Last modified: March 8, 2012

In order to use the OCR-IT API (the “API”), access the information contained on the OCR-IT website (the “Website”) or make use of the services provided by OCR-IT (collectively the “Service” or “Services”), you (hereinafter referred to as “You”) must first read and accept this agreement, OCR-IT’s Legal, and OCR-IT’s Privacy Policy (collectively the “Agreement”).  You may not avail Yourself of the Services if You do not accept this Agreement and its terms. You accept the terms of the Agreement by clicking to accept, by agreeing to the terms of the Agreement in the user interface for any OCR-IT Service, or by using the Services. In the latter case, You understand and agree that we will treat Your use of the Services as acceptance of the terms from that point onwards.

These terms and conditions will remain in effect throughout Your use of the Services. These terms and conditions are legally binding should You choose to use the Services. You may not use the Services and may not accept the terms if (a) You are not of legal age to form a binding contract with us, or (b) You are a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of the United States or other countries including the country in which You are resident or from which You use the Services.

The terms and conditions set forth herein may be amended in our sole and absolute discretion from time to time.  Such amended terms and conditions shall be dated and effective immediately upon posting to the Website. Your continued use of the Service after such posting will constitute acceptance by You of such amendments. We will attempt to communicate via e-mail newsletter about any changes, but it is Your responsibility to review these Terms of Service frequently and remain informed about any changes to them, so we encourage You to visit this page often.

1. Grant of Rights to Use Services

1.1 Subject to Your acceptance of and compliance with this Agreement and after payment for the Services, OCR-IT hereby grants You a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable, revocable right to access and use the Services in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and under additional optional Agreement Extensions that have been completed in writing and which become part of this Agreement. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features provided by OCR-IT that augment or enhance the current Services shall also constitute “Services” and shall be subject to these terms and conditions. You may not, nor allow any third party to, copy, distribute, sell, disclose, lend, transfer, convey, modify, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer the Services for any purpose. You may not allow any unauthorized third party to access the Services for any purpose. All rights not expressly granted under this Agreement are retained by OCR-IT.

1.2 You may write software or website (an “Application”) that interfaces with the Services. You acknowledge that we may change, deprecate or republish any Service or feature of a Service from time to time, and that it is Your responsibility to ensure that interfaces or requests You make to or via our Service are compatible with then-current Service. OCR-IT will attempt to a) preserve current Service structure wherever possible, and b) inform You of any changes with reasonable notice of not less than 30 days so You can adjust Your Application, but we are under no obligation to do so.

1.3 You and any Applications that You may build, distribute, or otherwise create may use the Services at any time that the Services are available provided that those requests do not violate the terms of this Agreement.

1.4 You may not remove, obscure, or alter any notice of any OCR-IT trademark, service mark or other intellectual property or proprietary right appearing on the Website or contained within the Services.

1.5 You are solely responsible for Your Applications, including any data, text, images or content contained therein.

1.6 You are personally responsible for all traffic originating from Your Applications using Your account credentials to the Services. As such, You should protect Your authentication IDs and security credentials. Actions taken using Your credentials shall be deemed to be actions taken by You, with all consequences including service termination, civil and criminal penalties.

1.7 We may make available to You, for Your use in connection with the Services a variety of software, code samples, data and other content, printed and electronic documentation (the “OCR-IT Properties”). Subject to Your acceptance of this Agreement, OCR-IT hereby grants to You a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license under this Agreement to install, copy and use the OCR-IT Properties solely in connection with and as necessary for Your use of Services.

(a) The OCR-IT Properties may include, without limitation:  Website, APIs, specifications, articles, documentation and code samples (the “Documentation”) describing the operational and functional capabilities, use limitations, technical and engineering requirements, and testing and performance criteria relevant to the proper use of a Service.

(b) OCR-IT may make available under another license agreement, such as an open source agreement or copyright belonging to a different entity, additional content or software. Any such content or software will be clearly marked with such a license or copyright information indicating the usage rights available for that content or software.

(c) Except as may be expressly authorized under this Agreement:

You may not, and may not attempt to, modify, alter, tamper with, repair, or otherwise create derivative works of any software included in the OCR-IT Properties.

You may not, and may not attempt to, reverse engineer, disassemble, or decompile the OCR-IT Properties or the Services or apply any other process or procedure to derive the source code of any software included in the OCR-IT Properties.

