API Terms of Service
Last updated: August 24, 2022
The following terms and conditions (the “API Terms of Service“) govern your access to and use of our proprietary application programming interface, including our ‘API’, ‘OrderGrid API,’ ‘Partner API,’ ‘REST API,’ and ‘Public API’ (all versions) (collectively, the “OrderGrid API“) and the related documentation, the current version of which is located at https://ordergrid.com/api-terms-of-service, as may be updated by OrderGrid from time to time (the “OrderGrid API Documentation“), all of which are designed to facilitate your access to, and use of, our products and services. These API Terms of Service form an agreement between OrderGrid Inc. (“OrderGrid“, “us“, “we“, “our“) and you. The term “you” refers to the person or entity accessing, downloading, implementing, storing or otherwise using the OrderGrid API and OrderGrid Documentation (“use“ or “using” in these API Terms of Service will mean any of the foregoing). For purposes of these API Terms of Service, capitalized terms shall have the meanings in these API Terms of Service. Capitalized terms utilized in these API Terms of Service and not defined have the meaning set forth in OrderGrid’s standard Terms of Service, OrderGrid’s Dark Store Terms of Service or such other applicable agreement (“Service Agreement”) that permits Client to access, and provide its personnel with access, to the Platform. These API Terms of Service are incorporated into and forms part of the Service Agreement and comprises a variation, and is supplemental to, the Service Agreement. In the event of any conflict between the Service Agreement and these API Terms of Service, the terms and conditions of this API Terms of Service shall control in respect of the OrderGrid API only. Except to the extent expressly superseded or modified in this API Terms of Service, the terms and conditions of the Service Agreement will apply to this API Terms of Service and remain in full force and effect.
BY USING ANY ORDERGRID API AND AUTHORIZING OR PERMITTING ANY PERSON TO ACCESS OR USE THE ORDERGRID API, YOU AGREE TO THESE API TERMS OF SERVICE, ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY AND COMPLY WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET OUT IN THESE API TERMS OF SERVICE, AS AMENDED FROM TIME TO TIME IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 1. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE API TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU WILL IMMEDIATELY CEASE ANY FURTHER USE OF THE ORDERGRID API. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANTY TO US THAT YOU HAVE CAPACITY TO ENTER INTO THIS LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT. IF YOU ARE USING THE ORDERGRID API ON BEHALF OF ANOTHER PERSON OR PERSONS, YOU HEREBY REPRESENT AND WARRANT TO US THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BIND EACH SUCH PERSON TO THESE API TERMS OF SERVICE, IN WHICH CASE THE TERM “CLIENT” SHALL REFER TO SUCH ENTITY AND ITS AFFILIATES. IF THE INDIVIDUAL ACCEPTING THESE API TERMS OF SERVICE DOES NOT HAVE SUCH AUTHORITY, OR DOES NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, SUCH INDIVIDUAL MUST NOT ACCEPT THESE API TERMS OF SERVICE AND MAY NOT USE THE ORDERGRID API. BY USING THE ORDERGRID API OR ORDERGRID DOCUMENTATION, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU ARE A CLIENT OR AUTHORISED USER OF A CLIENT THAT HAS ENTERED INTO THE TERMS OF SERVICE, THE DARK STORE TERMS OF SERVICE OR OTHER SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH US FOR THE PLATFORM, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES THROUGH WHICH THE ORDERGRID API IS INTENDED TO INTEROPERATE. THESE API TERMS OF SERVICE REPLACE ANY PRIOR AGREED TO TERMS AND CONDITIONS BETWEEN ORDERGRID AND YOU RELATED TO THE ACCESS AND USE OF THE ORDERGRID API.
THE ORDERGRID API MAY NOT BE ACCESSED FOR PURPOSES OF MONITORING THEIR AVAILABILITY, PERFORMANCE OR FUNCTIONALITY, OR FOR ANY OTHER BENCHMARKING OR COMPETITIVE PURPOSES. OUR DIRECT COMPETITORS ARE PROHIBITED FROM ACCESSING THE ORDERGRID API.
