All capitalized terms not defined here shall have the meaning assigned to them in the Agreement.

“API Partner” means one of our approved partners for API Integrations as communicated in writing by Us to You.
“API Services” means the Our product and services related to and including the BetterCloud API.
“BetterCloud API” means the BetterCloud API Platform and Developer Console which allows certain BetterCloud customers to utilize ingress, egress, and reporting functionality through APIs published by the providers of Non-BetterCloud Applications, as well as APIs accessible within the BetterCloud Developer Console and the BetterCloud API Platform, to extend BetterCloud platform functionality to interact with Non-BetterCloud Applications as defined by the corresponding customer.
“Sensitive Information” includes, but is not limited to, protected health information, social security numbers and other unique identifiers, financial information, payroll information, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, sexual orientation, background check information, and other similar information.

2. Your Use of the BetterCloud API
2.1 Authentication. In order to use and access the BetterCloud API, You must use a supported authentication mechanism. You must create API tokens in the Services, and configure Your access controls in Your Services account. You must keep such API tokens secure (e.g., using an encrypted password management tool) and cannot share such tokens with any third party without Our express consent. Any Services accounts used to create or manage any API Integrations or API configurations cannot be shared with any third party without Our express consent.
2.2 Use Rights to the API Services. During the term of Your subscription to API Services, You can (a) access, use, and make calls to the BetterCloud API in order to develop API Integrations solely for Your internal business purposes and use in connection with the Services, and (b) in Your sole discretion, share the API Integrations with other BetterCloud customers in any community, marketplace or forum of customers that We may create.

You will not: (a) allow access to the API Services, or API Integrations by any third party other than Users or API Partners; (b) violate any usage limits for the BetterCloud API that We may communicate to You; (c) copy, modify, disrupt, disassemble, decompile, or reverse engineer the API Services or API Integrations (to the extent such restriction is permitted by law), or use the API Services or API Integrations to develop any products competitive to the Services; (d) sell, lease, license, rent, assign or transfer the API Services or API Integrations to any third party; (e) circumvent or attempt to circumvent any restrictions on access to or use of the API Services or API Integrations; (f) work around any BetterCloud API limitation using a series of non-API calls, even if such work-arounds are possible by avoiding use of the BetterCloud API; (g) develop or use an API Integration (either directly or through an API Partner) in a manner that results in storing Sensitive Information in the Services or the violation of any third party’s intellectual property; or (h) otherwise use the API Services or API Integrations in any manner or for any purpose not expressly permitted by these API Terms. BetterCloud reserves the right to deny and/or revoke an API Integration’s BetterCloud API access, including based on a reasonable belief that such API Integration’s keys have been, or are reasonably believed to have been, compromised, published, or shared. From time to time, upon our request, You agree to provide Usage Information requested by Us. You hereby grant Us a perpetual and irrevocable right to use and evaluate Usage Information for Our own purposes.
