You must be at least 18 years old to enter into this Agreement and to use the Services. By using the Services, you represent that you (i) have read, understood and agree to be bound by this Agreement and (ii) are at least 18 years old.
If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind such entity to this agreement, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity. All references in the Agreement to “access” or “use” (or similar phrase) by you are deemed to include access or use by such affiliate or third party, and you acknowledge and agree that a breach by such party of any provision of this Agreement shall be deemed a breach by you.

Certain elements of the Services may only be accessible via use of our API and/or via the agreement to additional Order Form terms.
The Services are primarily intended for use by property management companies, landlords and owners, real estate brokers, agents and potential renters and we may offer different tiers of Services, including at different price points and with different features and functionality, to our varying user base. We may also offer geographically distinct or limited versions of the Services.
The Services that you sign up and register for will be the only version of the Services that you are entitled to access.
Access to the Services
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and in some cases, your agreement to an applicable Order Form, Nestio may provide the Services, which are selected by you, solely for your own use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party. Certain subsets of the Services may require that you be a member in good standing of certain trade groups, and you will not be allowed to access the subset that requires trade group membership unless you can prove that you are a member in good standing.
You may only access and use the Services, including but not limited to any Content and/or End User Information (each as later defined herein) for the Permitted Purpose and otherwise solely as permitted under the terms of this Agreement. As used herein and unless you otherwise receive our express written consent in any case, the “Permitted Purpose” means if you are a property management company, landlord and owner, real estate broker, or agent for the managing, leasing and marketing of your inventory and/or solely to search and locate available listings and to communicate with property management companies, landlords and owners with real estate brokers, agents and/or potential renters. If you access Website Services or API Services or any other specific Services set forth in an Order Form, your Permitted Purpose may be expanded or otherwise further delineated thereon.
Registration and Security
As a condition to using the Services, you must have a connected device that meets our then-current operating requirements. Additional requirements may be applicable for additional services, such as the API Services. You may also be required to create a Services account and provide certain registration information to us. You agree that any information that you provide to us (at registration or otherwise) will be accurate, complete, and that you will keep it up to date. Your failure to do so will constitute a breach of this Agreement, which may result in termination of your access to and use of the Services. You agree to immediately notify us of any suspected unauthorized use of your account or any breach of your account’s or the Service’s security. We may refuse Service membership or access to anyone.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Nestio password and account and for all activities that occur in connection with these.
As a condition to using certain of the Services, you may be required to meet certain occupational or industry criteria. Nestio may limit the use of Nestio Listings to property management companies, landlords and owners, real estate brokers, agents and potential renters, and other individuals and entities involved in the business of renting and selling real property. Nestio may require license information and employment verification from some users.
You irrevocably authorize Nestio to disclose your personally identifiable information at the request of any state, federal or other governmental agency or in response to any judicial process (including, without limitation, a subpoena).
Nestio may change, suspend or discontinue the Services for any reason, at any time, including the availability of any feature or Content. Nestio may restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. If at any time you do not agree to these terms and conditions, you must terminate your use of the Services. You will still remain liable for any obligations incurred or charges accrued on or before the date of termination.
You certify to Nestio that if you are an individual (i.e., not a corporation) you are at least 18 years of age. You also certify that you are legally permitted to use the Services and access the Site.
While Nestio intends to make the Services available on a twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week basis, there will be occasions when the Services will be interrupted for maintenance, upgrades and emergency repairs or due to failure service providers or other backend components, of telecommunications links and equipment or other circumstances outside of Nestio’s reasonable control. Nestio intends to take reasonable steps to minimize such disruption where practically possible, at Nestio’s discretion. However, Nestio will not be liable in any event to you or any other party for any suspension, modification, discontinuance or lack of availability of the Site, the Services, Nestio Content or Your User Content (each as defined herein), your Nestio Site (as defined herein) and/or the API.
Certain aspects of the Services may be made available to you for free. However, we do not guarantee to offer or maintain any free Services tiers and we may add charges to existing tiers at any time upon notice.
