Your sole and exclusive remedy for any failure or non-performance of the API or SaaS Services shall be for SylLab to use commercially reasonable efforts to adjust or repair its API or SaaS Services.
You hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542 (if You are a California resident), and any similar provision in any other jurisdiction (if You are a resident of such jurisdiction).
You acknowledge that You have read this Agreement, understand it, and agree to be bound by its terms.
Entire Agreement and Execution
This Agreement comprises the entire agreement between You and SylLab, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous proposals, quotes, negotiations, discussions, or agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties regarding its subject matter. In the event of a conflict between the terms of this Agreement and any other document referenced in this Agreement, this Agreement will control. Any preprinted terms on any ordering documents or terms referenced or linked therein will have no effect on the terms of this Agreement and are hereby rejected, including where such ordering document is signed by SylLab. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, which taken together form one binding legal instrument. The parties hereby consent to the use of electronic signatures in connection with the execution of this Agreement, and further agree that electronic signatures to this Agreement will be legally binding with the same force and effect as manually executed signatures.
This Agreement will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. If any provision of the Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision will be modified by the court and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of the Contract will remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
Modifications to the Contract
As our business evolves, we may change these Terms and the other components of this Agreement. SylLab may modify any of the terms and conditions in this Agreement at any time and in its sole discretion with or without notice to You. Modifications may affect Services and may require You to make changes to Your services at Your own cost to continue to be compatible with or interface with API and SaaS Services. You can review the most current version of the API Terms at any time by visiting this page and by visiting the most current versions of the other pages that are referenced in the Agreement. The materially revised Agreement will become effective on the date set forth in our notice, and all other changes will become effective upon posting of the change. If You access our API or SaaS Services after the effective date, that access will constitute Your acceptance of any revised terms and conditions.
Modifications to our API, SaaS Services, and Materials
SylLab is still evolving, and so we need the flexibility to occasionally make changes to our API and SaaS Services, including backwards incompatible changes. Also, parts of our API and SaaS Services are undocumented, including certain methods, events, and properties. Given that these undocumented aspects of our API and SaaS Services may change at any time, You should not rely on their behaviors.
SylLab may, in its sole discretion, release subsequent versions and/or updated versions of the API and SaaS Services and require You to use the most current version by giving You written notice. Modifications may affect Your services and may require You to make changes to Your services at Your own cost to continue to be compatible with or interface with the API and SaaS Services.
SylLab may conduct maintenance on, stop providing, and/or change the method of access to the API and/or SaaS Services at any time, with or without notice to You. For the avoidance of doubt, SylLab, in its sole discretion, may temporarily or permanently suspend Your access to and/or use of the API and/or SaaS Services under this Agreement. SylLab shall not be liable for any cost, expenses, or damage which You may incur as a result of said maintenance, suspension, or changing the method of access to and/or use of API and/or SaaS Services.
If any modification is unacceptable to You, Your sole recourse is to terminate this Agreement. Your continued access to and/or usage of the API and/or SaaS Services following the modifications constitutes Your irrevocably and binding acceptance of the change.
The sections titled “Your Responsibilities,” “Intellectual Property Rights,” “Term and Termination,” “Confidentiality,” “Data Protection,” “Limitation of Liabilities,” “Representations and Warranties,” “Indemnification,” “Disclaimers,” and “Survival,” as well as all of the provisions under the general heading “General Provisions” will survive any termination or expiration of the Contract.
Neither party will be liable by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations on account of events beyond the reasonable control of a party, which may include denial-of-service attacks, a failure by a third-party hosting provider or utility provider, strikes, shortages, riots, fires, acts of God, war, terrorism, and governmental action.
No failure, delay, or omission by either party in exercising any right or remedy under this Agreement or existing law or equity will constitute a waiver of such right or remedy. No waiver under this Agreement will be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the party being deemed to have granted the waiver.
You shall not assign, subcontract, delegate, or transfer any rights and obligations under this Agreement whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the express prior written consent of SylLab. SylLab shall have the right to freely assign or otherwise transfer this Agreement (in whole or part). Any purported assignment in violation of this section is void. SylLab’s sole remedy for any purported assignment in breach of this section will be at its election, including termination of this Agreement upon written notice to the assigning party. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors, and permitted assignees.
You agree to execute any and all documents and take any other actions reasonably required to effectuate the purposes of this Agreement.
The titles of the paragraphs of this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
SylLab’s underlying service providers, business partners, third-party suppliers and providers, members of its network, account providers, licensors, officers, directors, employees, distributors, and agents are expressly made third party beneficiaries of this Agreement.

Nothing in this Agreement is to be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or joint venture relationship between the Parties hereto. Neither Party has any right or authority to assume or create any obligations or to make any representations or warranties on behalf of any other Party, whether express or implied, or to bind the other Party in any respect whatsoever. Each Party may identify the other as a customer or supplier, as applicable.
You agree that any violation or threatened violation of this Agreement may cause irreparable injury to SylLab, entitling SylLab to obtain injunctive or other equitable relief in addition to all legal remedies.
In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover its costs and attorneys’ fees.
You represent that You have the full power, capacity, and authority to accept this Agreement. If You are accepting on behalf of Your employer or another entity, You represent that You have the full legal authority to bind Your employer or such entity to this Agreement.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, USA, without regard to any conflict of laws principles. All claims relating to or arising out of this Agreement, or the breach thereof, whether sounding in contract, tort or otherwise, shall be solely and exclusively brought in to the Federal courts located in San Francisco, California, USA, and the local laws of San Francisco shall apply to any such action related to the above without regard to any conflicts of laws principles. The Parties agree that exclusive venue and jurisdiction for any and all actions brought by the parties or related entities shall be in the Federal courts residing in San Francisco, California. You waive any and all objections and challenges to the exclusive venue and jurisdiction of this section.
Each Party irrevocably submits to the personal jurisdiction and venue of and agrees to service of process issued or authorized by, any court in the Applicable Jurisdiction in any action or proceeding. Neither the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods nor the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act will apply to this Agreement.
You agree that SylLab may provide notice to You by emailing such notice to the email address listed by You during Your registration with SylLab’s Services or Website.

You grant us the right to use Your company name and logo as a reference for marketing or promotional purposes on our website and in other public or private communications with our existing or potential developers and customers, subject to Your standard trademark usage guidelines as provided to us from time-to-time.
Each Party acknowledges that it is aware of, understands, and has complied and will comply with, all applicable U.S. and foreign anti-corruption laws, including without limitation, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”).
Each Party will comply with the export laws and regulations of the United States and other applicable jurisdictions in providing and using the API and SaaS Services. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, You represent that it is not named on any U.S. government denied-party list and will not make the API and/or SaaS Services available to any user or entity that is located in a country that is subject to a U.S. government embargo, or is listed on any U.S. government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
