Last Updated: april 23, 2015
In order to use the APIFONICA API (the “APIFONICA API” or “API”), access the information contained on the www.apifonica.com. website (the “Website”) or make use of the services provided by APIFONICA (the “Service” or “Services” or “Apifonica”), You (hereinafter referred to as “You”, “Your” or “Yourself”) must first read this agreement (the “Terms of Service” or “Agreement”) and accept it.
These Terms of Service will remain in effect throughout Your use of the Services and continue after this Agreement expires, cancels or is terminated. These Terms of Service are legally binding should You choose to register for the Service. When You create Your APIFONICA account, You must provide us with accurate and complete information. You may not use the API or Services and may not accept the Terms of Service if (a) You are not of legal age to form a binding contract with us, or (b) You are a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of the Republic of Finland or other countries including the country in which You are a resident or from which You use the Services.
By accepting these terms You acknowledge and agree that You have reached the legal age to enter into such binding Agreement in the country in which You are located or resident or that You have Your parent or legal guardian’s permission if required by applicable law. It is Your responsibility to ensure that You are legally allowed to enter into this Agreement and that You do not violate any applicable laws.
The terms and conditions set forth herein may be amended in our sole and absolute discretion from time to time, and such amended terms and conditions shall be effective immediately upon posting to the Website. Your continued use of the Service after such posting will constitute acceptance by You of such amendments. It is Your responsibility to review these Terms of Service frequently and remain informed about any changes to them, so we encourage You to visit this page often.
1. Grant of Rights to Use Services
1.1 Subject to Your acceptance of and compliance with this Agreement and with the payment requirements for the Services, APIFONICA hereby grants You a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, non-sublicenseable right and license, in and under our intellectual property rights, to access and use the Services, solely in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features provided by APIFONICA that augment or enhance the current Services shall also constitute “Services” and shall be subject to these terms and conditions. You may not, nor allow any third party to, copy, distribute, sell, disclose, lend, transfer, convey, modify, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer the Services for any purpose whatsoever. You may not allow any unauthorized third party to access the Services for any purpose whatsoever. All rights not expressly granted under this Agreement are retained by APIFONICA.
1.2 You may write a software application or website (an “Application”) that interfaces with the Services. You acknowledge that we may change, deprecate or republish APIs for any Service or feature of a Service from time to time, and that it is Your responsibility to ensure that calls or requests You make to or via our Service are compatible with then-current APIs for the Service. APIFONICA will attempt to inform You of any changes with reasonable notice so You can adjust Your Application, but we are under no obligation to do so.
1.3 You and any Applications that You may build, distribute, or otherwise create may make network calls or requests to the Services, or may receive phone calls via the Service, at any time that the Services are available provided that those requests do not violate the terms of the Acceptable Use Policy or other terms of this Agreement.
1.4 You may not remove, obscure, or alter any notice of any APIFONICA trademark, service mark or other intellectual property or proprietary right appearing on the Website or contained within the Services.
1.6 You are personally responsible for all traffic originating from Your Applications using Your account credentials to the Services. As such, You should protect Your authentication keys and security credentials. Actions taken using Your credentials shall be deemed to be actions taken by You, with all consequences including service termination, civil and criminal penalties.
1.7 We may make available to You, for Your installation, copying and/or use in connection with the Services, from time to time, a variety of software, data and other content and printed and electronic documentation (the “APIFONICA Properties”). Subject to Your acceptance of this Agreement, ongoing compliance with its terms and conditions with respect to the subject Service, and payment if and as required for Your right to use the subject Service, we hereby grant to You, without the right to sublicense, a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license during the Term of this Agreement (as defined in Section 2.1), under our intellectual property or proprietary rights in the APIFONICA Properties, only to install, copy and use the APIFONICA Properties solely in connection with and as necessary for Your use of such Services and solely to the extent in compliance with all the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
(a) The APIFONICA Properties may include, without limitation:
- The APIFONICA Website;
- APIFONICA APIs;
- Specifications describing the operational and functional capabilities, use limitations, technical and engineering requirements, and testing and performance criteria relevant to the proper use of a Service and its related APIs and technology;
(b) APIFONICA may make available under another license agreement, such as an open source agreement, additional content or software. Any such content or software will be clearly marked with such a license indicating the usage rights available for that content or software. For such content or software released pursuant to an open license, APIFONICA encourages You to modify, alter, tamper with, repair and/or create derivative works consistent with such license. Such content or software may include:
- Developer tools, such as software development kits (SDK) or sample code, for use in connection with the APIs;
- Articles and documentation for use in connection with the use and implementation of the APIs (collectively, “Documentation”);
(c) Except as may be expressly authorized under this Agreement:
- You may not, and may not attempt to, modify, alter, tamper with, repair, or otherwise create derivative works of any software included in the APIFONICA Properties.