When you order any paid Services, the fee terms will be presented to you within the Services, prior to your purchase. At that time, we may communicate additional terms relating to your purchase. Any such terms will become a part of this Agreement. If you do not agree to any such term, your only remedy is not to complete the order. All amounts due will be paid in US Dollars. Any pricing terms that are presented to you on your Order Form may have been rounded up or down to the nearest whole dollar numbers for display purposes. In that case, your actual charges may reflect a slightly higher or lower actual amount that will in no case be more than 99 cents higher or lower than the price that was presented to you on your Order Form. We may change our then-current pricing at any time via notice on the Site, email or other communication to you. However, we will not increase pricing for any Services that you are currently receiving unless we provide notice to you via email with an option for you to opt-out and cancel your membership.
- Automatic Renewal. Most of our Services, including our data and marketing platforms, Website Services and API Services are subscription-based and automatically renew until either party terminates. This means that (i) we will automatically charge you a recurring membership fee for the period stated during your purchase path or in your Order Form and (ii) your subscription membership will automatically renew, for the same period as the initial term, unless you notify us in writing, at least thirty (30) days prior to the then-current termination date. Unless your online purchase path or Order Form states a specific term (such as annual), your subscription Services will be monthly and will continue, on a monthly basis, until you terminate and you will be charged automatically on the monthly anniversary of the start of your Services.
- Pricing; Automatic Increases. Your initial subscription Services will be charged as set forth in your Order Form. Upon the automatic renewal of any term of Services that is at least 12 months and upon any subsequent 12-month renewal period, we may automatically (without advance notice to you) increase the price of your subscription Services by up to 10% of the prior rate (excluding any taxes) for your renewal term. You hereby agree to any such increase as a condition to our allowing your membership to renew. Any such increase will be communicated to you after you have renewed but you can always contact us prior to your membership expiration date to find out what, if any, mandatory pricing increase will be attached to your subscription renewal.
- Other Membership Changes. In addition to our automatic price increases, we may seek to further increase your subscription pricing or otherwise change your subscription terms but in that case, we will notify you and you may decline to accept such change and terminate your membership.
- Non-Renewal Notice. You can send us your non-renewal notice for your subscription membership by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org at least thirty days prior to your membership expiration.
Your Order Form or online purchase path will state whether your Services will be payable automatically or via an invoicing process.
- Automatic Billing. For automatic billing, by providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of any order made to your Services account. We may issue a charge authorization after you place your order and charge you at a later point and/or we may charge you immediately upon purchase. If your payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be refused, suspended or cancelled. If you want to change or update your payment information, when you make your next purchase, you can choose to add a new card or payment method and swap it at that time. You may also contact our customer care at email@example.com.
- Invoiced Billing. For Services billed via invoice, unless we expressly agree otherwise on your Order Form, your payment will be due within seven (7) calendar days of the invoice date. You may also contact our billing department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any fees payable hereunder are not refundable and you will remain liable for any obligations incurred or charges accrued before your Services are terminated. Further, you will not be permitted to re-activate a terminated Services account if you have any outstanding, owed payment obligations, until you repay such obligations (see “Termination”).
Taxes; Other Charges
Our posted prices exclude all banking fees, taxes, levies, duties or other like amounts that may be assessed by taxing authorities or any other governmental entity arising as a result of the provision of Services by Nestio to you under this Agreement (excluding only United States income taxes imposed on Nestio). Any such taxes or other charges may be added to your total charges and will be payable by you. In the event you are required to withhold any portion of the Services fees due to payments to banks or taxing authorities, (i) you agree to do so and to indemnify Nestio for any liability resulting from your failure to make (or accurately make) such withholdings, and (ii) Nestio reserves the right to adjust the pricing of the Services so that you are responsible for payment to Nestio of the full amount of the Services, net of any such withholdings. We will communicate any such charges on your invoice, when they become due and payable. If you do not agree to any taxes or other specifically added charges added to your order, do not confirm the order and complete the purchase. For any subscription Services, if you do not agree to any changes in such added charges, your only remedy is to cancel your membership.

