iv. Use the Cloud Service APIs in a manner that exceeds reasonable request volume, exceeds transaction per second (“TPS”) throttling limits that are set based on the release cycle of your Application, constitutes excessive or abusive usage, or otherwise fails to comply or is inconsistent with any part of the API Documents located within CloudApi.intel.com, as determined by Intel in its sole discretion;
v. Copy, duplicate, develop, modify, reverse-engineer, de-compile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to extract any data or source code or make any other use of the Cloud Service APIs, related data or any part thereof, other than as expressly provided for in this TOU, whether by yourself or by means of any third party;
vi. Use any portion of the services or data provided to you through the Cloud Service APIs to (a) provide third parties with any of the data except in conjunction with an Application or (b) provide any of the data to third parties in bulk;
vii. Systematically query the Cloud Service APIs in a manner to obtain and cache all data for a given locality, region or country;
viii. Use the Cloud Service APIs if you are under legal age to enter into this TOU and have not obtained parental or guardian consent.
2.8 OAuth Authentication ("OAuth"). If your use of Cloud Service APIs will access Intel user information, or read or write information from or to Intel user accounts through Cloud Service APIs, you must use OAuth (http://oauth.net/2/) to authenticate your access to the Services. The terms of this Section 2.8 applies to your use of OAuth.
i. Intel takes end user security and privacy very seriously, and you agree to give us all necessary assistance for the operation of your Application in compliance with these TOU and any applicable laws.
ii. Securing User Consent. You are solely responsible for securing clear, express consent from the user, granting you permission to access such user’s Intel Identity Service account using OAuth-enabled APIs, including if applicable, retrieving user-specific information, or writing information to such user’s account. You will strictly comply with the scope of express consent they granted you when accessing such user’s Intel Identity Service account.
iii. Contact and Cooperation. You (or the name of the contact you gave to Intel when you applied for your API Key for review if it's not you) must be reachable at all times for security questions or concerns. You can change this name or contact by signing up for a new API Key, and providing the correct contact information and using the new API Key instead.
iv. Virus Precautions. All materials, including software and documents that you provide to Intel, must be checked with Internet industry standard up-to-date antivirus and anti-worm software, and determined to be virus-free and worm-free. Any data provided to Intel must not contain harmful scripts or code.
v. Industry Standards. Your networks, operating system and software of its web server(s), routers, databases, and computer systems (collectively, "System" or "Systems") must be properly configured to Internet industry standards, as required to securely operate your Application. If you do not completely control any aspect of the System, you will use all control or influence that you have over such Systems, and you will not architect or select Systems in a manner to avoid the foregoing obligation. An example of an unacceptable server is one that operates as open proxy. An example of architecting in an unacceptable manner would be if you select a server operated by a vendor with substandard security practices, so that you could contend that you do not control such server, in order to avoid having to select an acceptable server.
vi. Reporting. You must promptly report any security deficiencies in or intrusions to your Systems that you discover to Intel in writing via email to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. You will work with Intel to immediately correct any security deficiency, and will disconnect immediately any intrusions or intruder. In the event of any such security deficiency or intrusion, you will make no public statements (i.e. press, blogs, bulletin boards, etc.) without prior written and express permission from Intel in each instance.
vii. Access Control to Systems. To the extent you have control or influence over the Systems, you will log (in a time and date-stamped fashion) all instances of access to the Systems. You will encrypt the password and username files for the Systems that store or process any Service user data that you are permitted by Intel to access. Passwords must be unique, unintuitive, and changed often. You will minimize access to and use of the passwords. Wherever possible, commands that require additional privileges should be securely logged (with time and date) to enable a complete audit trail of activities. When an individual terminates his or her employment with you, his or her passwords and access password facilities must be terminated immediately.
viii. Security Reviews. Intel will have the right, at its own expense, to review, or to have an independent third party that is not your competitor, to inspect and review your compliance with these security provisions. You will (at your own expense) correct any security flaws detected by such a review as soon as possible. You will then promptly certify to Intel in writing that the security flaw has been corrected, along with a description of the corrective action(s) taken. Intel will give you 48 hours notice before conducting such a review, and may conduct no more than four reviews annually. Any such review will be conducted during regular business hours in such a manner as not to interfere with normal business activities. If a review reveals a material breach of any of these security provisions, you will reimburse Intel for the reasonable costs of the review.
