1. Your relationship with Comeet
These Terms are an agreement between you and Comeet Technologies Inc. (“Comeet”).
2. Accepting the Terms
Please read these Terms carefully as you will be deemed to have agreed to these Terms by accessing or using the API. If you do not agree to these Terms do not access or use the API.
3. Applicability of the Terms
These Terms will apply even if you have signed another agreement with Comeet which would otherwise limit the applicability of these Terms to you through an “Entire Agreement” or similar clause. References to “you” in these Terms include the legal entity on whose behalf you are acting (the “Organization”), and you represent that you have the authority to accept these Terms on the Organization’s behalf.
4. About the API
Depending on the permissions granted to you by Comeet, as determined in its sole discretion, the APIs Comeet makes available to you may enable you to integrate your application or service with Comeet’s platform to: (a) access certain data or information through the Comeet platform (the “Comeet Data”), (b) transfer and make available through the Comeet platform certain data or information submitted or provided by you and/or the Organization (the “User Data”; collectively, together with the Comeet Data, the “Data”); or (c) update, modify and/or delete certain Data.
5. Using the API and the Data
Subject to these Terms and the API’s technical restrictions and limitations, you may access and use the API, strictly for and on behalf of the Organization and only for the purposes we have specified for that API, as published from time to time on this webpage.
Use of the API is subject to prior testing by the Organization to ensure that the API is compliant with Organization’s application and that such use will not adversely impact the Organization’s applications or its end-users.
You are solely responsible for all costs, expenses, losses and liabilities incurred and for all activities you undertake in connection with the use of the API and the Data. You assume sole and exclusive responsibility to carry out such actions as you deem appropriate as a result of the Data. Comeet has no responsibility or liability, regarding your reliance upon, or use of, Data, the actions or omissions you take (or refrain from taking) in connection with the Data, or any consequences resulting therefrom.
WE MAY EMPLOY MEASURES TO DETECT AND PREVENT FRAUDULENT OR ABUSIVE USE OF THE API, AS WELL AS MISUSE OF THE API. WE MAY SUSPEND OR TERMINATE YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE API, WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE, IF WE, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION, BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE ENGAGED IN FRAUDULENT OR ABUSIVE USE, OR MISUSE, OF THE API.
You must strictly follow and adhere to the API guidelines and instructions that we convey with respect to each API.
You may use the API only if the resulting use adds significant and primary functionality over and beyond the features of the API that you integrate, include or combine.
Except as relevant law may otherwise require to be permitted, you may not modify, make derivative works of, disassemble, de-compile or reverse engineer any part of the API, or otherwise attempt to discover its underlying code, structure, implementation or algorithms.

You may not use robots, crawlers and similar applications to scrape, harvest, collect or compile content from or through the API. The foregoing shall not apply to acts of scraping, harvesting, collecting or compiling content through the API’s official, documented API, to the extent that the API’s documented functionalities and purposes are consistent with such activities.

You acknowledge and agree that the Comeet Data may include personal data or personally identifiable information subject to applicable data retention, data privacy, data protection and data processing laws and regulations (“Personal Data”). The Organization represents and warrants that it will process the Comeet Data in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations (including data protection or data processing laws and regulations) and only for the recruitment needs of the respective Comeet customer.

If you received candidates’ data from Comeet and do not have a contract with Comeet’s customer specifically allowing you to retain a copy of the data after its removal or pseudonymization, then you must implement an automated mechanism to detect when Comeet Data has been removed or pseudonymized by Comeet and if such is detected, you must promptly delete all copies of the Comeet Data you have. If a client is no longer a customer of Comeet, or if these Terms are terminated as between you and Comeet, or in other instances in which Comeet notifies you, you must promptly delete all Comeet Data within 7 days of Comeet’s notice thereof, unless you have a contract with such Comeet’s customer specifically allowing you to retain a copy of the data.
You hereby represent and warrant that (a) the Organization has all right, license and consent required to provide Comeet with any User Data hereunder; (b) all such User Data complies with applicable law; (c) no User Data infringes any intellectual property or other rights of any third party; and (d) you and/or the Organization shall not submit or add to the Comeet Platform, or otherwise provide Comeet in connection with your and/or the Organization’s use of the API hereunder, with any User Data containing any Personal Data of any third party, without providing notice and/or obtaining the consent of such third party, if and as may be necessary under applicable law to allow Comeet and/or its licensors to lawfully collect, handle, retain, process and use such data in the manners and for the purposes set forth herein.

