AccuWeather Data Service Terms of Use

These Terms of Use are a legal agreement between You and Your organization or company (if applicable) (collectively “Developer” or “You”) and AccuWeather Intl., LLC (hereafter “AccuWeather” or “We”) relating to Your use of one or more of AccuWeather’s Applications Programming Interfaces (hereafter “APIs”) and the information contained in the APIs (the “API Data”) to provide additional functionality in connection with Developer’s product offerings which may include applications, products, services, programs or other uses produced or provided by You (“Developer Uses”). You represent that You have authority to enter into this agreement and by clicking “I accept” or otherwise accessing the APIs, that You accept these Terms of Use. If You are using the APIs on behalf of an entity, You represent and warrant that You have authority to bind that entity to the Terms of Use and by accepting the Terms, You are doing so on behalf of that entity (and all references to "You" in the Terms refer to that entity as well).

You represent that You are at least eighteen (18) years of age (or the age of majority in Your jurisdiction) and have the capacity to create a binding legal obligation with regard to Your commitments in the Terms of Use.

We have the right to update or change the Terms of Use at any time. The most current version of the Terms of Use will supersede and replace all prior versions. By continuing to use the APIs after modifications are made, You agree to be bound by any and all changes to the Terms of Use. If You choose not to agree, You must immediately discontinue Your use of the APIs. Provided that You fully comply with these Terms of Use and pay the applicable fees, You are granted the license below. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THESE TERMS OF USE. BY USING THE APIs OR THE API DATA, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF USE AND TO COMPLY WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS AND REGULATIONS IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT USE THE APIs OR THE API DATA.

  1. Account and Registration. Developer shall provide AccuWeather with true and correct contact information and shall update such information as necessary to ensure that AccuWeather always has current information for the Developer in connection with Developer’s account. Developer consents to receiving phone calls, emails, texts or any other type of messages from AccuWeather relating to the account and for general marketing purposes. Once You have successfully registered and provided Your credit card information, You will be given an API license key(s) relating to the chosen APIs. All activities that occur related to Your account and API license key(s) are Your responsibility. In the event that You suspect that either may have been compromised, You shall notify AccuWeather immediately and terminate Your account. You are responsible for any and all activity in connection with Your API license key(s) and Your account. You agree to have complete and correct billing and credit card information on file at all times and to be responsible for all charges in relation to Your account. All queries requesting data from the APIs must reference Your valid login API license key(s). You agree to keep such account information and API license key(s) information confidential.
     
  2. Subscription Terms. You agree to pay to AccuWeather the Package fee(s). Failure to pay these fees in a timely manner will result in an interruption of Your access to the APIs and the API Data. Charges will be calculated based upon the subscription Package selected, and are applicable to the current version of the package selected. You may cancel Your Package at any time. Failure of payment shall render due and payable all sums plus a late payment charge of one and one half percent per month. Fees may be prorated for portions of months. Use of the APIs and the API Data beyond the limits in Your chosen Package will result in charges to Your credit card account. Fees and payment terms therefore are subject to change, so please check these Terms of Use from time to time. Packages, once purchased, are nonrefundable, regardless of use or lack of use by You. Absolutely no credits or refunds are available. Once a charge has been processed to Your credit card or wireless account, You shall not request that Your credit card reverse the charge or charge it back to AccuWeather. If You have a legitimate basis to request a credit for a charge previously processed against Your credit card account, he or she shall request a credit from AccuWeather by written notice and resolve the issue directly with AccuWeather. Any reversed charges which cause the credit card company to impose a charge back, refund, or credit cost against AccuWeather shall be reimposed by AccuWeather upon You. Such costs may exceed the cost of the reversed item or charge back by many times.
     
  3. Renewal Terms. Monthly subscription Packages shall continue to renew monthly until either party terminates. Each month, you will be billed for that calendar month at the start of that calendar month at midnight UTC time; however your charges may not appear until the second calendar day of the month.
     
  4. Cancellation. Developer may cancel the subscription Package at any time. In order to cancel, log in to Your account and select “My Purchased Packages” from the user menu (available by clicking on Your username in the top right). Click the “Cancel” button beside the Package(s) that You would like to cancel. Click “Confirm.” Upon cancellation, Your API license key(s) will become inactive at midnight UTC on the date of cancellation. If you do not wish to be billed for next month’s service, you will need to cancel before the end of the current calendar month at midnight UTC time.
     
  5. Responsibility for Developer Uses. Developer is solely responsible for Developer Uses and AccuWeather shall have no liability or obligations to You or to any third parties with respect to the same (including support obligations). Developer represents, warrants and covenants that Developer has and will at all times maintain the right to provide all of Developer Uses hereunder and the Developer Uses do not infringe the intellectual property or other rights of any third parties. Developer also represents, warrants and covenants that all of Developer Uses will not contain viruses, worms, malware or any other harmful scripts or code. AccuWeather reserves the right to suspend or terminate access to the APIs without prior notice in the event that You are suspected of violating the Terms of Use.
     
  6. License. Subject to Your compliance with these Terms of Use (including but not limited to payment hereunder and the Conditions and Restrictions below), AccuWeather hereby grants to Developer a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited license to use and integrate the APIs into Developer Uses (hereafter the “License”).

If AccuWeather assigns Developer credentials (e.g. Developer IDs), You must use them with the applicable APIs. You will not misrepresent or mask either Your identity or Your API Developer's identity when using the APIs.

    In the event that the desired use by Developer is not covered by the License herein, You may contact AccuWeather at sales@accuweather.com to discuss a separate license.

    AccuWeather may change the APIs at any time without notice and for any or no reason, in its sole discretion, and Developer acknowledges these actions may make the version of the APIs being utilized by Developer obsolete.

