YOU SHALL use instructions provided in the Bitext API to place application identification information (the API credentials set) into any application or service you develop that incorporates or makes any use of the Bitext API. You may only create a single API credentials set per application or service and such API credentials set must accompany all web services requests coming from that application or service.

e. YOU SHALL NOT:
(i) use the Bitext API for any commercial purpose or in any product or service that competes with products or services offered by BITEXT. For more details on what we consider to be competing commercial purposes, see our company pages.
(iii) sell, lease, share, transfer, or sublicense the Bitext API or access or access codes thereto or derive income from the use or provision of the Bitext API, whether for direct commercial or monetary gain or otherwise, without BITEXT’s prior, express, written permission;
(iv) use the Bitext API in a manner that exceeds reasonable request volume, constitutes excessive or abusive usage, or otherwise fails to comply or is inconsistent with any part of the BITEXT API documentation located within the API page on this web site, as determined by BITEXT in its sole discretion; or
(v) use the Bitext API in connection with or to promote any products, services, or materials that constitute, promote or are used primarily for the purpose of dealing in: spyware, adware, or other malicious programs or code, hate materials (e.g. Nazi memorabilia) or materials urging acts of terrorism or violence, hacking/surveillance/interception/ descrambling equipment, gambling items or non-transferable items such as airline tickets or event tickets.
f. Additional Security terms.
(i) BITEXT 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 BITEXT account using authentication API, 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 BITEXT account.
(iii) Contact and Cooperation. You (or the name of the contact You gave to BITEXT when You applied for Your API credential set 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 credential set, and providing the correct contact information and using the new API credential set instead.
(iv) Virus Precautions. All materials, including software and documents, that You provide to BITEXT, 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 BITEXT 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 must be properly configured to Internet industry best practice 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/or selection of 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 BITEXT in writing via our contact page. You will work with BITEXT 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 BITEXT in each instance.
(vii) Control Access 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 BITEXT user data that You are permitted by BITEXT to access. Passwords must be unique, unintuitive, and changed often. You will minimize access to and use of the passwords. Wherever possible, commands which 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. BITEXT will have the right, at its own expense, to review, or to have an independent third party 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 BITEXT in writing that the security flaw has been corrected, along with a description of the corrective action(s) taken. 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 BITEXT for the reasonable costs of the review.