1.8 For purposes of this Agreement, OCR-IT hereby grants to You a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licenseable, revocable license during the Term of this Agreement to display the trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names of OCR-IT (each, a “OCR-IT Mark”) for the purpose of promoting or advertising that You use the Services. In return You hereby grant OCR-IT a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable license during the Term of this Agreement to display Your trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names and the like for the purpose of promoting or advertising that You use the Services. In using OCR-IT Marks, You may not: (i) display a OCR-IT Mark in any manner that implies a relationship or affiliation with, sponsorship, or endorsement by OCR-IT; (ii) use OCR-IT’s Marks to disparage OCR-IT or its products or services; or (iii) display a OCR-IT Mark on a site that violates any law or regulation. Notwithstanding the above, OCR-IT may determine in its sole discretion whether its marks may be used in connection with Your Application. Furthermore, we may modify any OCR-IT Marks provided to You at any time, and upon notice, You will use only the modified OCR-IT Marks and not the old OCR-IT Marks. Other than as specified in this Agreement, You may not use any OCR-IT Mark unless You obtain our prior written consent. All uses of the OCR-IT Trademarks and goodwill associated therewith shall inure to the benefit of OCR-IT.

1.9 The rights granted by us in this Agreement with respect to the OCR-IT Properties, the OCR-IT Marks and the Services are nonexclusive, and we reserve the right to: (i) act as a developer of Applications based on the OCR-IT Properties or via use of the Services; and (ii) work with third parties as developers or systems integrators who may offer products or services which may compete with Your Application.

1.10 Subject to our commercially reasonable efforts and so long as Your account remains in good standing, data generated by Your use of the Service such as processing results will remain available via our Services for at least twenty four hours (1 day) from the time such data was generated.  You may use available API to permanently remove the data on demand, which in turn voids this data availability period for specific requests that have been removed via such API.  Notwithstanding the above and without limitation to Section 7, we shall have no liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that You may incur with respect to loss of data associated with Your account and data therein.

1.11 You may not sub-license, re-brand, OEM, resell or re-purpose any Services or functionality contained within Services without an express written agreement from OCR-IT.

Your right to take advantage of any such assistance, whether generally made available with respect to the Services or made available uniquely to You, shall be conditioned upon Your acceptance of and compliance with any fees and terms we specify for such assistance.

3. Availability, Downtime and Service Suspensions; Security

3.1 OCR-IT historically has a proven track record of 99.95% availability and uptime of its Services.  OCR-IT understands the importance that our Service plays in our client’s daily business operations. We consider the Service we provide to each customer as a critical component of their success and are committed to reliably delivering our Service.  OCR-IT shall maintain at least one complete instance of entirely redundant hardware and software installation for failover in case of downtime in primary Services availability, and with accordance of commercial feasibility.  OCR-IT will provide best attempts to automatically route, direct and redirect requests between Services areas, software and hardware to achieve maximum availability and responsiveness.

3.2 You acknowledge that in rare cases: (i) Your access to and use of the Services may be suspended for the duration of any unanticipated or unscheduled downtime or unavailability of any portion or all of the Services for any reason, including as a result of power outages, system failures or other interruptions; and (ii) we shall also be entitled, without any liability to You, to suspend access to any portion or all of the Services at any time, on a Service-wide basis: (a) for scheduled downtime to permit us to conduct maintenance or make modifications to any Service; (b) in the event of a denial of service attack or other attack on the Service or other event that we determine, in our sole discretion, may create a risk to the applicable Service, to You or to any of our other customers if the Service were not suspended; or (c) in the event that we determine that any Service is prohibited by applicable law or we otherwise determine that it is necessary or prudent to do so for legal or regulatory reasons (collectively, “Service Suspensions”). Without limitation to Section 7, we shall have no liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that You may incur as a result of any Service Suspension. To the extent we are able, we will endeavor to provide You notice of any Service Suspension in accordance with the notice provisions set forth in Section 10 below and to post updates regarding resumption of Services following any such suspension, but shall have no liability for the manner in which we may do so or if we fail to do so.

3.3 We strive to keep information You provide to us secure, but cannot guarantee that we will be successful at doing so. Accordingly, without limitation to Section 7 below, You acknowledge that You bear sole responsibility for adequate security, protection and backup of Your content.  For all confidential information, we provide and strongly encourage to use secure connections and available API to remove data on-demand upon completion of individual Service requests. We will have no liability to You for any unauthorized access or use, corruption, deletion, destruction or loss of any of Your content.

4. Bonus Units

4.1 We may award credits, points, free Service requests, or any of our other virtual currencies (each individually or collectively referred to as “Promotional Credits”) in connection with promotions or other giveaways.  Promotional Credits may also be provided to developer needing higher volume of units for testing purposes, upon request and at a sole determination of OCR-IT.  Acquisition of Promotional Credits provides only a limited, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use such Promotional Credits to access Services that we expressly make available for use with the Promotional Credits. Promotional Credits have no monetary value and do not constitute currency or property of any type.

If any deduction or withholding is required by applicable law, You shall notify us and shall pay such additional amounts as necessary to ensure that the net amount that we receive, after such deduction and withholding, equals the amount we would have received if no such deduction or withholding had been required. Additionally, You shall provide us with documentation that the withholding and deducted amounts have been paid to the relevant taxing authority.
