Terms of Service
Thank you for using Stipop Sticker API, other developer services, and associated software (collectively, "API"). By accessing or using our API, you are agreeing to the terms below. This Stipop API Terms of Service(the "Term") is made and entered into between Stipop Inc. and the entity or person agreeing to these terms ("Customer"). If you are accepting on behalf of Customer, you represent and warrant that: (a) you have the full legal authority to bind Customer to this Term; (b) you have read and understood this Term; and (c) you agree, on behalf of Customer, to this Term. If you do not have the legal authority to bind Customer, please do not click to accept. This Term governs Customer's access to and use of the Services. Under the Terms, "Stipop" means Stipop Inc., with offices at Fl.1, 3340 Ocean Park Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA 90405, United States, unless set forth otherwise in additional terms applicable for a given API.
1. Provision of the Services
1.1 Use of the Services in Customer Applications
Stipop will provide the Services to Customer in accordance with the Term, and Customer may use the Services in Customer Application(s) in accordance with Section 3 (License).
1.2 Dashboard; Projects; API Keys
Customer will administer the Services through the online Dashboard. To access the Services, Customer must create Project(s) and use its API key(s) in accordance with the Documentation.
Customer must have an Account. Customer is responsible for: (a) the information it provides in connection with the Account; (b) maintaining the confidentiality and security of the Account and associated passwords; and (c) any use of its Account.
1.4 Customer Domains and Applications
Customer must list in the Dashboard each authorized domain and application that uses the Services. Customer is responsible for ensuring that only authorized domains and applications use the Services.
1.5 New Features and Services
Stipop may: (a) make new features or functionality available through the Services and (b) add new services to the "Services" definition. Customer’s use of new features or functionality may be contingent on Customer’s agreement to additional terms applicable to the new feature or functionality.
2. Payment Terms
2.1 Free Trial
Certain Services are provided to Customer without charge up to the MAU(Monthly Active User) Threshold, as applicable.
2.2 Online Billing
At the end of the applicable MAU Accrual Period, Stipop will issue an electronic bill to Customer for all charges accrued above the MAU Threshold based on Customer’s use of the Services during the previous MAU Accrual Period. For use above the MAU Threshold, Customer will be responsible for all Fees up to the amount set in the Account and will pay all Fees in the currency set forth in the invoice. If Customer elects to pay by credit card, debit card, or other non-invoiced form of payment, Stipop will charge (and Customer will pay) all Fees immediately at the end of the MAU Accrual Period. If Customer elects to pay by invoice (and Stipop agrees), all Fees are due as stated in the invoice. Customer’s obligation to pay all Fees is non-cancellable. Stipop's measurement of Customer’s use of the Services is final. Stipop has no obligation to provide multiple bills.
2.3.1 Customer is responsible for any Taxes, and Customer will pay Stipop for the Services without any reduction for Taxes. If Stipop is obligated to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be invoiced to Customer, unless Customer provides Stipop with a timely and valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. In some states the sales tax is due on the total purchase price at the time of sale and must be invoiced and collected at the time of the sale. If Customer is required by law to withhold any Taxes from its payments to Stipop, Customer must provide Stipop with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such withholding. If under the applicable tax legislation the Services are subject to local VAT and the Customer is required to make a withholding of local VAT from amounts payable to Stipop, the value of Services calculated in accordance with the above procedure will be increased (grossed up) by Customer for the respective amount of local VAT and the grossed up amount will be regarded as a VAT inclusive price. Local VAT amount withheld from the VAT-inclusive price will be remitted to the applicable local tax entity by the Customer and Customer will ensure that Stipop will receive payment for its services for the net amount as would otherwise be due (the VAT inclusive price less the local VAT withheld and remitted to applicable tax authority).
2.3.2 If required under applicable law, Customer will provide Stipop with applicable tax identification information that Stipop may require to ensure its compliance with applicable tax regulations and authorities in applicable jurisdictions. Customer will be liable to pay (or reimburse Stipop for) any taxes, interest, penalties or fines arising out of any mis-declaration by the Customer.
2.4 Invoice Disputes & Refunds
Any invoice disputes must be submitted before the payment due date. If Stipop determines that Fees were incorrectly invoiced, then Stipop will issue a credit equal to the agreed amount. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Customer waives all claims relating to Fees unless claimed within 60 days after charged (this does not affect any Customer rights with its credit card issuer). Nothing in the Term obligates Stipop to extend credit to any party.
2.5 Delinquent Payments; Suspension
If Customer’s payment is overdue, then Stipop may (a) charge interest on overdue amounts at 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less) from the Payment Due Date until paid in full, and (b) Suspend the Services or terminate the Term. Customer will reimburse Stipop for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Stipop in collecting overdue payments except where such payments are due to Stipop’s billing inaccuracies.
2.6 No Purchase Order Number Required
Stipop is not required to provide a purchase order number on Stipop’s invoice (or otherwise).
