Content owned by third parties (including logos or trademarks) shall not be used by you for any purpose.

“Confidential Information” means the information that we designate as confidential at the time of disclosure or that should reasonably be understood to be our confidential information, including all of our business information. Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) is or becomes generally available to the public through no act or omission by you or breach by you of this Agreement; (ii) at the time of disclosure by us, was lawfully received by you from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to us or the source of such information; or (iii) was or is independently developed by you without use of or reference to the Confidential Information. Confidential Information disclosed prior to your acceptance of this Agreement will be subject to this Section 9.

You may disclose Confidential Information to comply with applicable law, provided that you give us prior notice of the compelled disclosure or legal proceeding (to the extent permitted by law) and reasonable assistance to and cooperation with us, at our cost, if we desire to contest the disclosure. You and we agree that money damages are an inadequate remedy for breach of the obligations in this Section 9, and that any such breach would result in irreparable harm to us. Therefore, in the event of any such actual or threatened breach, we will be entitled, in addition to any other rights or remedies available to us at law or equity, to seek specific performance or injunctive relief without the posting of a bond.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless us, and our directors, officers, employees and contractors to the fullest extent of applicable law from and against any claim, action, demand, loss, liability, damage, cost or expense (including legal fees) arising from or relating to: (i) your breach of this Agreement; (ii) your unauthorized use of, or misuse of, the Services or Content; (iii) any content you have submitted to or through the Services (including User Submissions); (iv) any dispute you have or may have with any third party; or (v) your use of the Services (including any and all acts, omissions, or decisions undertaken or made by you, your affiliates, or third parties with whom you share the Services or Content (whether or not as permitted herein), in each case arising out of or in connection with such parties’ use of the Services or related Content) other than as expressly permitted in this Agreement.

Subject to your complete and ongoing compliance with the Agreement and our Policies, we grant to you a worldwide, limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non- transferable, revocable right and license to: (i) internally use a reasonable number of copies of the API Kit in strict accordance with the Documentation solely to develop an Application that is capable of interacting with App Annie Connect (and not any of App Annie’s other products or services); (ii) make calls to the documented public features of the Connect API solely from the Application and solely for the purposes of accessing, retrieving, and/or receiving your Collected Data (including summaries and/or reports including and/or reflecting your Collected Data) from App Annie Connect in accordance with the Documentation; and (iii) internally reproduce and modify the Sample Code solely as a component of the Application. By submitting any data or information to the Connect API, you hereby grant to us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, freely sublicensable, freely transferable, perpetual, and irrevocable license to use, copy, display, modify, analyze and prepare derivatives of the data and information for purposes of responding to your API calls and performing our obligations and exercising our rights under this Agreement.
Subject to Section 7 of the General Terms (Our and Third-Party Intellectual Property), you may display our trademarks (including brands and logos) and links to www.appannie.com to promote or advertise your API integration, provided that any such displayed trademark is downloaded from our website at www.appannie.com/about/press/company/ and displayed in unmodified form.
We reserve the right (but have no obligation) to modify, replace, update, and/or provide bug fixes for the API Kit at any time (“Updated API Kit”). Each Updated API Kit will be deemed part of the API Kit and subject to the Agreement. Modified or merged portions of the Sample Code will be deemed part of the Sample Code and subject to the Agreement. You must use the most recent version of the Connect API that we provide to you in order to ensure and maintain functionality and security. You must also ensure that, prior to using the Application to receive your Collected Data from App Annie Connect, the Application is fully compatible with the most recent Updated API Kit, if any.
d. Confidentiality; Security
You agree to limit access to and use of the API Kit (and any derived information) to employees and contractors involved in building your Application in accordance with these API Terms and to apply and implement in the Application at least the same level of security used to protect your own most confidential information.
You agree that we may audit your access to and use of the Connect API and you agree to provide us with information related to such access and use as reasonably requested by us, in each case, to verify your compliance with these API Terms and the Agreement. We reserve the right to monitor your access to and use of the Connect API and/or impose limits on certain API features and services for any reason.
f. No Support
You understand that we are in no way obligated to provide you with any error correction, support, or assistance with respect to the API Kit or any part thereof, the development of any Application, or any interaction between any Application and App Annie Connect.
g. Use Restrictions
In addition to the restrictions set forth in Section 5 (Restrictions) of the General Terms and in connection with your access to and use of any of our APIs as expressly permitted hereunder, you agree that you will not, directly or indirectly:
- interact with any of the Services through any of our APIs with any login credentials other than those provided by us to you, or disclose or allow a third party to use your login credentials to interact with any of the Services;
- sell, lease, loan, provide, distribute, or otherwise transfer access to any of our APIs to any third party;

- modify the Documentation, change any of the interfaces described in the Documentation, or extend any interfaces except as described in the Documentation;

- reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, or otherwise attempt to gain access to the source code of the API Kit except for the Sample Code and except to the extent permitted by applicable law; or
- remove, alter, or cover any copyright notices or other proprietary rights notices placed or embedded on or in any part of the API Kit.
h. Open Source Restrictions
Nothing in the Agreement authorizes you to subject any portion of the API Kit or any App Annie intellectual property right in any portion of the API Kit to the terms of any “open source” license, including a license that requires, as a condition of use, modification, or distribution of technology subject to such license, that such technology or other technology combined or distributed with such technology: (i) be disclosed or distributed in source code form; (ii) be licensed for the purpose of making derivative works; or (iii) be re distributable for little or no fee.
