aXcelerate Application Programming Interface (API) Terms of Service Agreement

Acceptance of Terms

This aXcelerate API Terms of Service document (the “API TOS”) is an agreement you must accept in order to use the aXcelerate API (as described below). This document describes both your rights and your obligations as part of using the aXcelerate API. It is important that you read it carefully because you will be legally bound to these terms. aXcelerate ( “we” “us”) only provides the aXcelerate API to you subject to this API TOS. By accepting this API TOS or by accessing or using the aXcelerate API, you agree to be bound by this API TOS (including the Privacy Policy, Brand Guidelines, and general Terms of Service, which are incorporated here by reference).

If you are entering into this API TOS on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to this API TOS. In that case, the terms “you” or “your” shall also refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with this API TOS, you may not use the aXcelerate API. You acknowledge that this API TOS is a contract between you and aXcelerate, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you and aXcelerate, and it governs your use of the aXcelerate API.
