AnyConnect Terms of Service
Effective Date: September 1, 2019
AnyConnect Private Limited and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “AnyConnect” or “we”) provide software and Web services which enable onboarding, access control, streaming, recording, and vision for smart cameras and apps (our “Services”). We enable developers to build and deploy innovative products that leverage our Services (“Products”).
These terms of service (“Terms”) govern the use by developers of our application programming interfaces (“APIs”), our platform libraries (“Platform Libraries”), and any documentation, source code, data, reports, support, and other materials we make available to develop Products (collectively with our APIs and Platform Libraries, our “Developer Materials”).
To create an AnyConnect account and use our Services and Developer Materials, you must read and accept these Terms by clicking on the “I Accept” button or other mechanism provided. If you create an AnyConnect account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then “you” includes you, that entity, its subsidiaries and affiliates, you represent that you have the authority to bind the entity to these Terms, and you accept these Terms on behalf of that entity, unless that entity has a separate written agreement with AnyConnect governing its use of our Services and Developer Materials, in which case that agreement will govern your account and use of our Services and Developer Materials.
To use the Developer Materials, you must create and maintain an AnyConnect account. AnyConnect may withhold or withdraw approval of your account for any reason. When creating an account, you must provide accurate, complete, and current information as requested. You must also keep that information accurate, complete, and current after creating your account.
2. Right to use our Developer Materials
AnyConnect grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, right to use our Developer Materials, solely to the extent necessary for you to develop Product(s) that operate in connection with our Services and not products or services that are competitive with our Services or Developer Materials.
Some of the software included with or required by our Developer Materials may be offered under an open source license. Open source software licenses constitute separate agreements. To the limited extent any open source software license expressly supersedes these Terms, the open source license instead sets forth your agreement with AnyConnect for the applicable open source software only.
You may not copy, distribute, lease, modify, or sell, any part of our Services or Developer Materials, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of our Services or Developer Materials.
You will use our Developer Materials only as permitted by these Terms and applicable laws, including without limitation laws regarding data protection, privacy, data transfer, and software. You also will require End Users of your Product(s) to comply with these Terms and applicable laws.
3. Right to sublicense our Platform Libraries
AnyConnect grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, right to sublicense our Platform Libraries, solely to the extent necessary for you to deploy your Product(s) to end users thereof (“End Users”). You are solely responsible for all use of our Platform Libraries by your End Users.
All sublicenses to our Platform Libraries must contain the following terms:
This product uses services and incorporates software provided by AnyConnect Private Limited and its subsidiaries, affiliates, and licensors (the “AnyConnect Services”).
All right, title, and interest in the AnyConnect Services is owned by AnyConnect Private Limited and its affiliates, subsidiaries, and licensors.
You will not decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer, or otherwise attempt to recover the source code of the AnyConnect Services.
You will not assign, lease, rent, or transfer the AnyConnect Services.
Any support, liabilities, warranties, and remedies are provided by [You], and not by AnyConnect Private Limited or its subsidiaries, affiliates, or licensors.
4. No Multiplexing, Competitive Services or Software
You may not combine Product(s) or End Users through multiplexing or any other process which reduces the number of Products or End Users registered with our Services or Developer Materials.
Your Product(s) may not use any other service, hardware, software, or any other process which is competitive with our Services or Developer Materials.
5. Changes to our Services and Developer Materials
We will change the features, functions, and interfaces of our Services and Developer Materials, including our APIs, from time to time. You must ensure that calls or requests your Product(s) make to the APIs are compatible with our then-current APIs. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid making changes to the APIs that are not backwards compatible, and we will use reasonable efforts to notify you before implementing such changes.
7. Use of Marks
Subject to these Terms, we both grant each other the right to use and display each other’s name and logo (“Licensor Marks”) on our respective websites and in other promotional materials solely in connection with each of our respective activities under these Terms. All such use of Licensor Marks will be in accordance with each other’s applicable usage guidelines and will inure to the benefit of Licensor.
8. Fees, Payments, and Taxes
You agree to pay the fees set forth in your “Fee Schedule”, which is either our standard schedule of fees, as we revise from time to time, and/or any other order forms for our Services and Developer Materials ordered by you and accepted in writing by us.
You are responsible for and agree to pay all taxes arising from use of our Services and Developer Materials under these Terms, including without limitation all import, sales, use, and withholding taxes.
If you fail to comply with these Terms in a way which would reduce the fees arising from your use of our Services and Developer Materials, you will be responsible for and agree to pay all fees which would have arisen from your use of our Services and Developer Materials in accordance with these Terms.
We may at our discretion permit you to pay amounts due under these Terms in arrears. You agree to make all payments due hereunder within 7 days of the corresponding invoice date.
Your payment obligations cannot be cancelled or set off, and any fees paid will not be refundable. If any payment due from you is overdue, we may assess and you agree to pay a late fee in the amount of 2% per month or part thereof, and the full amount of any commitments under your Fee Schedule will accelerate and become immediately due and payable.
You must notify us in writing if you dispute any portion of any fees payable or paid by you under these Terms, within 1 month of the applicable charge, in which case we will work together with you to resolve the applicable dispute promptly. If you do not provide us with this written notice of your fee dispute within this 1 month period, you will not be entitled to dispute any fees paid or payable by you.
If your use of our Services and Developer Materials exceeds the amounts prepaid by you or if you fail to pay any amounts due by you under these Terms, we may suspend access to our Services and Developer Materials under your account without prior notice to you. We will have no liability for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that you may incur as a result of any such suspension.
You may choose to, or AnyConnect may invite you to submit comments, ideas, or suggestions about our Services and Developer Materials (“Ideas”), including how to improve our Services and Developer Materials. By submitting any Ideas, you agree that your submissions are voluntary, gratuitous, unsolicited, and without restriction and will not place AnyConnect under any fiduciary or other obligation. AnyConnect may use, copy, modify, publish, or redistribute your Ideas for any purpose and in any way without any compensation or other obligation to you. You also agree that AnyConnect does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to AnyConnect, developed by its employees, or obtained from other sources.