NO PERSON ACTING ON NESTIO’S BEHALF HAS ANY AUTHORITY TO MAKE OR CLAIM ANY REPRESENTATION, TERM, PROMISE, CONDITION, STATEMENT, WARRANTY, OR INDUCEMENT (COLLECTIVELY, "INDUCEMENT") NOT EXPRESSED HEREIN. BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE NOT RELYING ON ANY INDUCEMENT THAT IS NOT EXPRESSED IN THIS AGREEMENT.
Waiver of Subrogation
You waive any rights your insurance company may have to be reimbursed by Nestio or its representatives for money paid to you or on your behalf.
You acknowledge and agree that the terms of your Order Form, any other negotiations that we may enter into with you, any product feedback that you provide and any non-public product roadmaps or other information that we provide to you will be our confidential information. During and after the Term of this Agreement, you will not use (except for performance of this Agreement) or disclose any such confidential information to any party without our prior written consent and you will protect such information from public disclosure. You may, however, disclose any such confidential information only to those employees, advisors and agents of yours who have a need to know such information (and only to the extent necessary) in support of your business and who are bound by confidentiality and non-disclosure obligations at least as protective as those set forth herein.
In the case of any Services that are provided to you without charge, either party may terminate the Services at any time by notifying the other party by any means. We may take up to thirty (30) days to process your termination notice.
In the case of Services provided for charge, except as may be set forth otherwise in any Addendum hereto or in any Order Form, Nestio may terminate this Agreement for convenience, at any time and without penalty, by providing written mail or email notice your last provided physical address or email. You may not terminate prior to the expiration of the term of your paid for Services. As a reminder, any subscription services will automatically renew, unless you provide a written notice of termination to us at least thirty (30) days prior your subscription expiration date (see “Subscription Services”).
In all cases, Nestio may also terminate or suspend any and all Services immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any or no reason, including without limitation if Nestio has a good faith belief that you have (i) breached any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement; (ii)repeatedly or purposefully posted inaccurate or outdated User Information; or (iii) failed to honor appointments booked using the Services. Upon any termination, your right to use the Services and access Content will immediately cease. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason (i) all licenses granted to you hereunder shall automatically terminate and you will (i) remove any of the Services implemented on your properties, (ii) delete any Nestio Content and Nestio Marks from the same and from your possession and (iii), to the extent applicable, you will either return to Nestio, or destroy and remove from all computers, hard drives, networks, and other storage media, all copies of any materials licensed pursuant to this Agreement and any Nestio Confidential Information in your possession; and upon request you will promptly certify in writing to Nestio that such actions have been taken.
Following any termination of Services, you will remain liable for any obligations incurred or charges accrued prior to the termination. As stated earlier, you will not be permitted to re-activate any terminated Services account (or open a new account) if you or anyone under your control still has a delinquent prior Services account.
Upon termination, we may, but will not be obligated to continue to store any our User Content and other data relating to your account.
Dispute Resolution; Governing Law; Venue
You and Nestio agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Services, this Agreement and any Order Form or other agreement or understanding entered into between you and Nestio will be determined by binding arbitration (or, if we deem the amount to be small enough in small claims court, at our choosing). You agree that, by agreeing this Agreement, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Nestio are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your use of or membership to the Services.
To seek arbitration or to file a small claim court action against Nestio, you must first send to Nestio, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim, including a description of the basis for the claim and the relief being sought, to: General Counsel, Nestio, Inc., 150 West 22nd Street, New York, NY 10011. If we initiate arbitration, we will send a similar written notice to the email address used for your Services account. Following either party’s receipt of such a written notice, the parties agree to first use reasonable efforts to reach an amicable resolution to the claim. However, if the parties cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the notice is received, you or Nestio may commence an arbitration proceeding (or, at our discretion if we think the matter is small enough, file a claim in small claims court.)
