This Application Programming Interface Supplement (“API Supplement”) is attached to and incorporated into the Proof General Terms (“General Terms”). Capitalized terms not otherwise defined have the meanings given in the General Terms, the Proof Glossary, or the Order Form.

  1. General. This API Supplement applies to Subscriber, if Subscriber uses Proof’s APIs. If Subscriber does not accept this API Supplement, Subscriber may not access or use the API.
  2. License Grant. Subject to and conditioned on Subscriber’s compliance with all terms and conditions set forth in the Agreement, Proof hereby grants Subscriber a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license during the term of the Agreement to use the API solely for developing an integration with Subscriber’s application(s) that will communicate and interoperate with the Services for the benefit of a User (“Applications”). Subscriber acknowledge that there are no implied licenses granted under the Agreement. Proof reserves all rights that are not expressly granted. Subscriber may not use the API for any other purpose without Proof’s prior written consent. In order to use and access theAPI, Subscriber must purchase Proof Services that include Proof’s APIs or Subscriber’s use must be approved by Proof. Subscriber will gain access to the API Key on the Proof Platform. Subscriber may not share Subscriber’s API Key with any third party, must keep Subscriber’s API Key and all log-in information secure, and must use the API Key as Subscriber’s sole means of accessing the API. Subscriber’sAPI Key may be revoked at any time by Proof.
  3. Personal Data. The API may provide Subscriber with access to certain personal information of Users, or other individuals, including but not limited to: (a) homeowner names and other homeowner information; and (b) certain financial information, including mortgage details, individual net worth, or home worth details (collectively, “API Personal Data”). Subscriber’s use of API Personal Data is strictly limited to the uses specifically requested through opt-in consent by Users. Subscriber agrees to keep the API Personal Data confidential. Subscriber will not disclose, reproduce, summarize or distribute the API Personal Data to any third party or otherwise display API Personal Data to anyone other than the User to whom theAPI Personal Data belongs and Subscriber’s employees who are bound by thisAgreement on a need-to-know basis. Subscriber will take reasonable security precautions, at least as great as the precautions Subscriber takes to protect Subscriber’s confidential information, but no less than reasonable care, to keep confidential API Personal Data.
  4. Use Restrictions.
    Restrictions. Except as expressly authorized under this Agreement, Subscriber may not:

    copy, modify, or create derivative works of the API, in whole or in part;
    (b) share Subscriber's access credentials with any third party, or allow any third party to use Subscriber's access credentials on Subscriber's behalf;
    (c) rent, lease, lend, sell, license, sublicense, assign, distribute, publish, transfer, or otherwise make available the API;
    (d) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, decode, adapt, or otherwise attempt to derive or gain access to any software component of the API, in whole or in part;
    (e) remove any proprietary notices from the API;
    (f) use the API in any manner or for any purpose that infringes, misappropriates, or otherwise violates any intellectual property right or other right of any person, or that violates any applicable law;
    (g) use any data or materials accessible through the API for any purpose other than for providing the Application to Users;
    (h) access the API or use any data or materials available through the API for competitive or benchmarking purposes;
    (i) combine or integrate the API with any software, technology, services, or materials not authorized by Proof;
    (j) design or permit Subscriber's Application(s) to disable, override, or otherwise interfere with any Proof-implemented communications to end users, consent screens, user settings, alerts, warning, or the like;
    (k) use the API in any of Subscriber's Application(s) to replicate or attempt to replace the user experience of the Proof Services, including any Proof or User forms or data; or
    (l) attempt to cloak or conceal Subscriber's identity or the identity of Subscriber's Application(s) when requesting authorization to use the API.

