Your registration for, or use of, the Services shall be deemed to be your approval and execution of this Agreement including your covenant to abide by the Terms including those related to any materials available on the Website. For reference, a Definitions section is included at the end of these Terms. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein have the meaning set forth in that section.

1. Uses.

You agree that your use of the technologies, tools, applications, and products made available from time to time on the Website (as further defined in these Terms and the Website, the “Services”) are used solely in conjunction with the extraction of data from publicly accessible websites (including sites which may require a user login). In all cases where copyrighted and or confidential data may be included as part or all of the extracted data, you agree to comply with all copyright laws and rules covering such data including (but not limited to) the reproduction and resale of such data. You agree that Apify will not be held responsible for legal liabilities incurred through the use or misuse of data obtained through the Services.

You are responsible for all activity occurring under your user account(s) and shall abide by all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws, treaties and regulations in connection with your use of the Services, including those related to data privacy, international communications and the transmission of technical or personal data. You shall: (i) notify Apify immediately of any unauthorized use of any password or account or any other known or suspected breach of security; (ii) report to Apify immediately and use reasonable efforts to stop immediately any copying or distribution of Content or infringement of Apify Technology that is known or suspected by you or your Users; and (iii) not impersonate another Apify user or provide false identity information to gain access to or use the Services.

2. Services.

3. License Grant and Restrictions.

Apify hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide right and license to use the Services, solely for your own internal purposes, subject to the Terms of this Agreement. All rights not expressly granted to you are reserved by Apify and its licensors.

You may not access the Services if you are a direct competitor of Apify, except with Apify’s prior written consent. In addition, you may not access the Services for purposes of monitoring its availability, performance or functionality, or for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes. Any action of this kind is likely to result in serious harm to Apify for which you agree that Apify will be entitled to immediate injunctive relief together with other legal and equitable remedies.

You shall not (i) license, sublicense, sell, resell, transfer, assign or distribute the Services in any way other than as permitted in writing by Apify; (ii) modify or make derivative works based upon the Services; (iii) create Internet “links” to the Services or “frame” or “mirror” any content of the Website or the Services on any other server or wireless or Internet-based device; or (iv) modify, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or access any computer code relating to the Services in order to (a) build a competitive product or service, (b) build a product using similar ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Services, or (c) copy any ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Services.

4. Targets; Your Target Website(s).

As a service provider, in the event that you have a dispute with a targeted data source (i.e. website or web application) in relation to the use (or misuse) of any of the Services, you release the Website (and Apify and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

5. User Content.

The Website allows you and other users to import, post, publish, create new applications based on, and otherwise extract and use data from publicly available websites and other data sources found on the web. This data is referred to herein as “User Content.”

You are solely responsible for User Content and the consequences of Apify or any third party importing, posting, publishing, creating new applications based on, and otherwise using such User Content. In connection with any such User Content, you affirm, represent, and/or warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions related to the User Content and its use by you, Apify, and any other third party

In connection with User Content, you further agree that you will not: (i) extract and publish data that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant Apify all of the rights and licenses granted herein; (ii) publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Apify or any third party; (iii) extract and publish material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; (v) impersonate another person. Apify does not endorse any User Content or any data, opinion, recommendation, or advice expressed therein, and it expressly disclaims any and all liability in connection with any User Content. Apify does not permit copyright infringing activities or infringement of intellectual property rights on the Website, and will remove all Content and User Content if properly notified that such Content or User Content infringes on another’s intellectual property rights. Apify may remove or choose not to publish any Content or User Content without prior notice. Apify may also terminate your access to the Website, if you are determined to be a repeat infringer. A repeat infringer is anyone who has been notified of infringing activity more than once and/or has had any User Content removed from the Website more than once. Apify also reserves the right to decide whether Content or User Content is appropriate and complies with this Agreement for violations other than copyright infringement and violations of intellectual property law, such as, but not limited to, pornography, obscene or defamatory material. Apify may remove or choose not to publish any such User Content and/or terminate your access for uploading such material in violation of this Agreement at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.

6. Legal Disclaimer and Warning.

It is up to you to determine the legality of the way you use our Services. Apify will never knowingly build or host any data extraction or data import agent that is obviously illegal. Apify assumes that the agent you build will be used legally and ethically and that you have obtained permission, if necessary to use it on the targeted data source. Apify reserves the right to refuse service to anyone wishing to use the Services in an illegal manner.

Apify may immediately suspend your use of the Services if it is contacted by your targeted data extraction source, website, or repository and asked to cease all extraction activity. If such an event occurs, Apify will not disclose your information without a court order mandating it to do so unless Apify in its best judgment determines that there would be an adverse consequence if it does not. If however Apify receives a court order demanding the release of your information to a third party, it will comply. If such action becomes necessary, you agree to indemnify and hold Apify and (as applicable) its parent(s), subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents, contractors and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party arising from any complaint, suit, disagreement or other repercussions resulting from your use of the Services.