2.9 Developer Representations and Warranties. You warrant, represent and undertake as follows:
i. Without Intel’s prior written consent, to not use the Cloud Service APIs or any part thereof, in connection with any internal business applications the purpose of which is directly related to the operation of your business and where the users of such application are your employees, officers, agents or contractors (e.g. fleet or asset management and tracking).

If Intel, in its reasonable belief, determines that any state or local sales, use or similar transaction tax may be due from Intel or You in connection with a Royalty Transaction, Intel will collect and remit those taxes to the competent tax authorities. To the extent that the incidence of any such tax on Royalty Transactions, or responsibility for collecting that tax, falls upon You, You authorize Intel to act on Your behalf in collecting and remitting that tax, but to the extent that Intel has not collected any such tax, or has not received reimbursement for that tax, from Commodity purchasers, You shall remain primarily liable for the tax, and You will reimburse Intel for any tax payments that Intel is required to make, but is not otherwise able to recover.
vi. Non-Royalty Transactions.
(a) Seller of Record; Legal Title. For all Non-Royalty Transactions, you will: (A) be the seller of record with respect to any Commodities sold via the Commerce Services; and (B) hold legal title to each Commodity purchased and created hereunder until title transfers to the customer. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, upon receipt of an order for a Commodity from your customer, you will generate the Commodity and supply it to the customer.
(b) Withholding Taxes on Non-Royalty Transactions and Related Payments. In the event that any payment to you of proceeds from a Non-Royalty Transaction is subject to any withholding or similar tax, the full amount of that withholding or similar tax shall be solely for your account. If Intel reasonably believes that such tax is due, Intel will deduct the full amount of such withholding or similar tax from the gross amount owed to you, and will pay the full amount due over to the competent tax authorities. Intel will apply a reduced rate of withholding tax, if any, provided for in any applicable income tax treaty only if you furnish Intel with such documentation required under that income tax treaty, or as requested by and satisfactory to Intel, sufficient to establish your entitlement to the benefit of that reduced rate of withholding tax. Intel will use commercially practical efforts to obtain, and to furnish to you, copies of official tax receipts or similar evidence of payment, confirming Intel’s payment of those withholding or similar taxes to the competent tax authorities. You will indemnify and hold Intel harmless against any and all claims by any competent tax authority for any underpayment of any such withholding or similar taxes and any penalties and/or interest thereon, including, but not limited to, underpayments attributable to any erroneous claim or representation by you as to your entitlement to the benefit of a reduced rate of withholding tax.
(c) Other Taxes on Non-Royalty Transaction Proceeds. You shall be responsible for any and all other applicable taxes related to your receipt of any proceeds from a Non-Royalty Transaction hereunder, including but not limited to any sales, use, goods and services, value added, or other taxes or comparable levies, transaction privilege taxes, gross receipts taxes, and withholding taxes not described above in Section 2.vi.(b) of this Article B and other charges such as duties, customs, tariffs, imposts, and government imposed surcharges. vii. Income Taxes. Each party is solely responsible for its own respective income taxes or taxes based upon gross revenues, including, but not limited to, franchise, business and occupation taxes, but specifically excluding all taxes addressed in paragraphs 2.v.(b), 2.vi.(b) and 2.vi.(c) of this Article B.
ix. Data Security. You are fully responsible for the security of data on your website or otherwise in your possession. You agree to comply with all applicable state and federal laws and rules in connection with your collection, security and dissemination of any personal, financial, Card, or transaction information (defined as "Data") on your website.
x. Card Network Rules. You are required to comply with all applicable Network Rules that are applicable to merchants. You can review portions of the Network rules at Visa and MasterCard. The Card Networks reserve the right to amend the Network Rules. Intel reserves the right to amend the Agreement at any time with notice to you as necessary to comply with Network Rules or otherwise address changes in the Commerce Services.
