Startup Jobs API Terms of Service
These Startup Jobs API Terms of Service (the "API Terms") describe your rights and responsibilities when accessing our privately available application programming interfaces (the "APIs") and related API documentation. Please read them carefully.
These API Terms form a binding "Contract" between you and us. "We," "our" and "us" refers to Killbridge Ventures Pte. Ltd. based in Singapore, and "you," and "your," refers to the individual, company or legal entity that you represent.
Access to Our APIs
Subject to the restrictions below, we grant you a non-exclusive, worldwide, non-transferable (subject to the section titled "Assignment"), limited license to access our APIs, content, and documentation only as necessary to develop, test and support an integration of your application (an "Application" or "App") with the Services. You may charge for your Application; however, you may not sell, rent, lease, sublicense, redistribute, or syndicate access to any of our APIs.
Here Are the Rules
Your license to access our APIs and documentation is limited and subject to compliance with these terms. Further, you will not: (A) access our APIs or documentation in violation of any law or regulation; (B) access our APIs in any manner that (i) compromises, breaks or circumvents any of our technical processes or security measures associated with the Services, (ii) poses a security vulnerability to customers or users of the Services, or (iii) tests the vulnerability of our systems or networks; (C) access our APIs or documentation in order to replicate or compete with the Services; (D) attempt to reverse engineer or otherwise derive source code, trade secrets, or know-how of our APIs or Services; or (E) attempt to use our APIs in a manner that exceeds rate limits, or constitutes excessive or abusive usage.
Additionally, you keep us informed about substantial changes to how the API and associated content is used.
Whenever you display a job listing from Startup Jobs, the job title links back to the original page on the Startup Jobs page using the URL supplied by the API. These links will be “SEO-friendly” meaning the label of the link should be the job title, and the link should have no "rel=nofollow" attribute.
A link labelled "Startup Jobs" to the Startup Jobs homepage is included anywhere the data is used or displayed.
To prevent stale data, any content that is fetched through the API will be deleted within seven days. If your app includes job listings from other sources, you will need to keep track which ones were provided by us. It’s recommended you fetch new data every six days to retain access to the most up-to-data data.
You must make reasonable efforts to prevent third parties from accessing the content in automated ways such as scrapers and crawlers.
The following use cases are acceptable under the terms:
Displaying job listings on a publicly accessible website. The website should also be indexable by Google and other search engines.
Accessing additional Startup Jobs data through the use of scraping, crawling, or other automated ways.
Providing third parties access to data in ways that make it impractical or impossible to revoke access to that data. This includes data exports and providing your own API.
Ownership and Proprietary Rights
Reservation of Rights
We own and will continue to own our APIs, documentation, content, and Services, including all related intellectual property rights therein. All of our rights not expressly granted by the Contract are hereby retained.
Feedback is Welcome
The more suggestions our developers make, the better our APIs become. If you send us any feedback or suggestions regarding the APIs or documentation, there is a chance we will use it, so you grant us an unlimited, irrevocable, perpetual, sublicensable, transferable, royalty-free license to use any such feedback or suggestions for any purpose without any obligation or compensation to you. If we choose not to implement the suggestion, please don’t take it personally. We appreciate it nonetheless.
You may terminate the Contract by discontinuing use of our APIs. We may terminate the Contract with or without cause, and without notice to you. Upon termination of the Contract, all rights and licenses granted to you will terminate immediately. You understand that any APIs or documentation that are not made generally available but that are otherwise made available to you are the confidential information of Startup Jobs. Upon termination of the Contract, you will promptly destroy copies of any documentation and any other Startup Jobs information in your possession or control that was received under the Contract. This includes, but is not limited to, any job listings and company data accessed through the APIs.
Representations; Disclaimer of Warranties
You represent and warrant that you have validly entered into the Contract and have the legal power to do so.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED FOR HEREIN, THE APIS, DOCUMENTATION AND ALL RELATED COMPONENTS AND INFORMATION ARE PROVIDED BY US ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, AND WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE APIS WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE.
Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL OUR LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE CONTRACT (WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY) EXCEED US$100.
IN NO EVENT WILL WE HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, COVER OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES HOWEVER CAUSED, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, AND WHETHER OR NOT YOU OR THE THIRD PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
The limitations under this "Limitation of Liability" section apply with respect to all legal theories, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, and to the extent permitted by law. The provisions of this "Limitation of Liability" section allocate the risks under the Contract between the parties, and the parties have relied on these limitations in determining whether to enter into the Contract.
Application of Consumer Law
Our APIs and documentation are intended for use by businesses and organizations and not for consumer purposes. To the maximum extent permitted by law, you hereby acknowledge and agree that consumer laws do not apply.
Your Indemnification of Us
The sections titled "Our Rights to Suspend Access and Audit," "Ownership & Proprietary Rights," "Termination," "Representations; Disclaimer of Warranties," "Limitation of Liability," "Your Indemnification of Us," "Limitations on Indemnifications," and "Survival," as well as all of the provisions under the general heading "General Provisions," will survive any termination or expiration of the Contract.
Modifications to our APIs and Documentation
Startup Jobs is still evolving, and so we need the flexibility to occasionally make changes to our APIs, including backwards incompatible changes. We will try to give notice of these changes. Also, parts of our API are undocumented, including certain methods, events, and properties. Given that these undocumented aspects of our APIs may change at any time, you should not rely on their behaviors.
Modifications to the Contract
As our business evolves, we may change these API Terms and the other components of the Contract. If we make a material change to the Contract, we will provide you with reasonable notice prior to the change taking effect, by emailing the email address associated with your account. The materially revised Contract will become effective on the date set forth in our notice, and all other changes will become effective upon posting of the change. If you access our APIs after the effective date, that access will constitute your acceptance of any revised terms and conditions.
No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under the Contract will constitute a waiver of that right. No waiver under the Contract will be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the party being deemed to have granted the waiver.
The Contract will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. If any provision of the Contract is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision will be modified by the court and interpreted so as best to accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of the Contract will remain in effect.
Neither party may assign or delegate any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the other party (not to be unreasonably withheld). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign the Contract in its entirety, without consent of the other party, to a corporate affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets. Any purported assignment in violation of this section is void. A party’s sole remedy for any purported assignment by the other party in breach of this section will be, at the non-assigning party’s election, termination of the Contract upon written notice to the assigning party. Subject to the foregoing, the Contract will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their respective successors and permitted assigns.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Singapore.
The Contract, including these API Terms constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter.
