    JUSTGIVING API TERMS OF SERVICE Version Date: 15th November 2011 The JustGiving API (the application program interface and other materials provided by JustGiving) (the "JustGiving API") is a service that allows you to include JustGiving features in applications and websites. JustGiving is a trading name of Giving Limited (company number 03979990) whose registered office is at 2nd Floor, Blue Fin Building, 110 Southwark Street, London, SW1 0TA ("JustGiving"). All use of the JustGiving API and every agreement for the use of the JustGiving API ("Agreement") is subject to these terms and by interacting in any way with the JustGiving API, including but not limited to requesting access to the JustGiving API authorisation key or making API calls, you or the entity or company that you represent ("You") unconditionally consent and agree to be bound by and a party to these terms and any revised or new versions of these terms as may be published on our website or as notified to You from time to time (collectively referred to as the "Terms"). These Terms are very important and You should read them very carefully and print or save a copy of them for future reference. If You do not accept all of these Terms then You are not authorised or permitted to use the JustGiving API. We may, at our sole discretion, change these Terms at any time. We will make new versions of these Terms available at [http://apimanagement.justgiving.com/] or by otherwise notifying You of the revised Terms. If You use the JustGiving API at any time after these Terms have changed then You will be deemed to have accepted the new version of these Terms. If You do not accept the changes then You should cease to use the JustGiving API and this Agreement will automatically terminate. By using the JustGiving API you are also agreeing to the practice detailed in the JustGiving privacy policy at www.justgiving.com/info/privacy/. This policy outlines how JustGiving collects and uses your personal information and protects your privacy for use of the JustGiving API.

    1. CERTIFICATION
    If You want to use the JustGiving API then You should apply for an Access API Code ("Access Key") at [http://apimanagement.justgiving.com/]. JustGiving will then consider your application and if accepted (at its sole discretion) will supply you with the Access Key and You can build Your application. Once your application is complete you should submit it to JustGiving and JustGiving will consider it. If accepted (at the sole discretion of JustGiving) then JustGiving will provide You with a confidential security key ("API Key"). The Access Key and API Key are the property of JustGiving and will be revoked if You share them with any third party, if they are compromised, if You violate any Terms, or if this Agreement is terminated for any reason. You shall only be authorised to use the JustGiving API in a live environment in connection with the application which is approved through certification, if you do not submit your application for approval your Access Key will only work in our test environment. If You wish to use the JustGiving API in connection with any other application then You should make a separate request for certification for that other application. Your use of the JustGiving API will be controlled by Your password (which You will select) and user name ("Keywords"). We reserve the right at our sole discretion whether or not to issue any username to You. You are responsible for the security and proper use of all the Keywords and must take all necessary steps to ensure that they are kept confidential, used properly and not disclosed to unauthorised people. We are not liable for any loss of confidentiality or for any damages arising from Your failure to comply with these terms. You must inform us immediately if You have any reason to believe that any Keyword has become known to someone not authorised to use it or if any Keyword is being or is likely to be used in an unauthorised way. Further information on the certification process and other rules relating to the use of the JustGiving API and operation of Your application are set out at [http://apimanagement.justgiving.com/]. You agree to be bound by and comply with such rules as may be varied from time to time.
