Effective as of January 19, 2022
This Developer Policy ("Policy") provides rules and guidelines that govern access to or use by our developers (“you” or “your”) of the Blip API, websites (“Site”), dashboards, related tools, and other products or services (collectively, the "Service") provided by Blip Labs, Inc. (“Blip”, “we”, “our”, and “us”). Any violation of this Policy may result in suspension or termination of your access to the Service and/or access to end users’ personal and financial information ("End User Data").
By accessing and using the Service, you agree to comply with all the terms of this Policy. This Policy will apply each time you access or use the Service. If you are agreeing to the terms of this Policy on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are so authorized to agree on behalf of that organization or entity. This Policy is important; please read it carefully.
We may update or change this Policy at any time in our discretion. If we make any changes to this Policy that we deem to be material, we will make a reasonable effort to inform you of such change. If you don’t agree with the change, you are free to reject it; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Service.
To sign up for the Service, you must create an account ("Account") by registering on our Site or by contacting us at email@example.com and providing true, accurate, and complete information about yourself and your use of the Service. You agree not to misrepresent your identity or any information that you provide for your Account, and to keep your Account information up to date at all times. It is your responsibility to maintain access to your Account; you may never share your Account information, including your API authentication credentials, including your Client Identification Number (“Client ID”) and secret, or API key with a third party or allow any other application or service to act as you.
If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security, please immediately notify us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When using the Service, you must abide by all applicable local, state, national, and international laws. You also confirm that you, your business, your employees, your service providers, and any others acting on your behalf adhere to all applicable laws, especially those pertaining to financial data and to data protection, privacy and data security.
In addition, you certify that you, your officers, directors, shareholders, direct and indirect parent entities, subsidiaries, and affiliates:
You are responsible for securely maintaining your API authentication credentials, including your Client ID and secret or API key. You must notify us immediately in the event of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account or any End User Data. You must never publish, distribute, or share your Client ID or secret or API Key, and must encrypt this information in storage and during transit.
Your systems and application(s) must handle End User Data securely. With respect to End User Data, you should follow industry best practices but, at a minimum, must perform the following:
Any End User Data in your possession must be stored securely and in accordance with applicable laws.
Once you stop using the Service in accordance with any applicable agreement you may have with us, you may deactivate your Account by following the instructions on the Site. We may also deactivate your Account if you have ceased using the Service for three months; your applicable agreement with us terminates or expires; or as reasonably necessary under applicable law. After your Account deactivation, we will deprovision your access to all End User Data associated with your integration.
You agree not to, and agree not to assist or otherwise enable any third party to:
We reserve the right to withhold, refuse, or terminate access to the Service and/or End User Data in whole or in part where we believe the Service is being accessed or used in violation of this Policy or any other Blip agreement, including Blip’s agreements with any third party partners or data sources of Blip (each, a “Partner”), or where use would pose a risk of harm, including reputational harm, to Blip, its infrastructure, its data, the Service, an end user, or a Partner.
We will use reasonable efforts to notify you via email or other method when deciding to withhold, refuse, or terminate access to the Service and/or End User Data. We may immediately suspend or terminate access without notice if appropriate under the circumstances, such as when we become aware of activity that is a violation of any applicable law or when we determine, in our sole discretion, that harm is imminent.
Blip will not be liable for any damages of any nature suffered by you or any third party resulting from Blip’s exercise of its rights under this Policy or under applicable law.
If any person becomes aware of a violation of this Policy, we request that you immediately notify us via email to email@example.com. We may take any appropriate action — including reporting any activity or conduct that we suspect violates the law to appropriate law enforcement officials, regulators, or other appropriate third parties — in our sole discretion in respect to such violations.
The failure by you or Blip to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder.
If any provision of this Policy is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Policy shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
