1. Acceptance and Set-Up
API Terms. Thank you for using the Lexer Application Programming Interfaces (the Lexer APIs).

These include Lexer’s Acceptable Use Policy, Data Processing Addendum, or any Master Services Agreement Lexer (We, Us) may have directly with you (if applicable) or the company or legal entity that you represent. You must also abide by any and all guidelines or other documentation provided by Lexer for use in connection with the Lexer APIs that We may provide you in writing (the API Documentation).
Power to bind a company. If you are accepting these API Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the legal authority to bind that entity to these API Terms, you are accepting these API Terms on behalf of that entity, and all references to “you” in these API Terms refer to that entity.
Consequences of using APIs. Please read these API Terms carefully. If you do not agree with any part of these API Terms, you must not use Lexer APIs.
Prohibitions on accepting API Terms. You may not use the APIs and may not accept the Terms if:
You are not of legal age to form a binding contract with us; or
You are a person barred from using or receiving the APIs under the applicable laws of Australia, the United States or other countries including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the APIs.
Updates to API Terms. We may update these API Terms from time to time by posting an updated version to Our website and any such updates will be effective upon posting. Your continued use of the Lexer APIs constitutes your acceptance of the modified API Terms. We encourage you to review these API Terms regularly.

Appropriate security. You agree to implement and maintain appropriate technical and organisational security measures designed to protect all Content and data, including PII, from unauthorised access, use loss, destruction, damage, alteration, or disclosure in the same manner that you would protect your own confidential and proprietary information but in no event using less than a reasonable degree of care. You agree to notify both us and your users of any unauthorised access or use of such information to the extent required under applicable law. In the event of a security deficiency or incident, outage, or any other event that may impact or compromise the Lexer APIs, or Lexer Services, you agree to work with us immediately to assess and remedy the situation. You also agree to coordinate with us on any public statements before publication.

financial information of end customers (such as credit or debit card numbers, any related security codes or passwords, and bank account numbers);
information related to an individual’s physical or mental health; and
information related to the provision or payment of health care.
Audit right. We reserve the right to audit, or to appoint an independent auditor under appropriate non-disclosure conditions to audit your Integration, systems and records to confirm your compliance with these API Terms. If requested, you must provide us with proof that your Integration complies with these API Terms.
5. Liability and Indemnity
Disclaimer of Any Warranty. Lexer does not represent or warrant that any Lexer APIs are free of inaccuracies, errors, bugs or interruptions, or are reliable, accurate, complete or otherwise valid. THE LEXER APIs ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITH NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND AND WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AVAILABILITY, SECURITY, TITLE AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE LEXER APIs WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE. YOUR USE OF THE LEXER APIs IS AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK, AND YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT RESULTS FROM THE USE OF ANY Lexer APIs INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR LOSS OF DATA.
Limitation of Liability. WE SHALL NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH USE OF THE LEXER APIs, WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE), OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS, WHETHER OR NOT WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE LEXER API TERMS (WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY) EXCEED $100. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
Release and Waiver. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby release and waive all claims against Us, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, licensors, co-branders or other partners, and employees from any and all liability for claims, damages (actual and/or consequential), costs and expenses (including litigation costs and attorneys' fees) of every kind and nature, arising from or in any way related to your use of the Lexer APIs, the Content. If you are a California resident, you waive your rights under California Civil Code 1542, which states, "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor." You understand that any fact relating to any matter covered by this release may be found to be other than now believed to be true and you accept and assume the risk of such possible differences in fact. In addition, you expressly waive and relinquish any and all rights and benefits that you may have under any other state or federal statute or common law principle of similar effect, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Indemnification. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to indemnify and hold Us harmless and Our subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, licensors, co-branders or other partners, and employees from any and all third party claims arising from or in any way related to your use of the Lexer APIs, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages, liabilities, costs and fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees) of every kind and nature. Notwithstanding anything contained in the preceding sentence, (a) we will always be free to choose our own counsel if we pay for the cost of such counsel; and (b) no settlement may be entered into by you, without our express written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld), if: (i) the third party asserting the claim is a government agency, (ii) the settlement arguably involves the making of admissions, (iii) the settlement does not include a full release of liability, or (iv) the settlement includes terms other than a full release of liability and the payment of money.
Remedies. You acknowledge that your breach of these API terms may cause irreparable harm to Lexer, the extent of which would be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, you agree that, in addition to any other remedies to which Lexer may be legally entitled, Lexer shall have the right to seek immediate injunctive relief in the event of a breach of these API terms by you or any of your officers, employees, consultants or other agents.
6. General Terms

You grant us the right to use your company name and logo as a reference for marketing the Integration or Your use of the Lexer APIs in Your Application on our website and in other public or private communications with our existing or potential developers and customers, subject to your standard trademark usage guidelines as provided to us from time-to-time.
Relationship of the Parties. You and Lexer are independent contractors and these API Terms do not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary, or employment relationship between You and Us. You do not have any authority to assume or create any obligation for or on Our behalf, express or implied, or the right to enter into any contract on Our behalf.
Severability. If any provision of these API Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties agree that the court should give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision and that the other provisions remain in full force and effect.