xi. Prohibited Businesses. By registering for a Service Account, you are confirming that you will not accept payments in connection with the following businesses, business activities or business practices: (1) offering substantial rebates or special incentives to the Cardholder subsequent to the original purchase, (2) engaging in deceptive marketing practices, (3) sharing Cardholder’s data with another merchant for payment of up-sell or cross-sell product or service, (4) evading Card Network’s chargeback monitoring programs, (5) engaging in any form of licensed or unlicensed aggregation or factoring, (6) age restricted products or services, (7) bidding fee auctions, (8) collection agencies, (9) chain letters, (10) check cashing, wire transfers or money orders, (11) counterfeit goods, (12) currency exchanges or dealers, (13) transactions with embassies, foreign consulates or other foreign governments, (14) firms selling business opportunities, investment opportunities, mortgage consulting, credit repair or protection or real estate purchases with no money down, (15) credit card and identity theft protection, (16) gambling, (17) sports forecasting or odds making, (18) illegal products or services, (19) money transmitters or money service businesses, (20) multi-level marketing or pyramid schemes, (21) quasi-cash or stored value, (22) securities brokers, (23) virtual currency that can be monetized, re-sold or converted to physical or digital goods or services or otherwise exit the virtual world, and (24) predatory products or services.
xii. Processing Card Transactions. You agree that Intel may honor all eligible Cards presented for payment by your customers for your Commodities in accordance with the Card Network rules, this Agreement and any operating guides that we may provide you from time to time. You acknowledge that the existence of an affirmative authorization from us or the Card Networks does not mean that a particular card transaction will not be subject to Chargeback, Reversal or Claim at a later date. You will display all Card Network marks in accordance with the rules and procedures of the Card Networks, and will use such marks only to indicate that you accept their cards for payment.
xiii. Payouts and Transaction History. We will pay out funds settling from the Card Networks to your designated PayPal account in the amounts actually received (less our Fees as defined below) for Card transactions submitted to our Commerce Services. You are responsible for the accuracy and correctness of information regarding your PayPal account. Funds for any given transaction will not be transferred to your PayPal account until the transaction is deemed complete. Transactions will be deemed complete when we have received funds settling from the Card Networks and when we or our processing financial institutions have accepted such funds. The actual timing of the transfers to your PayPal account of the settling funds will be subject to the Payout Schedule as defined below. Information regarding your Card transactions processed and settled via the Commerce Services ("Transaction History") will be available to you when you login to our website using your Service Account. We provide a minimum of one year of Transaction History on our website. Except as required by law, you are solely responsible for compiling and retaining permanent records of all Transactions and other data associated with your Service Account, your Transaction History and your use of the Commerce Services.
xiv. Payout Schedule. Payout schedule refers to the time it takes for Intel to initiate a transfer to your PayPal account of settlement funds arising from Transactions processed through the Commerce Services ("Payout Schedule"). Once your PayPal account information has been reviewed, Intel will initiate transfer of settlement funds (net Fees, chargebacks, and other funds owed to Intel for any reason) in accordance with the Payout Schedule, the terms of which will be made available to you when you login to our website using your Service Account. The settlement funds should normally be credited to your PayPal account within 1-2 days of us initiating the payout. We are not responsible for any action taken by PayPal that may result in some or all of the funds not being credited or made available to you in your PayPal account. Intel reserves the right to change the Payout Schedule or suspend payouts to your PayPal account should we determine it is necessary due to pending disputes, excessive or anticipated excessive Chargebacks or refunds, or other suspicious activity associated with your use of the Commerce Services or if required by law or court order.
xv. Reconciliations and Errors. Your Transaction History will be available to you when you login to our website using your Service Account. Except as required by law, you are solely responsible for reconciling your Transaction History with your own Transaction records. You agree to notify us of any discrepancies arising from such reconciliation and verification. We will investigate any reported discrepancies and attempt to rectify any errors that you or we discover. In the event you are owed money as a result of the discrepancy, we will transfer funds to your PayPal account in the next scheduled payout. Your failure to notify us of a error or discrepancy in your Transaction History within sixty (60) days of when it first appears on your Transaction History will be deemed a waiver of any right to amounts owed to you in connection with any such error or discrepancy in processing your card payments. If you submit or cause us to process Transactions erroneously, you agree to contact us immediately. We will investigate any reported errors and attempt to rectify any errors that you or we discover by crediting or debiting your PayPal account as appropriate. Intel will only correct Transactions that you process incorrectly if and when you notify us of such an error. Your failure to notify us of a processing error within thirty (30) days of when it first appears on your electronic transaction history will be deemed a waiver of any right to amounts owed to you.
