Thank you for your interest in the Resilio Sync™ API. "API" means the Resilio Sync™ API, accompanying documentation, sample code and related materials, including any updates that we may provide to you from time to time. The API is designed to provide developers with software and reference information that allow independent third party developers to develop apps that include technologies, including reference programs and programming interface information to link into and extend the features of Resilio Sync (“API Information”) in your applications (an "Application"). The evaluation version of the API (“Evaluation API”) may be used by licensee only for internal evaluation purposes, as set forth herein, and may not be distributed. The API and Resilio Sync sometimes referred to as the "Service".
- Use of the API is Subject to these Terms. Your use of the API is subject to the terms of a legal agreement between you and Resilio, Inc. (“Resilio”), whose principal place of business is at 303 Second Street, Suite S600, San Francisco, California 94107, United States. This legal agreement is referred to as the "Terms".

(i) the terms and conditions set forth in this document; and
(a) Before you use the API, you should read each of the documents comprising the Terms, and print or save a local copy for your records.
Resilio reserves the right to make changes to the Terms from time to time. When these changes are made, Resilio will make a new copy of the Terms available at https://getsync.com/legal/terms-sync-api . You understand and agree that if you use the API or the Service after the date on which the Terms have changed, Resilio will treat your use as acceptance of the updated Terms. If a modification is unacceptable to you, you may terminate the agreement by ceasing use of the API.
- Your Resilio Account. In order to access the Service, you must have a Sync API Account. You agree that any information you give to Resilio in connection with your Sync API Account or your continued use of the Service will always be accurate, correct and up to date. After supplying Resilio with your account information and the information requested, and accepting the Terms, you will be issued an alphanumeric key assigned to you by Resilio that is uniquely associated with your Sync API Account. Your Application must import the API using this key as described in the Sync API Documentation, and Resilio will block requests with an invalid key or invalid URL. You may only obtain and use a key in accordance with these Terms and the Sync API Documentation. You agree that you will be solely responsible to Resilio for your use of the Service. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password, your account, or your key, you agree to notify Resilio immediately.
- Resilio's Proprietary Rights. You acknowledge and agree that Resilio (or Resilio's licensors and their suppliers, as applicable) owns all legal right, title and interest in and to the Service and API Information, including any intellectual property rights that subsist in the Service or Sync API Information (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist).

13.1 The license granted in this Agreement will remain in effect, unless terminated earlier as set forth in this Agreement. You may stop using the Service at any time. You may terminate this Agreement for convenience at any time on prior written notice. Resilio may terminate this Agreement for its convenience at any time without liability to you.

You shall comply with all applicable international and national laws that apply to the Software as well as end-user, end-use, destination restrictions issued by national governments or similar bodies, and restrictions on embargoed nations. In the US the Internet Communications Software is controlled under ECCN 5D992 of the Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”) under Encryption Registration Number (“ERN”) R111961 and thus may not be exported or re exported from the US to or downloaded by any person in any countries controlled for anti terrorism reasons under the EAR, which include Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Syria and Sudan. Moreover, the Internet Communications Software may not be exported or re exported from the US to or downloaded by any person or entity subject to US sanctions regardless of location. See http://www.bis.doc.gov/index.php/policy-guidance/lists-of-parties-of-concern and EAR Part 736. Resilio is making the Software available to you for download only on the condition that you certify that you are not such a person or entity and that the download is not otherwise in violation of US export control and sanctions regulations.
- General Legal Terms. You agree that Resilio may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Service.

You agree that if Resilio does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy contained in the Terms (or that Resilio has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Resilio's rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Resilio. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms will be effective only if Resilio expressly states in a signed writing that it is waiving a specified Term. If any court of law that has jurisdiction rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable. The Terms may be assigned by Resilio and will inure to the benefit of Resilio, its successors and assigns. The Terms, and your relationship with Resilio under the Terms, will be governed by the laws of the State of California, USA, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. You and Resilio agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in the County of San Francisco, California, USA, to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that Resilio will be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction. The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and Resilio and govern your use of the Service, and completely replace and supersede any prior agreements between you and Resilio, written or oral, in relation to the Service.
