2 Access to the Unite API
2.1 The API Login Information is the exclusive property of Unite. Unite reserves the right to limit or prevent a Company from accessing and using API Login Information if there is any indication that legal regulations, Third Party rights, the Unite General Terms and Conditions, or any other agreements between Unite and the Company have been breached using a Unite API. When deciding on the measures to be taken and the order in which they are to be applied, Unite must take into consideration the legitimate interests of the Company, particularly whether there is any indication that the Company is not responsible or bears only limited responsibility for the breach.
2.2 For the duration of the User Agreement and in accordance with the provisions of these General Terms and Conditions, Unite shall grant the Company a global, non-exclusive, free of charge, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable right to access the Unite API exclusively in connection with the development, implementation and/or distribution of the Company’s application and/or content and solely in accordance with the respective API documentation, which can be viewed at https://portal.unite.eu/developers/ and on which the respective Unite API is based.
2.3 The Unite API is constantly being improved, for example by adding new and/or removing existing features. Unite shall inform the Company of any major changes (‘breaking changes’) to a Unite API by giving reasonable prior notice. The Company must adjust its systems accordingly during this prior notice period to enable continued use of the API. Unite does not guarantee the unlimited functionality of the latest version of the Unite API after implementing such changes.