    Upon request, Developer will provide AccuWeather with information, access and means to evaluate Developer’s use of the APIs and the AccuWeather Mark(s) free-of-charge in order to determine compliance with the Terms of Use.

    All comments, feedback information or materials submitted by Developer to AccuWeather shall be considered non-confidential and Property of AccuWeather. AccuWeather shall be free to use them on an unrestricted, royalty-free basis.

    AccuWeather is not responsible to Developer or any third party or entity in connection with Developer Uses.

  10. Indemnification. In connection with the Developer Uses, Developer agrees to be solely responsible for any Developer Uses, including but not limited to such liability which results from infringement of copyrights, patents, other proprietary rights, or any other harm (including but not limited to harm caused by spyware, malware, worms, Trojan horses and viruses) resulting from Developer Uses. Developer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless AccuWeather and its parents, affiliates, directors, shareholders, representatives, employees and agents (the “Affiliated Parties”) from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, actions or suits asserted by a third party, and all costs, liabilities, judgments, expenses and damages, including reasonable attorneys’ fees (collectively, “Losses”) suffered, sustained, incurred or paid in connection therewith, arising out of, resulting from or related to (i) Your access to or use of the APIs and/or the API Data, including, without limitation, any claim that Developer Use infringes any proprietary, intellectual property or personal right of any third party or violates any law; (ii) any breach by Developer of these Terms of Use; or (iii) any negligence of the Developer arising in connection with these Terms of Use; or (iv.) violation by Developer of any applicable laws, rules, regulations or statutes.

    Developer will not enter into any settlement that imposes any responsibility, liability or obligation on AccuWeather and/or Affiliated Parties, or contains any admission or acknowledgement of wrongdoing.

    Developer’s obligations under this paragraph shall survive termination of the Terms of Use for any reason.

    For purposes of clarification, the indemnification obligations of Developer shall not include any third party claims that the APIs, the API Data, or the AccuWeather Mark(s), as provided by AccuWeather without modification and not as implemented by Developer or combined with Developer Uses, directly and independently and infringe the intellectual property rights of a third party.

You agree that You will not export or otherwise use or transfer the APIs, directly or indirectly, to a prohibited country. AccuWeather makes no claims that the APIs may be lawfully accessed, used or downloaded outside of the United States. Any such use of the APIs may not be lawful by certain persons or in particular countries or territories. Developer assumes all risk and is solely responsible for compliance with applicable laws, rules and regulations in a jurisdiction.
     
  13. Compliance with Law, Third Party Rights, and Other AccuWeather Terms of Service. Developer will comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and third party rights (including without limitation laws regarding the import or export of data or software, privacy, and local laws). You will not use the APIs or the API Data to encourage or promote illegal activity or violation of third party rights. You will not violate any other terms of service with AccuWeather (or its affiliates). Developer represents and warrants that all Developer Use and any products, services, software, equipment, technology or materials of any kind utilized by Developer in connection with the use or display of the APIs or the API Data does not and will not violate or infringe upon the intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party or violate any applicable rule, law, regulation and will not create any liability for AccuWeather.

    If You use the APIs as an interface to, or in conjunction with other AccuWeather products or services, then the terms for those other products or services also apply. If there is a conflict between these terms and additional terms applicable to a separate agreement between You and AccuWeather or an affiliate in common ownership with AccuWeather, the additional terms will control for that conflict.

  14. Limitations on APIs. AccuWeather sets and enforces limits on Your use of the APIs (e.g. limiting the number of API requests that You may make or the number of users You may serve), in our sole discretion. You agree to, and will not attempt to circumvent, such limitations documented with the APIs. If Developer desires to use any APIs beyond these limits or the license described herein, Developer must obtain AccuWeather's express consent. AccuWeather may decline such request for any reason or no reason; or condition acceptance subject to additional terms and/or charges for that use. To seek such approval, contact AccuWeather.

AccuWeather’s failure to perform or breach of the Terms of Use, resulting from any event(s) not specified above, shall cause it to be liable to Developer (if such liability is determined by a court of law) in a maximum aggregate amount not to exceed $100.00 USD. This shall be the exclusive remedy hereunder. THE AVAILABILITY OF THE APIs AND THE API DATA IS DEPENDENT UPON OPEN COMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS PROVIDED BY THIRD PARTIES AND ACCUWEATHER IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR FAILURES IN THE APIs AND THE API DATA FOR THIS OR ANY OTHER REASON.

    Assignability. Neither the Terms of Use nor any rights or obligations hereunder may be assigned by Developer without the express written consent of AccuWeather and written acceptance of the Terms of Use by the assignee.

    No Agency. Nothing herein shall be deemed to create an agency, partnership, employment relationship, or joint venture between the parties. Any manner of suit, action or claim of any nature or kind against AccuWeather by Developer or third parties shall be brought within one year from date of occurrence of the earliest event giving rise to such suit, action or claim. AccuWeather shall have no responsibility to retain records of transmissions by or between AccuWeather and Developer or records of forecasts, data, graphics or products in whatever form or nature, that may have been produced or supplied under the Terms of Use and AccuWeather shall not be required to produce same by any adverse party.

    Termination. Developer’s use of the APIs which is inconsistent with the grant of license herein or any delinquency in Developer’s payment obligations shall be the basis for immediate termination of the Package and the License granted pursuant to the Terms of Use by AccuWeather or the imposition of appropriate charges for the uses or both. This shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, other legal and equitable remedies available to AccuWeather and shall not affect the sums due hereunder.

    Waiver. The failure of AccuWeather to require the performance of any term of the Terms of Use or the waiver by AccuWeather of any breach under the Terms of Use shall not prevent a subsequent enforcement of such term by AccuWeather nor be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach.
