client, company, organization or other entity’s behalf.

Use of the API service also means that you agree to our general Terms of Use. When there is a conflict between our general Terms of Use and this API Terms of Service, this API Terms of Service shall prevail.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION CONTAINED HEREIN. This AGREEMENT applies to You or anyone else who accesses the API Service. THIS IS A CONTRACT BETWEEN YOU AND SFM. By accessing or using the API Service, you signify that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by this AGREEMENT. If you are not eligible to use the API Service, or do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you do not have our permission to use the API Service.

You must read through the entire API Terms of Service and the SFM Terns of Use and agree with all of the details of both before you use any of our API Services (whether or not you have a paid account).

You must terminate this Agreement and cancel Your API Account in writing by sending notice to:

Small Footprint Media LLC
4340 Redwood Hwy., Suite F222
San Rafael Ca 94903

An email or phone request to terminate this Agreement and to cancel Your API Account is not considered cancellation.

If you have any questions about this Agreement, please contact us at any time at apisupport@scsage.com.

2. Use of the API Service

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a non-exclusive, limited, non-transferable, freely revocable license to use the API Service as permitted under the pricing plan you select (“Service Plan”) and features of the API Service provided for under that Service Plan. Your API Account gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion.

You expressly understand and agree that Your use of the API Service is at your sole risk and that the API Service is provided “as is” and “as available.”.

You agree that You shall not allow access to the API Service to anyone who is not You. You must notify SFM immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of Your API Account. SFM shall not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of Your API Account.

We reserve the right to enforce access quotas and usage limits to the API at Our sole discretion, with or without notice, which may result in Our disabling or throttling your usage of the API Service for any amount of time.

You acknowledge and agree that We may, without prior notice, and without limitation, make changes to the API Service, cease providing the API Service or features of the API Service, add or remove functionality or elements of the Processed Data, or modify Fee and payment policies. If we permanently or temporarily suspend Your access to the API Service or terminate Your API account, for any reason including but not limited to, if in Our sole determination You violate any provision of this Agreement, we shall not be liable to You or to any third party. Upon termination of your API Account, for any reason or no reason, you continue to be bound by this Agreement.

10. Governing Law, Arbitration, and Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver

You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in California; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than California. This Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in, Marin County, California for any actions for which We retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that, Marin County, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.

READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM SFM. For any dispute with SFM, You agree to first contact us at info@smallfootprintmedia.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with Us informally. In the unlikely event that SFM has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with You after sixty (60) days, We each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration shall be conducted in Marin County, California, unless You and SFM agree otherwise. Each party shall be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing SFM from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.

WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND SFM ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.

11. General

This Agreement, together with any amendments hereto and any additional agreements You may enter into with SFM in connection with the API Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between You and SFM concerning the Service. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.

No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and SFM’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by You, but may be assigned by SFM without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.

Notwithstanding any termination of this Agreement for any reason whatsoever and with or without cause, the provisions of Sections 3, 5, 8, 9, 10 and this Section 11 and any other provisions of this Agreement necessary to give efficacy thereto will continue in full force and effect following such termination.