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The arbitrator will be bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues will be for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless the parties agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in New York, NY.
Further, unless both parties agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
YOU AND NESTIO AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
YOU AND NESTIO FURTHER AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN SIX (6) MONTHS AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES OR THE APPLICABLE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS PERIOD. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL BE PERMANENTLY BARRED.
A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Any cause of action arising out of or related to the Services must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, excluding its conflicts of law rules, and the United States of America. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of this Agreement shall be finally settled by the state and federal courts located in the State of New York. Use of the Services is not authorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of this Agreement, including without limitation, this section.
Publicity. You may promote your receipt of the Services, including talking to traditional and online media and your users about your Services, so long as you do so truthfully and without implying that your Services are created or endorsed by Nestio, unless otherwise agreed in writing by Nestio. You may not issue any formal press release without Nestio’s prior written consent. Nestio reserves the right to make public statements and issue promotional materials regarding Your Services and/or the relationship formed by this Agreement without your consent.
Non-Disparagement. Neither Party shall make any statements, written or verbal, or cause or encourage others to make any statements, written or verbal, that defame, disparage or in any way criticize the personal or business reputation, practices, or conduct of the other party, its employees, directors, shareholders, clients, consultants and officers. The parties to this Agreement acknowledge and agree that this prohibition extends to statements, written or verbal, made to anyone, including but not limited to, the news media, investors, potential investors, any board of directors or advisory board or directors, industry analysts, competitors, strategic partners, vendors, employees (past and present), and clients
Relationship of the Parties. The Parties are, and will be deemed to be, independent contractors with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, and nothing contained in this Agreement and/or any Order Form will be deemed or construed in any manner whatsoever as creating any partnership, joint venture, employment, agency, fiduciary or other similar relationship between the you and Nestio that could result in the imposition of liability to any third party upon one party for any act or omission of the other.
Force Majeure. Nestio shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond Nestio’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation.
Assignment. You may not assign any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement without Nestio’s prior written consent. Nestio may assign its rights or obligations under this Agreement at any time. Any attempted assignment, transfer or delegation in contravention of this section shall be null and void. Any authorized assignment, delegation or transfer shall inure to the benefit of each party’s respective successor and assigns.
Attorneys’ Fees. If any proceeding is brought by either us or you to enforce or interpret any provision of this Agreement, the substantially prevailing party in such proceeding shall be entitled to recover, in addition to all other relief arising out of this Agreement, such party's reasonable attorneys' and other experts' fees and expenses.
No Third Party Beneficiaries. You and Nestio agree that there are no intended third party beneficiaries of this Agreement.
Notices. Any notice in writing required or permitted by this Agreement will be deemed given (i) when delivered by hand, (ii) on the next business day after being sent by a reputable overnight courier service for next business day delivery, or (iii) on the third business day after being sent by prepaid United States mail, return receipt requested, in each case to the applicable party at the address specified in the first paragraph of this Agreement.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, then such provision will be deemed to be restated to reflect as nearly as possible the original intentions of the Parties in a manner that complies with applicable law. The remainder of this Agreement, if capable of performance, will remain in full force and effect.
Entire Agreement and Amendments. This Agreement, together with any applicable Order Form (if applicable) constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, representations, agreements and understandings (oral or written) between the Parties with respect thereto. If there is a conflict between this Agreement and any governing Order the Order Form shall govern.
Waiver. No waiver of or with respect to any provision of this Agreement, nor consent by a Party to the breach of or departure from any provision of this Agreement, shall in any event be binding on or effective against such Party unless it be in writing and signed by such Party, and then such waiver shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which it is given.
Notice. Any notice that is required or permitted by this Agreement shall be in writing, in the English language and shall be emailed, if to Nestio, to email@example.com, or if to you, to the email or physical address last associated with your account. You may also deliver notices, to Nestio, Inc., 150 West 22nd Street, Floor 8, New York, NY 10011 Attn: Legal. You hereby consent to receiving any notices relevant to the Services or this Agreement by email without requiring a handwritten signature for such notice to be effective.

