We’ll refer to kinkify.me as the “Site,” Kinkify’s mobile applications as the “Apps,” and Pattern by Kinkify, Kinkify Payments, the Kinkify API and our other services, together with the Site and Apps, collectively as the “Services.” These API Terms also incorporate by reference Kinkify’s Intellectual Property Policy. While Kinkify owns our API, members own their own content.
Kinkify grants you a limited, personal, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable license to access and use our API to create and run websites and applications that comply with our policies. Kinkify reserves the right to charge for access to, or use of, the API in the future. If you violate the Terms, we may revoke your API access or your account privileges (including your related accounts). If Kinkify enters into a business agreement involving our API, that agreement’s terms supersede these API Terms.
Transparency is important to us, so we require that you provide accurate registration data when you sign up to our API Terms, and that you keep your registration information up-to-date. You are also required to comply with our access security requirements, such as two-factor authentication, wherever available. It is your responsibility to inform Kinkify of any changes to your registration data by updating your account or contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We may get in touch with you if your account information is incomplete, outdated, or inaccurate, and we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to the API if you fail to provide us with accurate and complete contact information. Remember that your API and account security is your responsibility. You must immediately contact Kinkify at email@example.com if you discover any security concerns or believe your account has been compromised.
Kinkify reserves the right to change these API Terms at any time. If we believe that the changes are material, we’ll send an email to the address associated with your account or message you through Kinkify Messages. You consent to receiving these non-marketing messages, and it’s your responsibility to review these changes.
In order to continue using the API, you must accept the updated API Terms. If we provide notice to you of a material change in the API Terms that require you to affirmatively accept the change, and if you fail to accept the updated API Terms and other applicable policies within 30 days of notice of these updates, your access to the API may be suspended or terminated. For all other updates, your continued use of the API 30 days after we’ve notified you of an update will constitute your acceptance of the updated API Terms.
When using our API, you may interact with user-generated content and users’ personal information. Remember, Kinkify does not own user-generated content — Kinkify’s members do. Moreover, you have a strong obligation to protect user personal information.
We expect your use of the API to be in the spirit of Kinkify. We reserve the right to refuse service or access to the API at any time and for any reason. If Kinkify determines that your application, your content, or your processing of data are not in the letter or spirit of the Terms, we may take action against your account, such as terminating your API access, suspending your account privileges, or terminating all of your related accounts.
Kinkify is always changing, so the data you access through the API may become outdated quickly. You will not display listing content more than 6 hours older than information on the Site or Apps. You will not display any other Kinkify content more than 24 hours older than the content displayed on our Sites. Once you’ve accessed, stored, or displayed Kinkify content, you will not cache or store it longer than is reasonably necessary to provide service to your application’s users.
You’re solely responsible for your use of the API. If you’re offering your application to other Kinkify members, you will provide support, including by prominently displaying an email address on your application and responding to enquiries from members or Kinkify in a timely manner.
We expect your use of Kinkify’s API to be a positive experience for everyone involved. You may not:
In general, we permit reasonable commercial uses of the API. Examples of permitted, reasonable commercial uses include:
Prohibited, unreasonable commercial uses include (but are not limited to):
If you’re not sure if your application has a permitted commercial use or if you exceed the daily call limit, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember to keep it original. You agree not to use Kinkify’s trademarks, logos, signature colors, layout, text, or other materials in a way that suggests endorsement from or affiliation with Kinkify. Similarly, you can’t create or use a mark that’s confusingly similar to our trademarks. Your use of Kinkify’s marks is subject to our Trademark Policy. Since this application is your work, Kinkify’s marks must be less prominent than your own. If you’re publicising or sharing your application, you may say that it was created using Kinkify’s API, but you can’t state that your application is endorsed or certified by Kinkify.
To prevent confusion, we require you to display this notice prominently on your application: “The term ‘Kinkify’ is a trademark of Kinkify, Inc. This application uses the Kinkify API but is not endorsed or certified by Kinkify.”
When you use the API to provide an application, you (and your successors in interest) agree not to sue Kinkify or our members on intellectual property, data breach, security, or data protection claims related to your application, or related to the Kinkify technologies that make your application possible.
In addition, you will not bring any intellectual property infringement claim, nor assist any third party in doing so, against Kinkify or our members, related to your use of, and access to, the API (including how your application interacts with Kinkify, the Site, the Apps, or the Services). For clarification, this paragraph relates to your use of and access to the Kinkify API, not to the content of any Kinkify shop you may control.