- You may not, and may not attempt to, reverse engineer, disassemble, or decompile the APIFONICA Properties or the Services or apply any other process or procedure to derive the source code of any software included in the APIFONICA Properties.
1.8 For purposes of this Agreement, APIFONICA hereby grants to You a non-transferable, non-sublicenseable, non-exclusive license during the Term of this Agreement to display the trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names of APIFONICA (each, a “APIFONICA Mark”) for the purpose of promoting or advertising that You use the Service. In return You hereby grant APIFONICA a non-transferable, non-sublicenseable, non-exclusive license during the Term of this Agreement to display Your trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names and the like for the purpose of promoting or advertising that You use the Service. In using APIFONICA Marks, You may not: (i) display a APIFONICA Mark in any manner that implies a relationship or affiliation with, sponsorship, or endorsement by Apifonica; (ii) use Apifonica’s Marks to disparage APIFONICA or its products or services; or (iii) display a APIFONICA Mark on a site that violates any law or regulation. Notwithstanding the above, APIFONICA may determine in its sole discretion whether its marks may be used in connection with Your Application. Furthermore, we may modify any APIFONICA Marks provided to You at any time, and upon notice, You will use only the modified APIFONICA Marks and not the old APIFONICA Marks. Other than as specified in this Agreement, You may not use any APIFONICA Mark unless You obtain our prior written consent.
1.9 The rights granted by us in this Agreement with respect to the APIFONICA Properties, the APIFONICA Marks and the Services are non-exclusive, and we reserve the right to appoint third parties as developers or systems integrators who may offer products or services which compete with Your Application.

We may also endeavor to provide You with unique post-suspension or post-termination assistance, but we shall be under no obligation to do so. Your right to take advantage of any such assistance, whether generally made available with respect to the Services or made available uniquely to You, shall be conditioned upon Your acceptance of and compliance with any fees and terms we specify for such assistance.
3. Downtime and Service Suspensions; Security
3.1 The Services are provided on a best-efforts basis. In addition to our rights to terminate or suspend Services to You as described in Section 2 above, You acknowledge that: (i) Your access to and use of the Services may be suspended for the duration of any unanticipated or unscheduled downtime or unavailability of any portion or all of the Services for any reason, including as a result of power outages, system failures or other interruptions; and (ii) we shall also be entitled, without any liability to You, to suspend access to any portion or all of the Services at any time, on a Service-wide basis: (a) for scheduled downtime to permit us to conduct maintenance or make modifications to any Service; (b) in the event of a denial of service attack or other attack on the Service or other event that we determine, in our sole discretion, may create a risk to the applicable Service, to You or to any of our other customers if the Service were not suspended; or (c) in the event that we determine that any Service is prohibited by law or we otherwise determine that it is necessary or prudent to do so for legal or regulatory reasons (collectively, “Service Suspensions”). Without limitation to Section 6, we shall have no liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that You may incur as a result of any Service Suspension. To the extent we are able, we will endeavor to provide You notice of any Service Suspension in accordance with the notice provisions set forth in Section 9 below and to post updates regarding resumption of Services following any such suspension, but shall have no liability for the manner in which we may do so or if we fail to do so.
