By accessing or using the API, you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and accept these API Terms and agree that you are legally bound by these terms. If you do not accept these terms, you may not access or use the API.
“API” means the web-based services providing access to Worksome’s Platform, systems and data, and include API Documentation or other API materials made available by Worksome.
“API Documentation” means the API documentation described at https://docs.worksome.com/ from time to time.

Worksome grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use our API, subject to these Terms. The license permits you to: (a) use the API solely for your internal business purposes in developing Your applications that will communicate and interoperate with the Worksome platform, and (b) display certain Worksome Marks in compliance with usage guidelines that we may specify from time to time solely in connection with the use of the API and the Applications and not in connection with the advertising, promotion, distribution, or sale of any other products or services. You acknowledge that there are no implied licenses granted under these terms. We reserve all rights that are not expressly granted. You may not use the API or any Worksome Mark for any other purpose without our prior written consent. You must obtain an API Key through the registration process available at https://www.worksome.com/ to use and access the API. You may not share your API Key with any third party, must keep your API Key and all log-in information secure, and must use the API Key as your sole means of accessing the API. Your API Key may be revoked at any time by us.
Except as expressly authorized under these terms, you may not:

- combine or integrate the API with any software, technology, services, or materials not authorized by Worksome,
- design or permit Your Applications to disable, override, or otherwise interfere with any Worksome-implemented communications to end users, consent screens, user settings, alerts, warning, or the like,
- use the API in any of Your Applications to replicate or attempt to replace the user experience of the Worksome Offering, or
- attempt to cloak or conceal your identity or the identity of Your Applications when requesting authorization to use the API.
You accept to comply with API Terms, all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, and all guidelines, standards, and requirements that may be posted on https://docs.worksome.com/ from time to time. In addition, you 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, 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.

All use by you of the Worksome Marks, if any, will comply with any usage guidelines that we may specify from time to time. You agree that your use of the Worksome Marks in connection with these terms will not create any right, title, or interest in or to the Worksome Marks in favor of you, and all goodwill associated with the use of the Worksome Marks will inure to the benefit of Worksome.

Worksome may provide support services for the API at its sole discretion.
You acknowledge that we may update or modify the API from time to time and at our sole discretion (in each instance, an “Update”), and may require you to obtain and use the most recent version of the API. Updates may adversely affect how Your Applications communicate with the Worksome Offering. You are required to make any changes to the Applications that are required for integration as a result of such Update at your sole cost and expense. Your continued use of the API following an Update constitutes binding acceptance of the Update.

You acknowledge and agree that this fee arrangement is made in consideration of the mutual covenants set forth in these terms, including, without limitation, the disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability set forth herein.
