Checkjelinkje Light API license

Version 1 | 6-8-2019

Freave offers an application programming interface (API) for the use of the Checkjelinkje Light API in an automated manner. By using the API you can check whether a URL is probably safe. Use is subject to the below terms and conditions.

The Checkjelinkje API is offered by Freave Nederland, Chamber of Commerce number 63956349.

Article 1. Access to the API

1.1. The API is directly available for use.

Article 2. Grant of permission

2.1. For as long as you adhere to all terms and conditions of this document, Freave hereby grants you permission to use the API for your websites, applications and other services.

2.2. It is forbidden to use the Checkjelinkje Light API for any activity that is in violation of Dutch or other applicable laws and regulations.

2.3. Use of the API must be fair to other users (‘fair use policy’). In particular your use should not deviate in an extreme manner from the average. In addition Freave can temporarily limit or suspend the API in case of maintenance, disruptions or abuse.

2.4. You are free to present the data obtained using the API at your own discretion and using your own layout on sites and services under your control. However output presentation must conform with the guidelines published by Freave, which may change from time to time.

2.5. You must accompany each and every presentation of data obtained from the API with the name and/or logo of Checkjelinkje. You must strictly adhere to the instructions regarding manner of presentation as given by Freave. In any event is it strictly forbidden to use the name or logo of Freave and/or Checkjelinkje to create the impression you are part of Freave and/or Freave or have a special status or relationship with Freave and/or Checkjelinkje.

2.6. Data obtained using the API may be kept in a cache for a period of at most 1 hour if such caching is necessary to reduce unnecessary repeat queries. You must take all measures in your power to ensure a visitor or end user cannot copy data obtained using the API (except where the copy is technically unavoidable).

2.7. Should Freave discover that you violate any of the above, or receive a valid complaint alleging the same, Freave may limit or suspend your access to the API until the violation has been ended.

2.8. Freave may recoup from you all damages it suffers as a result of your violation of these terms of use. You agree and hold harmless Freave from all third-party claims arising out of your violation of these terms of use.

Article 3. Availability and maintenance

3.1. Freave uses its best efforts to have the service available at all times but makes no guarantees about uninterrupted availability.

3.2. Freave actively maintains the Checkjelinkje Light API. Maintenance can take place at any time, even if this may negatively impact the availability of the service. Maintenance is announced in advance whenever possible.

3.3. Freave may from time to time adapt Checkjelinkje Light API and the API definition. Your feedback and suggestions are welcome but ultimately Freave decides which adaptations to carry out (or not).

3.4. Except for the documentation offered by Freave, Freave does not offer any support for using the Light API.

Article 4. Intellectual property

4.1. The Checkjelinkje Light API, the accompanying software as well as all information and images on the website is the intellectual property of Freave. None of these items may be copied or used without prior written permission of Freave, except and to the extent permitted by mandatory law. 4.2. If you send information to Freave, for example a bug report or suggestion for improvement, you grant Freave a perpetual and unlimited license to use this information for the service. This does not apply to information you expressly mark as confidential.
