License to Use API Materials and SkySlope Services. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, SkySlope grants solely to Licensee a non-exclusive, worldwide, non-transferable, limited license to use the API Materials and SkySlope Services (as identified on the Services Order Form) only as necessary to develop, test, and integrate only the Licensee Application identified on the Services Order Form with the SkySlope Services via the application program interface of the API Materials as specified by SkySlope (the “License”). No right to sub-license or sub-let is granted under this Agreement. The term “API Materials” means the application programming interface (API) identified in the Services Order Form along with all software developer kits, documentation, API Credentials (as defined below), and any software, materials or data that SkySlope makes available to Licensee, in its sole discretion. Licensee’s use of the SkySlope Services under the License is limited to use by Licensee, its employees, agents and contractors (collectively, “Users”). Licensee shall ensure and guarantee that each User complies with all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including the warranties and restrictions set forth in Sections 2, 3, 7, 9, 11, 15, 16, 22, 23 and 32. Licensee shall be responsible and jointly and severally liable for the acts and omissions of all Users and their compliance with this Agreement. SkySlope has no liability for or relating to any disputes between Licensee and any Users. Licensee shall take all steps necessary to protect all User logins and passwords, to safeguard the security and integrity of the SkySlope Services and API Materials, and to protect against unauthorized access and use. Licensee shall immediately notify SkySlope of any violation of the foregoing. Any access to the SkySlope Services using Licensee’s user logins and passwords shall be deemed access by Licensee. All use of the SkySlope Services must comply with the user policies established by SkySlope from time to time.
API Credentials. To use the API Materials, SkySlope will provide Licensee with certain credentials to permit access, such as a developer key token (the “API Credentials”). Licensee will only use the API Credentials, and the License only grants the right to use the API Credentials, for the Licensee Application. SkySlope may contact Licensee from time to time about Licensee’s use of the API Materials and/or the API Credentials, and Licensee agrees to be responsive to inquiries from SkySlope. Licensee is responsible for the confidentiality of the API Credentials and may not share them with any other developer or third party. Licensee shall take all steps necessary to protect all API Credentials, to safeguard the security and integrity of the API Materials and the SkySlope Services, and to protect against unauthorized access and use. Licensee shall keep its registration, site, application and service information accurate, complete, and current. Licensee is responsible and liable for all use that occurs under the API Credentials, including any activities by Licensee or its employees, contractors or agents. Licensee will contact SkySlope immediately if it has reason to believe there has been an unauthorized use of or access to the API Credentials. All use of the API Materials and if applicable, the SkySlope Services, must comply with the user policies established by SkySlope from time to time.

The term “Customer Data” does not include the SkySlope Services, SkySlope Data, API Materials, Third Party Resources, the SkySlope Intellectual Property, or any other SkySlope products or services, or any derivative works thereof. Any Customer may disclose or transfer, or instruct SkySlope to disclose or transfer, Customer Data to Licensee, and upon such disclosure or transfer SkySlope is no longer responsible for the security or confidentiality of such content and applications outside of SkySlope.

SkySlope does not control and is not responsible for any Third Party Resources. ANY THIRD PARTY RESOURCES ACCESSIBLE OR AVAILABLE ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS-IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. LICENSEE ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT SKYSLOPE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR, AND HAS NO OBLIGATION TO CONTROL, MONITOR, OR CORRECT THIRD PARTY RESOURCES. SKYSLOPE DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITIES ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIRD PARTY RESOURCES. Licensee acknowledges and agree that: (i) the nature, type, quality and availability of Third Party Resources may change at any time during the Term; and (ii) features of the SkySlope Services and API Materials that interoperate with Third Party Resources depend on the continuing availability of such Third Party Resources. SkySlope may need to update, change or modify the SkySlope Services under this Agreement as a result of a change in, or unavailability of, any Third Party Resources. If any third party ceases to make its Third Party Resources available on reasonable terms for the SkySlope Services or API Materials, as determined by SkySlope in its sole discretion, SkySlope may cease providing access to the affected Third Party Resources without any liability to Licensee. Any changes to Third Party Resources, including their unavailability, during the Term does not affect Licensee’s obligations under this Agreement or any Services Order Form, and Licensee will not be entitled to any refund, credit or other compensation due to any such changes. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that: (x) SkySlope is not an agent of any third-party providing or selling Third Party Resources; (y) any agreements relating to Third Party Resources are solely between Licensee and the applicable third-party; and (z) SkySlope has no liability for or relating to any Third Party Resources, Customer Data or disputes between Licensee and any Third Party Resources or between Licensee and any User or Customer, and SkySlope does not control, endorse or accept responsibility for any third parties. Licensee irrevocably waives, releases and discharges SkySlope from any claims arising out of or relating to Third Party Resources and their use. Licensee shall indemnify, defend and hold SkySlope harmless from and against all claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, actions, and causes of action arising out of or relating to all and any claims, liabilities, judgments, actions, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or related to (a) Licensee’s receipt and/or use of Customer Data or Third Party Resources, (b) the Licensee Application or any User’s or Customer’s use of the Licensee Application or any Third Party Resources, and/or (c) any software, programs, applications or application programming interfaces created or used by Licensee under the License.
Confidentiality, Non-Use and Non-Disclosure.

