API Terms of Use

Last modified: December 2, 2014

This document governs the Terms of Use (the “Terms of Use”) under which you may access and use the application programming interface that is made available on this website (the “API”), and the data transmitted through the API (the “Workfrom Content”), as provided below.

This document incorporates the terms of the following additional documents, including all future amendments or modifications thereto (collectively, and together with this document, the “API Agreement”): Display Requirements, Workfrom Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. If you disagree with the Display Requirements, Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, or any of the terms below, Workfrom does not grant you a license to use the API.

Workfrom Inc. (“Workfrom”) reserves the right to update and change, from time to time, these Terms of Use and all documents incorporated by reference. You can always find the most recent version of these Terms of Use at https://workfrom.co/developer/api-terms.

  1. Grant of License.

    1. The API is owned by Workfrom and is licensed to you on a worldwide (except as limited below), non-exclusive, revocable, non-sublicenseable, non-transferable license to (i) access and use the API to receive the Workfrom Content; (ii) display the Workfrom content on your site; and (iii) reproduce and display the Workfrom name and logo solely in order to comply with the Display Requirements.
    2. API Modifications. Workfrom has the right but not the obligation to release subsequent versions of the API and to require you to obtain and use the most recent version. Workfrom may remove and/or cease supporting previous versions of the API. The API is currently provided for free, and while we have no plans to charge developers for access, we do reserve the right to charge for the API in the future.
    3. Support. Workfrom has no obligation to provide you or your users with support. You are solely responsible for providing user support and any other technical assistance for your application. Workfrom may redirect users and potential users of your application to your email address associated with your developer account for purposes of answering general application inquiries and support questions.
    4. Monitoring your Usage. You agree to provide us with access to your application and/or other materials related to your use of the API as reasonably requested by us to verify your compliance with these Terms and as may be necessary to audit your use, display and storage of the Workfrom Content. You agree that we may monitor online applications and you agree not to block or interfere with such efforts by Workfrom.
    5. Usage Limitations. Workfrom may limit the number of network calls that your application may make via the API, and/or the maximum file size, and/or the maximum Content that may be accessed, or anything else about the API and the Content it accesses as Workfrom deems appropriate in its sole discretion. Workfrom may change such default usage limits at any time and without notice. In addition to its other rights under the API Agreement, Workfrom may utilize technical measures to prevent over usage and/or stop usage of the API by an application after any usage limitations are exceeded.
    6. Prohibitions on Content. Unless expressly permitted by the content owner or by applicable law, you will not, and will not permit your end users or others acting on your behalf to, do the following with content returned from the APIs:
      1. Scrape, build databases, or otherwise create permanent copies of such content, or keep cached copies longer than permitted by the cache header;
      2. Copy, translate, modify, create a derivative work of, sell, lease, lend, convey, distribute, publicly display, or sublicense to any third party;
      3. Misrepresent the source or ownership; or
      4. Remove, obscure, or alter any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary rights notices; or falsify or delete any author attributions, legal notices, or other labels of the origin or source of material.
    7. Display Requirements. Attribution and Goodwill. You must comply with all aspects of the Display Requirements in naming your application and must clearly and conspicuously attribute the source of all Workfrom Content as received from Workfrom in accordance with the Display Requirements. You agree that Workfrom has the right to require submission of your application and/or other materials to Workfrom so that we can verify your compliance with the Display Requirements. If we make such a request, you must submit your application or other requested materials via the method prescribed by Workfrom. All Content provided by Workfrom remains the property of Workfrom, its licensees or its licensors, as applicable.
    8. Appropriate Conduct and Usage Restrictions. You are responsible for your own conduct while using the API and for any consequences thereof.

      • distribute Content to any third party other than directly to end users through your own application;
      • charge, directly or indirectly, any fee (including any unique, specific, or premium charges) for access to the Content or your integration of the APIs in your application, or use the APIs to build an enterprise application (e.g., that you distribute to other companies);
      • use or display titles in an application for search and discovery of content linking to competing services;
      • obtain, display or use more Content through the APIs than is minimally required to run the application created using the particular Key;
      • modify, add to, remove, overlay or obscure any of the Content, including text, graphics, hyperlinks or legal notices contained therein, except that (a) with respect to graphic images, you may re-size such images while maintaining the same relative proportions of the image, and (b) where technically permitted by the applicable API, you may omit some of the Content offered through the API so long as you do not alter the Content you choose to display;