3.2 We strive to keep information you provide to us secure, but cannot guarantee that we will be successful at doing so. Accordingly, without limitation to Section 6 below, You acknowledge that You bear sole responsibility for adequate security, protection and backup of Your content including all audio recordings associated with Your account. We strongly encourage You, where available and appropriate, to use encryption technology to protect Your content from unauthorized access and to routinely archive Your content. We will have no liability to You for any unauthorized access or use, corruption, deletion, destruction or loss of any of Your content.
4.1 In its sole discretion, APIFONICA shall determine whether You are eligible for a free trial subscription to its Services, which terms of the free trial are set forth at www.apifonica.com. Free trials are limited to one per person, and if we find that You have created multiple free trial accounts, we reserve the right to suspend those accounts and take actions to prevent additional violations.
4.2 If You have subscribed to the full version of our Services, then You agree to pay applicable fees (including any minimum subscription fees) as set forth at www.apifonica.com/pricing. All payments of fees for the use of our Services will be pre-paid and are non-refundable. Access to the full version of our Services will not be made available until APIFONICA receives payment of fees from You. If You elect to use our Service again in the future You will be required to prepay applicable fees before access to our Services will be made available for Your use. We may increase or add new fees for any existing Service or feature by giving You 30 days’ advance notice. Call and Message Rates are based on variable market pricing and may therefore be subject to change from month to month without prior written notice. All fees payable by You are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including, without limitation, VAT and applicable sales tax. You will provide such information to us as reasonably required to determine whether we are obligated to collect any taxes from You.
4.3 We may specify the manner in which You will pay any fees, and any such payment shall be subject to our general accounts receivable policies from time to time in effect. All amounts payable by You under this Agreement will be made without setoff or counterclaim and without deduction or withholding. If any deduction or withholding is required by applicable law, You shall notify us and shall pay such additional amounts to us as necessary to ensure that the net amount that we receive, after such deduction and withholding, equals the amount we would have received if no such deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, You shall provide us with documentation that the withholding and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.
4.4 Should You have any dispute as to fees associated with your account, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of the date of the activity that generated such dispute, and we will attempt to resolve the matter. Any and all refunds issued to resolve such a dispute shall be issued as credits to Your account, but in no event shall there be any cash refunds. Disputes older than 30 days shall not be entitled to any refunds or credits.
5. Intellectual Property
5.1 Other than the limited use and access rights and licenses expressly set forth in this Agreement, we reserve all right, title and interest (including all intellectual property and proprietary rights) in and to: (i) the Services; (ii) the APIFONICA Properties; (iii) the APIFONICA Marks; and (iv) any other technology and software that we provide or use to provide the Services and the APIFONICA Properties.

7.1 You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us, our affiliates and licensors, each of our and their business partners (including third party sellers on websites operated by or on behalf of us) and each of our and their respective employees, officers, directors and representatives, harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities, judgments, penalties, fines, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees), arising out of or in connection with any claim arising out of (i) Your use of the Services, APIFONICA Properties and/or APIFONICA Marks in a manner not authorized by this Agreement, and/or in violation of the applicable restrictions, the Acceptable Use Policy, and/or applicable law, (ii) Your Application, Your Content, or the combination of either with other applications, content or processes, including but not limited to any claim involving infringement or misappropriation of third-party rights and/or the use, development, design, manufacture, production, advertising, promotion and/or marketing of Your Application and/or Your Content, (iii) Your violation of any term or condition of this Agreement or any applicable additional policies, including without limitation, Your representations and warranties, or (iv) You or Your employees’ or personnel’s negligence or willful misconduct.
7.2 We agree to promptly notify You of any claim subject to indemnification; provided that our failure to promptly notify You shall not affect Your obligations hereunder except to the extent that our failure to promptly notify You delays or prejudices Your ability to defend the claim. At our option, You will have the right to defend against any such claim with counsel of Your own choosing (subject to our written consent) and to settle such claim as You deem appropriate, provided that You shall not enter into any settlement without our prior written consent and provided that we may, at any time, elect to take over control of the defense and settlement of the claim.
8.1 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, we may seek injunctive or other relief in any state, federal, or national court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or alleged infringement of Apifonica’s or any third party’s intellectual property and/or proprietary rights. Any dispute hereunder shall be adjudicated in Finland, and You consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