Organization may terminate these Terms (subject at all times to any agreed minimum terms, payment for early termination, etc) at any time by providing Comeet with a written notice, duly executed by an authorized signatory of the Organization, notifying Comeet of termination and confirming that Organization has ceased any further use of the API and has caused all its users to cease any further use of the API. Termination shall enter into effect upon Comeet’s receipt of said notice.

11. Quality; Modifications; Support; DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY
We will use efforts to have the API operate properly. However, as a API that relies on software and third party networks, infrastructure, hardware and devices, we do not guarantee that the API will operate in an uninterrupted or error-free manner, or that it will always be available, free from errors, omissions or malfunctions. If we receive notice of any failure or malfunction in the API, or if we become aware of them by ourselves, we will make an effort to regain the API’s availability as soon as practicable. However, such incidents will not be considered a breach of these Terms.
We may, at any time and in our sole discretion, discontinue or terminate the operation of the API, or any part thereof, temporarily or permanently, for all users, or for certain Users, without any liability to you or the Organization. We may also suspend the provision of the API, in whole, or in part, for all users, or for certain users, for periodic maintenance or similar purposes, without any liability to you or the Organization.
We may, in our discretion but without being obligated to do so, maintain the API with updates, modifications, adaptations, improvements, or enhancements to the API, or any of its features, user interfaces, designs or any other aspect related to it. We may do so without being obligated to provide you notice thereof. If we enhance the API to include new or additional features or capabilities, we reserve the right to amend these Terms or the applicable fees charged for the API, and obtain your consent to such amendments. If you do not agree to the amendments in their entirety, we reserve the right to terminate these Terms pursuant to subsection 2.3 above. Such updates, modifications, adaptations, improvements, or enhancements to the API may cause errors, glitches or malfunctions in the API’s interoperability with interfacing components. You will have no plea, claim or demand against us, and we will have no liability to you, for any such interoperability issues.
During the Term, Comeet, either directly or with the assistance of third parties, will endeavor to provide you technical support for technical questions, problems and inquiries regarding the API, during Comeet’s business days and hours, and pursuant to Comeet’s then-applicable support scheme, hours and channels. Comeet will attempt to respond to your technical questions, problems and inquiries within a reasonable time. However, Comeet may decline to provide such support for matters that Comeet deems, in its sole discretion, to require unreasonable time, effort, costs or expenses and Comeet makes no warranties to any specific response-time or to the successful or satisfactory resolution of the question, problem or inquiry. For the purpose of our provision of technical support for your technical questions, problems and inquiries, you will cooperate, and work closely with Comeet, to reproduce malfunctions, including conducting diagnostic or troubleshooting activities, as Comeet reasonably requests.
WE DO NOT GUARANTEE, NOR DO WE MAKE ANY REPRESENTATION, AND WE PROVIDE NO WARRANTY REGARDING THE ACCURACY, RELIABILITY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE API OR THE DATA OR REGARDING THE EXPECTED BUSINESS RESULTS, OUTCOME OR OPERATIONAL BENEFITS FROM UTILIZING THE API.THE API IS PROVIDED TO YOU “AS IS” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS” AND YOUR USE OF THE API IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

In the event of a contradiction or inconsistency between these Terms and an underlying Incorporating Agreement, the Incorporating Agreement shall govern, but only to the extent of such contradiction or inconsistency.
