Terms of Service

1. Acceptance of Terms

By using Dedupe.io, you are agreeing to these Terms of Service. You also may be subject to additional guidelines, rules, policies or other terms of service posted on portions of the site. The Site and Services are only available to individuals who (a) are at least 13 years old and (b) either 18 years old or possess legal parental or guardian consent. DataMade may, in its sole discretion, modify or revise these Terms of Service at any time, and you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions. We will notify you by making the revised version available on this web page, and an updated revision date will indicate that changes have been made.

2. Registration & Passwords

To use some of the features on the Site or Services, including the Dedupe.io API, you may be required to create an account. Any required fields that are submitted as part of the registration process must be accurate and complete. You are solely responsible for activity that occurs on your account. You should keep your password and/or API key confidential and agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account. We reserve the right to close your account at any time for any or no reason.

3. Additional Terms & Guidelines

When using the Site or Services, you will be subject to any additional posted guidelines or rules applicable to specific services and features which may be posted from time to time (the “Guidelines”). All such Guidelines are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms. Such additional terms and guidelines include third-party licenses that may apply to other data on Dedupe.io (below).

4. Use of Data and Content

By using the Site you represent and warrant that any User Content posted by you does not contain material or links to material that infringes upon a third party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights including, without limitation, copyright, patent, trademark, trade secrets, or rights of publicity or privacy. You agree to accept full liability and responsibility for all User Content submitted by you or on your behalf for posting on the Site.

5. Prohibited uses

By using the Site or Services, you agree not to:

  • upload any material that:

    • infringes on any copyright or other intellectual property right of any other person or entity;
    • is illegal, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, obscene or offensive;
    • contains software viruses or other code designed to disrupt computing services;
    • as uploaded violates a valid third-party agreement;
  • take any action that interferes or may interfere, based on our sole discretion, with operations of the Site or Services, including but not limited to:

    • placing an unreasonable load on Dedupe.io infrastructure;
    • circumventing security features used to prevent or restrict access to or use of the Site or Services;
    • creating user accounts by automated means;
    • impersonating any person or entity;
    • using the Site or Services for any illegal purpose;
    • using any embeddable or syndicatable features of the Site or Services in a way that alters or circumvents how DataMade designed such features to be used;
    • selling, reselling, redistributing, or sublicensing the Services or otherwise charging third parties for access to the Site or Services. For the avoidance of doubt, these commercial restrictions do not generally apply to data and content accessed via the Services, but rather to the use of the Services themselves — except in certain circumstances noted above (see “Your Contribution and Use of Data and Content”).

6. API Usage

API enables you to programmatically access portions of the Services enabling the development of applications. As noted above, any use of the API constitutes use of the Services and any use of the API is governed by these Dedupe.io Terms of Service. You agree to make users of any third-party applications aware of these terms via a commercially reasonable manner, and you acknowledge that third-party uses of any applications you create from the Dedupe.io API shall be bound by these Terms of Service. You agree not to impose any terms or conditions that conflict with these Terms of Service on such third-party uses. For the avoidance of doubt, materials lawfully uploaded to and made available on Dedupe.io via Dedupe.io API-based applications you develop shall be governed by these terms of use.

Additional terms for API usage: DataMade may at its sole discretion restrict and limit access to Dedupe.io API calls. You agree to abide by these limitations (such as daily usage quotas). You agree not to use methods (such as using multiple IP addresses) to get around these limitations. You also agree to make reasonable good faith efforts to ensure that others’ uses of any tools or software you create that use the Dedupe.io API do not result in any of the prohibited uses under these Terms of Service. DataMade, in its sole discretion, may at any time change the specifications of or restrict or limit access to the APIs. DataMade may suspend or throttle Services until we believe the number of API calls will not exceed capacity limitations. You will not take steps to circumvent any technical measures DataMade may put in place to implement throttling or suspension. DataMade reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge fees for use of or access to specific levels of service around the Dedupe.io API or any portion of the services provided by it. If DataMade decides to charge fees for Services, such fees and additional terms and conditions will be disclosed to you prior to the effective date when such fees or requirements would be imposed. If you do not agree to such charges at the time of the fee disclosure, simply discontinue your use of the Dedupe.io API. You may not use any portion of the services or data provided to you through the Dedupe.io API to offer any product or service that competes with Dedupe.io.

API Termination: Your license to Dedupe.io APIs under these Terms of Service continues until terminated by you or DataMade. You may terminate the license by discontinuing use of the APIs. We may terminate the license to the APIs without liability at any time for any reason, with or without notice. Additionally, your rights to use the APIs will terminate immediately if you violate any of the terms and conditions herein. Upon expiration or termination of the license granted herein, you will discontinue any and all use of the Dedupe.io APIs. You agree that all information or data of any kind, whether text, software, code, music or sound, photographs or graphics, video or other materials (“content”), made available publicly or privately, will be under the sole responsibility of the person providing the said content, or of the person whose user account is used. You agree that this web site may expose you to content that may be objectionable or offensive. The site editor will not be responsible to you in any way for content displayed on this web site, nor for any error or omission.

We shall have no liability whatsoever for the resulting unavailability of the Site or Services or for any loss of data or transactions caused by planned or unplanned system outages or the resultant delay, misdelivery, nondelivery of information caused by such system outages, or any third party acts or any other outages of web host providers or the Internet infrastructure and network external to the Site or Services.