xvi. Refunds and Returns. You agree to submit any and all refunds and adjustments for returns of your Commodities through the Commerce Services to the applicable cardholder Cards in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and Network Rules. Network Rules require that you will (a) maintain a fair return, cancellation or adjustment policy; (b) disclose your return or cancellation policy to customers at the time of purchase, (c) not give cash refunds to a customer in connection with a Card sale, unless required by law, and (d) not accept cash or any other item of value for preparing a Card sale refund. Full refunds must be for the exact dollar amount of the original transaction including tax, handling charges, and other. The refund amount may not exceed the original sale amount. Refunds processed though the Commerce Services must be submitted within sixty (60) days of the original transaction but in all cases, within three (3) days of approving the Cardholder refund. For processed refunds, Intel will deduct the refund amount (including any applicable Fees) from settlement funds owed to you from processing of other Card transactions. If these funds are not sufficient, you authorize Intel to initiate a debit to your PayPal account in the amount necessary to complete the refund transaction to the Cardholder’s card. In the event Intel cannot access your PayPal account by means of ACH debit entry, you agree to pay all funds owed to Intel upon demand. You are solely responsible for accepting and processing returns of your Commodities; Intel has no responsibility or obligation for processing such returns.
xvii. Chargebacks. A Chargeback is typically caused when a customer disputes a charge that appears on their bill. A Chargeback may result in the reversal of a Transaction, with the amount charged back to you. You can be assessed Chargebacks for: (a) customer disputes, or (b) unauthorized or improperly authorized transactions, or (c) transactions that do not comply with Network Rules or the terms of this Agreement or are allegedly unlawful or suspicious, or (d) any reversals for any reason by the Card Network, our processor or acquiring bank, or the Cardholder bank.
When a Chargeback is issued, you are immediately liable to Intel for the full amount of payment of the Chargeback plus any associated Fees, fines, expenses or penalties (including those assessed by the Card Networks or our payment processors). You agree that Intel may recover these amounts by debiting your PayPal account associated with your Service Account or setting off any amounts owed to you by Intel. If Intel is unable to recover funds related to a Chargeback for which you are liable, you will pay Intel the full amount of the Chargeback immediately upon demand. You agree to pay all costs and expenses, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and other legal expenses, incurred by or on behalf of Intel in connection with the collection of any unpaid Chargebacks unpaid by you.
Further, if Intel reasonably believes that a Chargeback is likely with respect to any Transaction, Intel may withhold the amount of the potential Chargeback from payments otherwise due to you under this Agreement until such time that: (A) a Chargeback is assessed due to a customer’s complaint, in which case we will retain the funds; (B) the period of time under applicable law or regulation by which the customer may dispute that the transaction has expired; or (C) we determine that a Chargeback on the transaction will not occur.
xviii. Contesting Your Chargebacks. You or Intel may elect to contest Chargebacks assessed to your account. Intel may provide you with assistance including notifications and software to help contest your Chargebacks. Intel does not assume any liability for its role or assistance in contesting Chargebacks.
You agree to provide Intel with the necessary information, in a timely manner and at your expense, to investigate or help resolve any Chargeback. You also grant Intel permission to share records or other information required with the cardholder, the cardholder’s financial institution, and your financial institution to help resolve any disputes. You acknowledge that your failure to provide Intel with complete and accurate information in a timely manner may result in an irreversible Chargeback being assessed.