WEBSITE SERVICES ADDENDUM
Website Services typically include the development, deployment and continued hosting of a Nestio-powered website that will reside at a domain that you provide and be integrated with other elements of the Services (your “Nestio Site”). The Nestio Site will be created by Nestio, leveraging a Nestio website template that can be customized with your branding, as set forth herein and in your applicable Order Form. All additional elements relating to your Nestio Site structure and the development timeline and corresponding commitments needed from you will be set forth in your Order Form.
Nestio Charges. Website Services are billed on a recurring, subscription basis (see “Subscription Billing” herein) but may include additional upfront charges or other costs, depending upon your customization and implementation. The cost specifically applicable to your Website Services will be as set forth on your Order Form.
Site Hosting. Nestio may utilize a third-party provider to host your Nestio Site. We may manage your hosting directly with such provider or we may require that you create a direct account with the provider. In all cases, we will use reasonable efforts to select a high quality provider but you agree that we will not be responsible for hosting outages or failures of the third party provider
Site Operations. You will be responsible for maintaining your site domain and any other costs and expenses associated with managing and operating your Nestio Site.
Certain areas of the Nestio Site templates permit branding customization. For clarity, no other branding customization will be facilitated by Nestio. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that we include and require that you maintain certain Nestio co-branding (such as “Powered by Nestio”) on areas of the Nestio Site. You expressly agree not to interfere with or remove any such Nestio co-branding from your Nestio Site and you will comply with any guidelines that we may provide in that respect. You will procure your site domain and provide Nestio with necessary access tools. You will also provide any branding and related creative assets requested by Nestio, as need for Nestio to complete the site template(s). The foregoing will include but may not necessarily be limited elements of text/web copy, high resolution graphics/photos/designs, a logo, and other artwork and information. You agree to review work, provide feedback and approval in a timely and reasonable manner when requested and otherwise in accordance with any schedule(s) set out in the Order Form.
Guarantees, License and Limitations.
You hereby guarantee to Nestio that all elements of any text, trademarks, or other artwork and information that you provide to us or any of our partners for inclusion in the Nestio Site are either owned by you, or that you have a valid license and permission to allow us to use them and include them within the Nestio Site, as permitted hereunder. You hereby grant to Nestio a royalty-free, worldwide, unrestricted right to use such contents through the relationship of the contract for the purpose of providing the Services. Nestio hereby grants to you a license to access, use and display your Nestio Site and any related site template tools that we make available to you, solely through the relationship of the contract set forth on your Order Form, unless terminated earlier in accordance with this Agreement. You hereby acknowledge and agree that Nestio owns and will retain ownership to all code and any site copy that is not provided directly by you and the unique combination of these elements that constitutes a complete design of the the Nestio Site templates that we provide to you. You have no right to resell, license or otherwise transfer any aspect of a Nestio Site or Nestio Site template and understand that your right to access, use and display any of the same will end when your license is terminated as set forth above. Nestio makes no represenations, warranties or guarantees, of any kinds, that your Nestio Site and any functionality, including any elements of the Services contained therein will always be available or error-free and you agree that Nestio will not be liable to your or any third party for damages of any kind, including but not limited to lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising out of the operation of or inability to operate your Nestio Site or any element of it.
Post Termination; Ownership.
Following any termination of the Website Services, you understand that, except with respect to any of Your Marks, Nestio will retain ownership to all aspects of the Nestio Site design, UI and any content contained thereon and you will be prohibited from utilizing any of the same after the Term. Nestio will use reasonable efforts to maintain and store all core assets that it contributed to the Nestio Site for up to 180 days after contract termination, at which point all assets may be destroyed. You agree to store any of your own creative assets and/or any data that you may derive from your operation of the Nestio Site (solely as otherwise permitted in this Agreement) safely as Nestio is not required to keep or store any of the same.
