This page may be amended from time to time.  You are responsible for ensuring that you review this page regularly.

USARx API Privacy Policy

By accessing or using any API offered by USARx or the USARx Content, you agree to be bound by the terms hereof. If you access or use the API or USARx Content on behalf of a third party (such as a company), you represent and warrant that you have the authority to act on behalf of such third party and to bind such third party to the terms hereof. If you do not have proper authority to act on behalf of a third party, or if you do not agree with these terms, do not use or utilize the API or the USARx Content.

1.Use of API

The API is made available by USARx, LLC, a New York limited liability company ("USARx") to enable you to access USARx Content and to provide such USARx Content to your customers and potential customers.  

2.Updates

USARx reserves the right to modify or revise the API, the USARx Content, and the terms and conditions of this page, at any time in its sole and absolute discretion. Your continued use of the API or the USARx Content after the effective date of any such changes will constitute your acceptance of and agreement to such changes. If you do not agree or consent to any changes, cease use of the API and the USARx Content immediately

3.Key Registration Requirements

In order to access or use an API, you must first register for and receive a USARx API Access Key (the "Key"). You are required to accurately and completely provide all request information during the registration process. The API can only  be used as specifically stated in the registration.  Unless otherwise consented to by USARx, you are only granted one Key and you are responsible for any manner in which it is used.  If your Key is misused, it may be cancelled and you will lose access to the API.  If you contact USARx about the API, you will be required to provide your Key.  You agree to keep your API Key confidential and not to share it with any third party. If your Key becomes compromised, you shall immediately notify USARx.  

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Within a three days of implementing your API, you are required to notify USARx and provide URL(s) and screenshot(s) of your use of the API and USARx Content on your website and/or internet-connected application for mobile devices (collectively, "Your Site"). Failure to do so may result in immediate suspension or termination of your API Key.

4.License

Subject to the terms set forth herein and on the USARx.com website in general, USARx grants you a non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable license to (i) access and use the API to receive the USARx Content; (ii) display the USARx Content on Your Site; and (iii) reproduce and display the USARx name and logo (the "USARx Brand ") solely as required to properly label USARx Content.

You are not authorized to and not allowed to allow anyone else, whether by sublicense or otherwise  to access and use the API to receive the USARx Content or to utilize the USARx Content in any way. 

You may not use the API, USARx Content, or USARx Brand except as specifically provided herein without USARx's prior written consent. 

You acknowledge and agree that USARx may monitor Your Site in order to confirm compliance with the API Agreement and may request information at any time to support your compliance with the API Agreement. Should you fail to provide responsive information, or if USARx, in its sole discretion, determines that you or Your Site is not complying with the API Agreement, USARx may terminate your license and invalidate your API Key with or without notice to you.

An application displaying content from the API must display a link to the USARx homepage with the text "Powered by USARx". In addition, the API provides links back to prescription drug pages on the USARx website ("API Links"), and these must be displayed next to any price results provided by the API, unless express written permission to do otherwise is received from USARx. Display of any price results provided by the API without the API Links may result in the immediate suspension or termination of your API key with or without notice to you.

IN NO EVENT SHALL USARX OR ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES AND SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR OTHER MEASURES OF INDIRECT DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES BASED ON LOST PROFITS, LOST OR CORRUPTED DATA, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS OR ANY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR BASED UPON YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE API, EVEN IF USARX HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES AND WHETHER OR NOT SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES ARE FORESEEABLE.