If the cardholder’s issuing bank or the Card Network does not resolve a dispute in your favor, Intel may recover the Chargeback amount and any associated fees from you as described in this Agreement. Intel reserves the right, upon notice to you, to charge a fee for mediating or investigating Chargeback disputes.
xix. Excessive Chargebacks. At any point, Intel, the Card Networks, or our payment processor(s) may determine that you are incurring excessive Chargebacks. Excessive Chargebacks may result in additional fees, penalties, or fines. Excessive Chargebacks may also result in additional controls and restrictions to your use of the Commerce Services, including without limitation, (a) increases to your applicable Fees, (b) delays in your Payout Schedule, or (c) possible suspension or termination of your Service Account and the Commerce Services. The Card Networks may also place additional controls or restrictions as part of their own monitoring programs for merchants with excessive Chargebacks.
xx. Collection Rights. To the extent permitted by law, Intel may collect any obligations you owe under this Agreement by deducting the corresponding amounts from the funds payable to you arising from the settlement of Card transactions. Fees will be assessed at the time a Transaction is processed and will be first deducted from the funds received for such Transactions. If the settlement amounts are not sufficient to meet your obligations hereunder, Intel may charge or debit the PayPal account or credit card registered in your Service Account for any amounts owed. Your failure to fully pay amounts that you owe on demand will be a breach of this Agreement. You will be liable for Intel’s costs associated with collection in addition to the amount owed, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and expenses, costs of any arbitration or court proceeding, collection agency fees, and any applicable interest. Additionally, Intel may require a personal guaranty from a principal of a business for funds owed under this Agreement.
xxi. Termination of Commerce Services. Intel may suspend your Service Account and your access to the Commerce Services, or terminate this Agreement, if (a) Intel determines in its sole discretion that you are ineligible for the Commerce Services because of the risk associated with your Service Account, including without limitation significant credit or fraud risk, or for any other reason; or (b) you do not comply with any of the provisions of this Agreement, (c) upon request of a Card Network or a Card issuer.
xxii. Effect of Termination. Upon termination and closing of your Service Account, Intel will immediately discontinue your access to the Commerce Services. You agree to complete all pending transactions, immediately remove all logos for Cards, and stop accepting new transactions through the Commerce Services. You will not be refunded the remainder of any fees that you have paid for the Commerce Services if your access to or use of the Service is terminated or suspended. Any funds in Intel’s custody will be paid out to you subject to the terms of your Payout Schedule.
Termination does not relieve you of your obligations as defined in this Agreement, and Intel may elect to continue to hold any funds deemed necessary pending resolution of any other terms or obligations defined in this Agreement, including but not limited to Chargebacks, Fees, Refunds, or other investigations or proceedings.
Upon termination you agree: (a) to immediately cease your use of the Commerce Services (b) discontinue use of any Intel trademarks and to immediately remove any Intel references and logos from your Application, (c) that the license granted under this Agreement shall end, (d) that Intel reserves the right (but has no obligation) to delete all of your information and account data stored on its servers, and (e) Intel will not be liable to you for compensation, reimbursement, or damages in connection with your use of the Commerce Services, or any termination or suspension of the Commerce Services or deletion of your information or account data.
xxiii. Your Liability. You are responsible for all Reversals, Chargebacks, Claims, fines, fees, penalties and other liability arising out of or relating to your breach of this Agreement, and/or your use of the Commerce Services. You agree to reimburse your customer, Intel and any third party designated by Intel for any and all such liability.
Intel will have the final decision-making authority with respect to Claims, including without limitation claims for refunds for purchased items that are filed with Intel by you or your customers. You will be required to reimburse Intel for your liability. Your liability will include the full purchase price of the item (and in some cases you may not receive the item back). You will not receive a refund of any fees paid to Intel.
Without limiting the foregoing, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Intel and its respective employees and agents (collectively "Disclaiming Entities") from and against any claim, suit, demand, loss, liability, damage, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to (i) your breach of any provision of this Agreement, and/or (ii) your use of the Commerce Services, including without limitation any Reversals, Chargebacks, Claims, fines, fees, penalties and attorneys’ fees; (iii) your, or your employee’s or agent’s, negligence or willful misconduct; or (iv) third party indemnity obligations we incur as a direct or indirect result of your acts or omissions (including indemnification of any Card Network or Card issuer).
