Terms of Service

Terms of Service Summary

Temnos provides tools and services which help professionals optimize and leverage the value of their content. We offer both free and paid products and services. As a client of Temnos for any of our offerings, paid or free, you have specific rights and responsibilities. These are summarized here, and detailed in the Terms of Service (“TOS”) section below. In addition, use of APIs and/or Beta products and services are detailed in the Temnos API Terms of Service and Beta License Agreement section.  Please read these — they affect you and your relationship with us. Here are the basics:

1. The Relationship

Whenever you use our products, services or websites, you do so under the Terms of Service detailed below, or in accordance with any specific agreement that you may have entered into directly with Temnos. You may terminate your relationship governed by the TOS by closing your account at anytime. Any specific agreements that you may have with Temnos must be terminated in accordance with those agreements. We may decide to stop providing services to you as a general course of business, or as a result of a violation of the TOS.

2. Your Responsibilities

You remain responsible for your actions when you use our products, services or websites. It is your responsibility to look after your account, account passwords, and the like. Activity which occurs on your account is your responsibility. If you feel that your account has been compromised in any way, you are responsible to contact Temnos immediately so that we can take action to assist you in securing or disabling the account.

3. Content

Your content remains your content — period. Temnos asserts no ownership rights in or to your content. We require that you give us a license to the content that you post or run through our online services so that we can host, process, anonymously (that is, without any ability to track the content to you) analyze word semantics for improving our categorical catalogues and corpus, and upon your permission, to share the information with others that you designate. Our content, and the output derived from using our products and services, remains our content — period. Temnos grants you a license to use any of the output derived from the use of our tools and services. Content offered up through some of our services may be derived from other internet locations or private sources, and as such, generally is not ours, and we do not monitor all content that may be served up as a result.

4. Services

Temnos believes, and we hope you will concur, that our products and services provide valuable capabilities that solve real customer problems being encountered every day. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that they will solve your specific problem(s) — though if they don’t, we would like to hear from you so that we can help you use the tools and services better, or so we can enhance our offerings to better meet your needs. Temnos is not responsible for things that might happen to you as a result of using our services.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING: The Terms of Service are what you are agreeing to when you create an account, use any of the Temnos website(s), or use any of the services we offer through our website(s) or API(s). The Terms of Service highlights above are not a substitute for reading the actual terms themselves, which are provided in their entirety below.

Temnos API Terms of Service and Beta License Agreement

1. Licensor and Licensee

This is an agreement between Temnos, Inc. (“Licensor”) and you (“Licensee”), whereby Licensee is being licensed to use the software application programming interfaces provided by Licensor (“API”), with an Effective Date of when Licensee creates a developer account on the Temnos Developer Portal at developer.temnos.com.

2. Type of License

Licensee acknowledges that this is only a limited nonexclusive license.  Licensor is and remains the owner of all titles, rights, and interests in the API and the system that generates the API.

3. Access to APIs

Licensee is permitted to invoke the API on more than one computer system, as long as those systems are owned or leased by Licensee and are under the control of Licensee. Licensee will not sub-license or distribute data retrieved from the API to other parties.  Licensee may make copies of data derived from the API for backup purposes only.  This API Terms of Service and Beta License does not pass to successors and assigns of Licensee.

4. License Fees

In the absence of any other agreement that provides for Licensee to pay Licensor for use of the API, this License allows Licensee, free of charge, to develop and distribute applications based in whole or in part upon the API provided that such applications are not being monetized or commercially exploited.  For example, if you are charging per download for your app in an app store, or if you are earning revenue from in-app advertising, or if you are earning affiliate revenue from links within your app, then you are commercially exploiting your app and would need to upgrade this license to a commercial license by agreement of the parties.

5. Warranty and Limitation of Liability

Licensor warrants to Licensee that Licensee’s use of this API according to the accompanying documentation is not an infringement of any third party’s intellectual property rights.  This limited warranty lasts for a period of 12 months after delivery.  To the extent permitted by law, THE ABOVE-STATED LIMITED WARRANTY REPLACES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND LICENSOR DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, NONINFRINGEMENT, OR OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  No agent of Licensor is authorized to make any other warranties or to modify this limited warranty.  Any action for breach of this limited warranty must be commenced within one year of the expiration of the warranty.  Because some jurisdictions do not allow any limit on the length of an implied warranty, the above limitation may not apply to this Licensee.  If the law does not allow disclaimer of implied warranties, then any implied warranty is limited to 12 months after delivery of the API to Licensee.  Licensee has specific legal rights pursuant to this warranty and, depending on Licensee’s jurisdiction, may have additional rights.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, LICENSOR IS NOT LIABLE TO LICENSEE FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING COMPENSATORY, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, CONNECTED WITH OR RESULTING FROM THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT OR LICENSEE’S USE OF THIS API.

6. Indemnification

Licensee agrees to defend and indemnify Licensor and hold Licensor harmless from all claims, losses, damages, complaints, or expenses connected with or resulting from Licensee’s business operations.

7. Termination

Licensor has the right to terminate this License Agreement and Licensee’s right to use this API upon any material breach by Licensee.

8. Jurisdiction, Term, and Miscellaneous

This License Agreement is the entire and exclusive agreement between Licensor and Licensee regarding this API. This License Agreement replaces and supersedes all prior negotiations, dealings, and agreements between Licensor and Licensee regarding this API.

This License Agreement is governed by the law of California.

This License becomes effective upon the date of creation of the Licensee’s developer account.

This License expires 12 months from the effective date, or 90 days after written notice of termination by Licensor, or until Licensee commercially exploits data derived from the API, whichever is earlier, at which time this beta license will automatically terminate unless Licensee elects the option of upgrading from this License to an ongoing commercial license by agreement of the two parties.