SkySlope utilizes commercially reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical procedures to protect Customer Data, SkySlope Data and Confidential Information used in connection with the SkySlope Services from unauthorized access and accidental loss or modification. However, SkySlope cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use such information for improper purposes. Licensee acknowledges that if Licensee provides any information or data to SkySlope, Licensee does so at its own risk. SkySlope may provide, suggest or mandate security procedures and controls intended to reduce the risk to Licensee of fraud or security breaches (“Security Controls”).

Disablement. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, SkySlope shall have, among its other rights and remedies, the right to immediately temporarily or permanently disable, suspend or terminate Licensee’s access to and/or use of the API Materials, the SkySlope Services or the API Credentials, in whole or in part, with or without notice in the event that: (a) Licensee’s access or use of the API Materials, the SkySlope Services, or the API Credentials interrupts or interferes with the operation of the SkySlope Services in any manner or creates an actual or threatened security risk or exposes SkySlope, Licensee or any third party to civil or criminal liability; (b) Licensee’s breach or default on any obligation under this Agreement, including the obligation to pay fees or any amounts due hereunder; or (c) SkySlope has reason to believe there has been an unauthorized use or access to the API Credentials or the SkySlope Services.

In the event of any breach of this Section, Licensee agrees to pay SkySlope, as liquidated damages, an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of such SkySlope employee’s annual salary. However, such payment does not restrict the other party’s rights or remedies as they relate to the SkySlope employee.

Interpretation. The use in this Agreement of the word “including” will mean “including, without limitation.” The words “hereby,” “herein,” “hereinafter,” “hereof,” “hereto,” “hereunder,” and other words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole, as the same may be altered, amended, modified, repealed, restated and/or supplemented in accordance with the provisions contained in this Agreement, and not to any particular article, clause, paragraph section, subparagraph or subsection contained in this Agreement. All references to articles, clauses, paragraphs, sections, subparagraphs, and subsections will mean the articles, clauses, paragraphs, sections, subparagraphs and subsections contained in this Agreement, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement. The title of and the article, section and paragraph headings contained in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and will not affect or govern the interpretation of any of the provisions contained in this Agreement. The use in this Agreement of the singular form of a definition or term also will denote the plural forms of such definition or term, and vice-versa, as in each case the context may require. Where specific language is used to clarify by example a general statement contained in this Agreement, such specific language will not be deemed to limit, modify or restrict in any manner the construction of the general statement to which it relates. Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not apply to the interpretation and construction of this Agreement and this Agreement shall be construed as having been jointly drafted by the parties.
Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law. However, if any provision of this Agreement or the application of any provision to any party or circumstance shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be reduced to such scope as is reasonable and enforceable if possible. Otherwise, such provision shall be severed from this Agreement and ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity without it invalidating the remainder of the provisions of this Agreement or the application of the provision to the other parties or other circumstances.
Waiver. The failure or delay of any party in exercising any of its rights hereunder, including any rights with respect to a breach or default by the other party, shall in no way operate as a waiver of such rights or prevent the assertion of such rights with respect to any later breach or default by the other party. No party shall be deemed to have waived any rights under this Agreement by any action or inaction unless an express waiver is set forth in writing. The waiver of one breach hereunder shall not constitute the waiver of any other or subsequent breach.
Assignment and Binding Effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon the parties and each of their respective successors and assigns. This Agreement is personal to Licensee and may not be assigned or transferred by Licensee, in whole or in part, whether by agreement, merger, sale, change of ownership, equity or control, by operation of law or otherwise.

Any legal notice sent by Licensee to SkySlope must also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable in damages, in breach or have the right to terminate this Agreement for any delay or default in performing hereunder if such delay or default is caused by any act of God, flood, fire, storm, strike, lockout, war, riot, insurrection or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of the party whose performance is affected (a “Force Majeure”) to the extent the same directly prevents or delays the performance of such party’s obligations hereunder; provided that, no such condition shall excuse or justify any delay in a party’s performance of its payment obligations hereunder.

Nothing herein will be construed as creating any agency relationship employment relationship, joint venture or partnership between the parties. Neither party is authorized to make any agreements, covenants, representations or warranties on behalf of the other.
