API USER APPLICATIONS
RIGHT TO USE API; USE RESTRICTIONS
API User is encouraged to create innovative software applications that enhance and expand the possibilities of online ordering of Site users. However, doing so is subject some inevitable restrictions (☹), as set forth below:
API User is granted a limited, revocable, non-assignable, non-transferable and personal right to, and API User agrees to, use the API and the Information and establish, and thereafter during your API User relationship with us, maintain the Connectivity (“Right to Use API”) solely for the purposes of sending Orders to the Site and/or directing the users of the API User Applications to the Site, in each case, subject to and in compliance with these API Terms and Conditions.
API User agrees to establish and maintain the Connectivity, including by integrating the API User Applications to the Site and/or placing links on the API User Applications to all listings of Delivery.com merchant members on the API User Applications. Such links will direct the users of the API User Applications to the corresponding Delivery.com merchant members’ pages or home page of the Site. API User further agrees to update and maintain the Connectivity using current and accurate Information and Content as made available by Delivery.com from time to time.
Without limiting the foregoing, API User may use the API to develop, implement, test, launch, operate and support software applications that integrate to the Site or to deep link from the API User Applications to the Site, in each case, solely for the purposes of sending Orders to the Site and/or directing the users of the API User Applications to the Site, in each case, subject to and in compliance with these API Terms and Conditions. (As used in these API Terms and Conditions, the phrase “to deep link” means linking in a way that a user of the API User Applications is linked directly to the corresponding merchant member’s pages or home page of the Site.) API User shall ensure that all links to the Site use our logo, as may be provided by us from time to time.
You acknowledge and agree that use of the API for any purposes except for the ones expressly permitted to API User in these API Terms and Conditions is expressly prohibited and that you shall not use the API or the Information for any other purposes, including information gathering for statistical purposes or otherwise. Without limiting the foregoing and in addition thereto, when linking or deep linking users of the API User Applications to the Site, you agree not to use the API or the Information in a way that will make it non obvious to a user of the API User Applications that she/he is leaving the API User Applications and is using the Site.
You further agree:
(i) that the API and the Information are being provided solely for API User’s use as expressly provided herein, and API User shall not permit or facilitate, and shall prevent, any access to or use of the API or the Information and/or any copying, storage, distribution, sub-licensing, disclosure, sale, parsing, manipulation, create(ion) derivative works based on and/or use in any way of the API or Information, in whole or in part except as otherwise expressly permitted in these API Terms and Conditions;
(ii) to provide reasonable cooperation to Delivery.com in the testing of any software, systems, applications, hardware, devices and/or connectivity in connection with the delivery and functionality of the API and the Information; and
(iii) to promptly implement modifications to the software and systems used by or for API User Applications which are reasonable and feasible to accommodate changes as required by Delivery.com so as to enable API User to continue to receive Information using the API. (For the avoidance of doubt, API User is responsible for the API User Applications and for developing the API, establishing and maintaining the Connectivity, receiving and displaying the then current Information on the API User Applications and any and all circuit, equipment and other costs, fees and expenses associated therewith, including marketing, sales and operations (including travel) expenses and the costs associated with API User’s performance of its obligations pursuant to these API Terms and Conditions.)
Except as expressly permitted in these API Terms and Conditions, you shall (i) have no right to and shall not access, store, distribute, display, sub-license, disclose, sell, copy, reproduce, create any derivative works based on and/or use in any way any API or Information; and (ii) not provide, distribute, display or sell the API or Information to any third parties.
