The following Terms of Service ("Terms") refer to the usage of AudD's API service ("Service") that is operated by AudD, LLC ("AudD", "we") and provided with a link to these Terms. The Terms are valid for our customers and their users (third parties who use our customers' credentials to access the Service). The section titles in the Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
Data Caching and re-use
Without permission from AudD, our customers shall not cache the data they received from the Service in order to re-use it instead of making similar or the same request to the Service.
We collect and keep general information about our customers, including contact and payment information for billing and contact purposes. We also obtain this information in connection with providing the Service and maintaining our relationships with the customers.
We may request a customer to send a phone number to confirm their account. If the customer sends it, we will keep only a hash of this number and not the number itself. We use each phone number only to create a hash that we use to make sure the customer use only a single account to access the Service. We don't share the hashes or the original numbers with third parties.
AudD may collect and use electronic data submitted by the customers and their users to the Service as necessary to provide the Service, including updating, enhancing, securing, and maintaining the Service; and to carry out AudD's contractual obligations to its customers. AudD reserves the right but does not undertake the obligation, to monitor the Service's use and investigate and take appropriate legal action against any party that uses the Service to violate the Terms or applicable law.
We may disclose data that our customers provided to our Service:
- To our subsidiaries and affiliates;
- To contractors, business partners, and service providers we use to support our Service;
- In the event AudD sells or transfers all or a portion of its business or assets (including in the event of a merger, acquisition, joint venture, reorganization, dissolution, or liquidation), in which case data held by us about our customers will be among the assets transferred to the buyer or acquirer;
- If required to do so by law or legal process;
- In response to lawful requests from public authorities, including to meet national security, public interest, or law enforcement requirements.
We do not collect any medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership (including trade union-related views or activities), sex life (including personal sexuality), information on social security measures, the commission or alleged commission of any offense, any proceedings for any offense committed or alleged to have been committed by the individual or the disposal of such proceedings, or the sentence of any court in such proceedings (including administrative proceedings and criminal sanctions) of our customers.
AudD will not contact the customers or their users with third-party advertising or promotion without the customers' explicit permission. AudD strongly values this relationship and do not want to compromise this in any way. AudD will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in the Terms.
As of February 25, 2021, AudD has never received an order under Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act. We would expect to challenge such an order if served on us.
In using the Service, a customer understands that they are liable for all information made available to the customer's users. Customer agrees not to use Service to upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any information that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable.
