- API and Content Description. Licensee desires to license certain of simPRO’s (“Company”) application programming interfaces and their associated tools and documentation (“APIs”), that are designed to permit Licensee to receive data and content (“Content”) from Company’s proprietary products so that Licensee can create an application or service or enhance an existing application or service (Licensee’s “Application”).
- API and Content Licence. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Company grants Licensee a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, non-assignable licence under Company’s intellectual property rights during the term of this Agreement to: (a) use the APIs to develop, test, and support the Application; (b) distribute or allow access to Licensee’s integration of the APIs within the Application to end users of the Application; and (c) display the Content received from the APIs within the Application. Licensee has no right to distribute or allow access to the stand-alone APIs.
- Developer Documentation. Licensee’s use of the APIs and display of the Content must comply with the technical documentation, usage guidelines, call volume limits, and other documentation (“Developer Documentation”) maintained at Company’s developer site located at https://developer.simprogroup.com/ (“Developer Site”). In the event of any conflict between the Developer Documentation and this Agreement, this Agreement shall prevail.
- Restrictions. Except as expressly authorised under this Agreement or by Company in writing, Licensee shall not: (i) Disclose or provide the APIs to any person or entity other than to Licensee’s employees or independent contractors who are individuals, provided: (a) such independent contractors enter into an agreement with Licensee at least as protective of Company’s rights as this Agreement; and (b) Licensee hereby agrees to be responsible for, and liable to Company for, any breaches of such agreements by Licensee’s independent contractors, (ii) use the APIs for any illegal, unauthorised or otherwise improper purposes, or in any manner which would violate this Agreement or the Developer Documentation, or breach any laws or regulations, or violate the rights of third parties; (iii) remove any legal, copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights notices contained in or on materials Licensee receive or access pursuant to this Agreement, including but not limited to, the APIs, the Developer Documentation, and the Content; (iv) solicit or induce or attempt to induce, directly or indirectly, a customer of the Company to terminate or reduce its engagement with the Company; (v) sell, lease, share, transfer, sublicense or fail to protect the confidentiality of any Content obtained through the APIs, directly or indirectly, to any third party, including any data broker, ad network, ad exchange, or other advertising monetisation-related party; (vi) use the APIs in a manner that, as determined by Company in its sole discretion, exceeds reasonable request volume, constitutes excessive or abusive usage, or otherwise fails to comply or is inconsistent with any part of the Developer Documentation; (vii) use the APIs in, or to connect to, an application that competes with products or services offered by Company; (viii) use the APIs in conjunction with, or combine content from the APIs with, Company content obtained through scraping or any other means outside the official Company APIs; (ix) interfere with or disrupt Company services or servers or networks connected to Company services, or disobey any requirements, procedures, policies or regulations of networks connected to Company services, or transmit any viruses, worms, defects, Trojan horses, or any items of a destructive nature through your use of the APIs; or (x) copy adapt, reformat, reverse-engineer, disassemble, decompile, download, translate or otherwise modify the APIs, Content, Company’s website other content or services, or any of our other services, through automated or other means. This Agreement does not include any right for Licensee to use any trademark, service mark, trade name or any other mark of Company or any other party or licensor. No rights or licenses are granted except as expressly set forth herein.
- Proprietary Rights. As between the parties, Company owns all rights, title, and interest in and to the APIs and to all output and executables of the APIs, and, subject to the foregoing, Licensee owns all rights, title, and interest in and to the Application. Except to the limited extent expressly provided in this Agreement, neither party grants, and the other party shall not acquire, any right, title or interest (including, without limitation, any implied licence) in or to any property of the first party. All rights not expressly granted herein are deemed withheld.
- User Agreements. You shall enter into a valid and binding end user licence agreement with all users of your Application (the “EULA”) that contain provisions that contain all of the restrictions on the use of the Content as those contained in this Agreement. Additionally such EULA shall contain limitations of liability and warranty disclaimers with respect to the Content consistent with the limitations contained herein.
- Fees. Licensee shall access Company’s public APIs at no charge.
- Support. Licensee agrees to report to Company any errors or difficulties discovered and the characteristic conditions and symptoms of such errors and difficulties. Company is in no way obligated to provide Licensee with any error correction or support, but may provide whatever error correction and/or support services Company may determine in its sole discretion (and anything it provides in connection therewith will be deemed part of the API).
- Confidentiality. The API (including, without limitation, all improvement, derivatives, modifications and the like) constitutes Company’s confidential information (“Confidential Information”). Licensee hereby agrees (i) to hold the Confidential Information in confidence and to take reasonable precautions to protect such Confidential Information (including, without limitation, all precautions the Licensee employs with respect to its own confidential materials), (ii) not to divulge any Confidential Information to any third person (except consultants, subject to the conditions stated below), (iii) not to use any Confidential Information except for the purposes set forth in this Agreement, and (iv) not to copy or reverse engineer any Confidential Information. Any employee or consultant given access to the Confidential Information must have a legitimate “need to know” and shall be similarly bound in writing. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that due to the unique nature of the Company’s Confidential Information, there can be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its obligations hereunder and therefore, that upon any such breach or any threat thereof, Company shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever remedies it might have at law.
- Indemnity. Licensee agrees that Company, its affiliates and their directors, officers and employees (Indemnified Parties), shall have no liability whatsoever for (i) any use Licensee makes of the API or (ii) Licensee’s Application. Licensee shall indemnify and hold harmless the Indemnified Parties from any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and fees (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from (i) or (ii).
- Warranty Disclaimer. The parties acknowledge that the API, Content and any services are provided “AS IS.” TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, COMPANY AND ITS LICENSORS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES RELATING TO THE API OR ANY SERVICES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY WARRANTIES AGAINST INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time. Any termination of this Agreement shall also terminate the licenses granted hereunder. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, Licensee shall destroy and remove from all computers, hard drives, networks, and other storage media all copies of Company’s Confidential Information, and shall so certify to Company that such actions have occurred. Sections 4, 5 and 9 through 14 shall survive termination of this Agreement.

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of Queensland, Australia without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of law and without application of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. All disputes arising in connection with this Agreement shall be subject to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue of Queensland, Australia. No waiver of rights under this Agreement by either party shall constitute a subsequent waiver of any right under this Agreement and all waivers must be in writing. In the event that any term of this Agreement is held by a court to be unenforceable, such provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
