Introduction:

 

Thank you for your interest in the QUIVIDI APIs. The QUIVIDI APIs are a collection of QUIVIDI APIs that allow you to:

  • access in real time the demographic profile, behavior, mood, position, attentive state of members of the audience in a scene analyzed by a QUIVIDI software (the “QUIVIDI REAL-TIME API”);
  • access raw or aggregated audience and traffic data, as well as information on content, locations, sites and networks where a QUIVIDI software is running, from a QUIVIDI data repository (the “QUIVIDI CLOUD API”);

all of which are collectively called the “QUIVIDI APIs”.

1. Your relationship with QUIVIDI

  • Use of the QUIVIDI APIs is Subject to these Terms. Your use of any of the QUIVIDI APIs is subject to the terms of a legal agreement between you and QUIVIDI SAS, a company incorporated under the laws of France with its Headquarters: 74, rue du Rocher – Paris (75008), France (“QUIVIDI“). This legal agreement is referred to as the“Terms”.
  • Precedence of QUIVIDI APIs Terms. If there is any contradiction between the QUIVIDI APIs Terms and another QUIVIDI APIs-related documents (the “QUIVIDI APIs Documentation”), then the QUIVIDI APIs Terms will take precedence.
  • Changes to the Terms. QUIVIDI reserves the right, from time to time, with or without notice, to make changes to the Terms in QUIVIDI sole and absolute discretion. When these changes are made, QUIVIDI will make a new copy of the Terms available at www.quividi.com/terms-of-use/ or such successor URLs that QUIVIDI may designate from time to time. You understand and agree that if you use the QUIVIDI APIs after the date on which the Terms have changed, QUIVIDI will treat your use as acceptance of the updated Terms. If a modification is unacceptable to you, you may terminate this agreement by ceasing use of the QUIVIDI APIs.

2. Accepting the Terms

2.1 Clicking to Accept or Using the QUIVIDI APIs. In order to use the QUIVIDI APIs you must agree to the Terms. You can accept the Terms by:

(a) clicking to accept or agree to the Terms, where this option is made available to you by QUIVIDI in the user interface for the QUIVIDI APIs; or

(b) using the QUIVIDI’s APIs. In this case, you understand and agree that QUIVIDI will treat your use of the QUIVIDI’s APIs as acceptance of the Terms from that point onwards.

2.2 Authority to Accept the Terms. You represent that you have full power, capacity and authority to accept these Terms. If you are accepting on behalf of your employer or another entity, you represent that you have full legal authority to bind your employer or such entity to these Terms. If you don’t have the legal authority to bind, please ensure that an authorized person from your entity consents to and accepts these Terms.

3. Provision of the QUIVIDI APIs by QUIVIDI

3.1 Limits on Your Use of the QUIVIDI APIs. You acknowledge and agree that QUIVIDI may impose or adjust the limit on the number of transactions you may send or receive through the QUIVIDI APIs; such fixed upper limits may be set by QUIVIDI at any time, at QUIVIDI’s discretion. For further information, see Section 9.1.1(g) below.
3.2 Changes to the QUIVIDI APIs; Termination of the QUIVIDI APIs.

(a) If QUIVIDI in its discretion chooses to cease providing the current version of the QUIVIDI APIs whether through discontinuation of the QUIVIDI APIs or by upgrading the QUIVIDI APIs to a newer version, the current version of the QUIVIDI APIs will be deprecated and become the Deprecated Version of the QUIVIDI APIs. QUIVIDI will issue an announcement if the current version of the QUIVIDI APIs will be deprecated. For a period of 3 months after an announcement (the “Deprecation Period”), QUIVIDI will use commercially reasonable efforts to continue to operate the Deprecated Version of the QUIVIDI APIs and to respond to problems with the Deprecated Version of the QUIVIDI APIs deemed by QUIVIDI in its discretion to be critical. During the Deprecation Period, no new features will be added to the Deprecated Version of the QUIVIDI APIs.
(b) QUIVIDI reserves the right in its discretion to cease providing all or any part of the Deprecated Version of the QUIVIDI APIs immediately without any notice if:

  • Section 11.3(a) (Termination for Breach of Terms) applies; or
  • QUIVIDI is required to do so by law (for example, due to a change to the law governing the provision of the Deprecated Version of the QUIVIDI APIs); or
  • the Deprecated Version of the QUIVIDI APIs relies on data or APIs provided by a thirdparty partner and the relationship with such partner has expired or been terminated or requires QUIVIDI to change the way QUIVIDI provides the data or QUIVIDI APIs through the Deprecated Version of the QUIVIDI APIs; or
  • providing the Deprecated Version of the QUIVIDI APIs could create a substantial economic burden as determined by QUIVIDI in its reasonable good faith judgment; or
  • providing the Deprecated Version of the QUIVIDI APIs could create a security risk or material technical burden as determined by QUIVIDI in its reasonable good faith judgment.

(c) QUIVIDI is constantly innovating in order to provide the best possible experience for its users. At any time prior to discontinuing the current version of the QUIVIDI APIs or upgrading to a new version of the QUIVIDI APIs, QUIVIDI may, in its discretion as part of this continuing innovation, label certain features or functionality of the QUIVIDI APIs as “experimental.” This Section 3.2 of the Terms will not apply to any features or functionality labeled as “experimental”.