    Acceptable Use. Subscriber and Subscriber's Applications shall comply with all terms and conditions of this Agreement, all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, and all guidelines, standards. In addition, Subscriber will not use the API in connection with or to promote any products, services, or materials that constitute, promote, or are used primarily for the purpose of dealing in spyware, adware, or other malicious programs or code, counterfeit goods, items subject to U.S. embargo, unsolicited mass distribution of email (“spam”), multi-level marketing proposals, hate materials, hacking, surveillance, interception, or descrambling equipment, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive, or otherwise offensive content, stolen products, and items used for theft, hazardous materials, or any illegal activities. If Subscriber becomes aware of any access to the API that violates the Agreement, or any User activity that violates the Agreement, Subscriber agrees to immediately notify Proof of such breach by email to legal@proof.com.
  5. Applications.  Subscriber agrees to monitor the use of Applications for any activity that violates applicable laws, rules and regulation or any terms and conditions of theAgreement, including any fraudulent, inappropriate, or potentially harmful behavior, and promptly restrict any offending users of Applications from further use of Applications. Subscriber agrees to provide a resource for users of Applications to report abuse of Applications. As between Subscriber and Proof, Subscriber is responsible for all acts and omissions of Subscriber’s end users in connection with Subscriber’s Application and their use of the API, if any. Subscriber agrees that Subscriber is solely responsible for posting any privacy notices and obtaining any consents from Subscriber’s end users required under applicable laws, rules, and regulations for their use of Applications. If the number of requests that Applications make to the Platform are unreasonably large, Proof reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to limit the number of requests.
  6. No Fees. Subscriber agrees that no license fees or other payments will be due under this APISupplement in exchange for the rights granted under this API Supplement. Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that this fee arrangement is made in consideration of the mutual covenants set forth in this agreement, including, without limitation, the disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability set forth herein. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Proof reserve the right to start charging for access to and use of the API at any time.
  7. Intellectual Property Ownership. Subscriber acknowledges that, as between Subscriber and Proof: (a) Proof owns all right, title, and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to theAPI (including all data or other materials accessible through the API), and theServices; and (b) Subscriber owns all right, title, and interest, including all intellectual property rights, in and to Subscriber’s Application(s), excluding the aforementioned rights. Subscriber will use commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard the API (including all copies thereof) from infringement, misappropriation, theft, misuse, or unauthorized access. Subscriber will promptly notify Proof if Subscriber becomes aware of any infringement of any intellectual property rights in the API and will fully cooperate with Proof, in any legal action taken by Proof to enforce Proof’s intellectual property rights.
  8. Indemnification. Subscriber agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Proof and its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, successors, and assigns from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, claims, actions, judgments, settlements, interest, awards, penalties, fines, costs, or expenses of whatever kind, including attorneys’ fees, arising from or relating to: (a) Subscriber’s use or misuse of the API; and (b) Applications, including any User’s use of Applications. Subscriber’s obligations under this Section 8are conditioned on Proof: (a) giving prompt notice of the claim to Subscriber,(b) granting sole control of the defense or settlement of the claim to Subscriber, and (c) providing reasonable cooperation to the Subscriber at Subscriber's request and expense. Proof may participate in the claim’s defense at its sole cost and expense. Subscriber will not enter into any settlement that adversely affects Proof’s interests without prior written approval, not to be unreasonably withheld. Subscriber is not responsible for any settlement it does not approve in writing.
  9. Term and Termination. Proof may immediately terminate or suspend any rights granted herein, and/or Subscriber’s licenses under the Agreement, in Proof’s sole discretion at any time and for any reason, by providing notice to Subscriber or revoking access to the API. In addition, Proof may suspend access to the API immediately without any notice, if Subscriber violates any of the terms and conditions of the Agreement. Upon termination of the Agreement for any reason, all licenses and rights granted toSubscriber under the Agreement will also terminate and Subscriber must cease using, destroy, and permanently erase from all devices and systems Subscriber directly or indirectly controls all copies of the API and any related materials and API documentation. Any terms that by their nature are intended to continue beyond the termination or expiration of the Agreement, will survive termination. Termination will not limit any of Proof’s rights or remedies at law or in equity.
