Disclaimer, Limitation of Liability, and Indemnity


DashKite does not represent or warrant that any DashKite APIs are free of inaccuracies, errors, bugs, or interruptions, or are reliable, accurate, complete, or otherwise valid. The DashKite APIs are provided "as is" with no warranty, express or implied, of any kind and DashKite expressly disclaims any and all warranties and conditions, including, but not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, availability, security, title and/or non-infringement. Your use of the DashKite APIs is at your own discretion and risk, and you will be solely responsible for any damage that results from the use of any DashKite APIs including, but not limited to, any damage to your computer system or loss of data.

Limitation of Liability

DashKite shall not be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special or exemplary damages arising out of, or in connection with, use of the DashKite APIs, whether based on tort (including negligence or otherwise), breach of contract, breach of warranty, or any other pecuniary loss, whether or not DashKite has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Under no circumstances shall DashKite be liable to you for any amount.


To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to hold harmless and indemnify DashKite and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, licensors, and employees from and against any third-party claim arising from or in any way related to your use of the DashKite APIs, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages (actual and/or consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees, of every kind and nature. DashKite shall use good faith efforts to provide you with written notice of such claim, suit or action.



Our communications to you and our DashKite APIs may contain DashKite confidential information. DashKite confidential information includes any materials, communications, and information that are marked confidential or that would normally be considered confidential under the circumstances. You may use this Confidential Information only as necessary in exercising your rights granted in this Agreement and you will not disclose it to any third party without DashKite's prior written consent. You agree that you will protect this confidential information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that you would use to protect your own confidential and proprietary information of a similar nature and in no event with less than a reasonable degree of care. DashKite confidential information does not include information that you independently developed, that was rightfully given to you by a third party without confidentiality obligation, or that becomes public through no fault of your own. You may disclose DashKite confidential information when compelled to do so by law if you provide us reasonable prior notice, unless a court orders that we not receive notice.

Modification to these Terms

DashKite may modify the Terms or any portion to, at any time. You should look at the Terms regularly. We'll post notice of modifications to the Terms within the documentation of each applicable API or to this website. By continuing to access or use the DashKite APIs after modifications or revisions to the Terms become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised or modified Terms.


These Terms do not create any agency, partnership or joint venture between the parties. Nothing in the Terms will limit either party's ability to seek injunctive relief. DashKite is not liable for failure or delay in performance to the extent caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control. Any failure to enforce any provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision. If any section (or portion of a section) of these Terms is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the rest of the Terms will remain in effect. These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflict of laws principles. For any dispute relating to these Terms, the parties consent to personal jurisdiction and exclusive venue in San Francisco County, California. These Terms are the entire agreement between you and DashKite relating to its subject and supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements on that subject.