API SERVICES ADDENDUM
These additional terms supplement the terms of the Agreement and specifically relate to your use of Nestio’s API, including but not limited to any XML data feed, any data transferred in JSON format via HTTP and any other data or information transferred via the API. All additional elements relating to your access to and use of the API will be set forth in your Order Form.
Nestio will assign you a unique key to access and employ the API (the “API Key”). The API Key enables you to access and use the API on a nonexclusive basis. All calls to the API made by Your Services must include the unique API Key. You must keep the API Key confidential. You are solely responsible for all uses of the API under the API Key. You will not employ scripting mechanisms or otherwise programmatically register and/or attempt to generate API Keys. In addition, you must provide accurate contact information as requested by Nestio in connection with Your Services and request for an API Key, and you agree to promptly notify Nestio in writing of any changes in such information.
Additional License to You
Subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement and the supplementary terms of this API Services Addendum, Nestio hereby grants to you during the Term, a revocable, limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, worldwide, royalty-free (subject to any agreed to fees) license to (i) access and use the API solely for the purposes of developing, testing, displaying, and distributing the Services for the Permitted Purpose to your customers; and (ii) use, reproduce, distribute, and transmit Nestio Content solely to the extent necessary to format, display and make it available to your customers through your site and services that are made available in the United States of America. If Nestio believes, in its sole discretion, that any provision of the Agreement has been violated by you, the licenses granted to you herein may be temporarily or permanently revoked, with or without notice.
In addition to all of the other restrictions and obligations set forth in this Agreement relative to the Services generally, you agree to comply with any instructions and guidelines provided to you by Nestio in conjunction with the API, as they may be updated from time to time.
Nestio will provide a tracking script that needs to be fired, providing Nestio's listing ID, each time the 'detail' view of a provided listing is viewed, both on any internal systems used by Company, and on any public facing webpages or applications where listings are displayed.
For any listings that are contacted through your system, you must provide Nestio a record of the Nestio listing ID via a JSON feed updated no less than daily for the contacted listing, the time of contact, and the type of contact. We may require additional reasonable cooperation from you to facilitate your use of our data via the API as contemplated herein.
If requested by Nestio, you must provide Nestio with valid (and updated) user logins to (i) all systems and products required to feed your User Data to the Nestio API, specifically for Nestio’s use of the same as part of the Services described herein, and (ii) any system or service which you will be pushing any Nestio Content to or using or storing any Nestio Content within.
If any affiliate or third party accesses or uses the API on your behalf (which you will not allow without our express permission), you are responsible for ensuring such third party complies with the provisions of the Agreement at all times while accessing or using the API or any Nestio Content.
Your fees for accessing the API will be as set forth in your Order Form.
Service Commitments; Disclaimers
Absent any exigent circumstances, we will deliver the API via the JSON feed within five (5) business days of the effective date set forth on your Order Form.
Nestio represents and warrants to you that it shall perform the API Services in a professional and workmanlike manner in accordance with generally recognized industry standards for similar services. EXCEPT FOR THE WARRANTY SET FORTH ABOVE, NESTIO MAKES NO WARRANTY WHATSOEVER WITH RESPECT TO THE API SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY (A) WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY; (B) WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; (C) WARRANTY OF TITLE; OR (D) WARRANTY AGAINST INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED BY LAW, COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OF TRADE OR OTHERWISE. ALL OF THE DISCLAIMERS OTHERWISE SET FORTH IN THE AGREEMENT RELATIVE TO NESTIO’S PROIVSION OF THE SERVICES GENERALLY SHALL ALSO APPLY TO THE API SERVICES.
You may submit inaccuracy reports by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and Nestio will respond within one (1) business day. Unless otherwise expressly agreed between the parties in writing, this Agreement does not entitle you to any support for the API. You are solely responsible for providing all support and technical assistance to end users of your sites, products and services. You acknowledge and agree that Nestio has no obligation to provide support or technical assistance to the users of your sites, products and services and you shall not represent to any such users that Nestio will provide such support. You agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to provide reasonable support to users of your own sites, products and services.
