API Use Policy

Last Updated: September 18, 2013

BuzzStream provides open APIs that you can access at https://api.buzzstream.com (the “APIs”). The APIs make it possible for developers to better use the Service and build integrations that help other people use the Service in new ways (each an “Integration”. This API Use Policy (the “Policy”) is intended to ensure that people can build on and benefit from BuzzStream while protecting our system as well as our users’ rights. Your use of the APIs must comply with this Policy, our Terms of Use, and our Privacy Policy.

1. Login

You will only access the APIs using OAuth or an API key. If you have an Integration, then users must have the option to log in via OAuth. You won’t prompt users to provide their BuzzStream username or password.

2. Privacy

You will respect the privacy of our users. Your Integration must clearly display the information you will collect from them when they use the Integration.

3. Ownership

We own all worldwide rights, titles and interest in the Services and the APIs, including all intellectual property rights, marks, code, and features. You won’t infringe or copy our code, design, or content. Any rights not expressly granted by this policy are withheld, so if you don’t see it here, than it’s not a right we’re giving you. You own all worldwide rights, titles, and interest in the Integration, except for the APIs, our marks, and the Service (including all intellectual property rights). If you give us comments about the APIs or the Services, we may copy, modify, create derivative works, display, disclose, distribute, and use that feedback without any obligation to compensate you.
