(b) You and Your Authorized Users will not knowingly, develop an Application or Authorized Application or make any products, services or content available through an Application or Authorized Application, which in isolation or with any other software, system, network, or data would, in Q2's judgment, acting reasonably, contain functionality that could be used for inappropriate or improper purposes or interfere with the proper operation of, degrade, cause damage to or adversely affect any software, hardware, services, system, network or data used by Q2 or its customers, or any of their respective products or services, and You will immediately cease any such activity upon Q2 delivering notice of same to You.
(c) You and Your Authorized Users will not use the SDK or API to develop an Application or Authorized Application or make any products, services or content available through an Application or Authorized Application, which is/are intended to be used to commit or would be used predominantly to commit any crime or other illegal or tortious acts. Without limiting the foregoing, any products, services or content available through an Application or Authorized Application must not contain or link to any content, or perform any function, that is illegal (e.g. against any criminal, civil or statutory law or regulation), including, without limitation, any libel or defamation, obscenity, breach of privacy, infringement or misappropriation of any intellectual property rights and/or other proprietary rights of any party.
(d) Any products, services or content made available through an Application or Authorized Application, do not, and will not contain any: (i) virus, trojan horse, worm, backdoor, shutdown mechanism, malicious code, sniffer, bot, drop dead mechanism, or spyware; or (ii) any other software, code, or program that is likely to or is intended to: (A) have an adverse impact on the performance of, (B) disable, corrupt, or cause damage to, or (C) cause or facilitate unauthorized access to or deny authorized access to, or cause to be used for any unauthorized or inappropriate purposes, any software, hardware, network, services, systems, or data ("Malware").

If Your Application or Authorized Application stores personal or sensitive information provided by users, it must do so securely.
(h) Q2 reserves the right to limit the number of API calls You are allowed to make. Q2 may temporarily suspend Your access to the API if You exceed API call limits. Attempts to circumvent API call limits may result in termination of this Agreement. Unused API calls will not rollover to the next call limit period.

Without limiting the foregoing, the Receiving Party will use at least the same degree of care and security safeguards (and not less than a reasonable degree of care) it uses to prevent the disclosure of its own Confidential Information to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of the Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will promptly notify the Disclosing Party of any actual or suspected misuse or unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information in the Receiving Party's possession, custody or control.

The Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information to the extent such disclosure is required by applicable law or regulating agency, provided that Receiving Party provides notice to Disclosing Party prior to such disclosure (to the extent permitted by applicable law), and reasonably cooperates with Disclosing Party's efforts to obtain a protective order or otherwise protect or restrict such disclosure.

Nothing in this Agreement shall impair, limit or curtail Q2's right to continue with its development, maintenance and/or distribution of Q2's technology or products, including any technology or products that have or might have design and/or functionality similar to Your Applications or Authorized Applications, or contemplated Applications or Authorized Applications or concepts included in either. You agree that other than Your rights to the Applications or Authorized Applications described above, You shall not assert any Intellectual Property Rights arising out of or in connection with this API or SDK or modifications made thereto against Q2, its subsidiaries or affiliates, or their customers, direct or indirect, agents and contractors for the manufacture, use, import, licensing, offer for sale or sale of any Q2 Services.

Q2 is under no obligation to provide You with any updates to the API or SDK. However, if Q2 does provide You with any updates, such updates shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including the license) or such agreement, if any, which accompanies such updates. Further, to enable all or part of the functionality of an Application or Authorized Application you may need to enter into one or more additional agreements with Q2. Q2 reserves the right to modify the API or SDK, and to release subsequent versions. You may be required to use the most recent version of the API or SDK in order to obtain functionality for associated plug-ins and applications. You agree that the form and nature of the API and SDK that Q2 provides may change without prior notice to You and that future versions of the API or SDK may be incompatible with applications developed on previous versions of the API or SDK.

Q2 licenses the SDK and API to You only on an "AS-IS" basis. Q2 makes no representation with respect to the adequacy of the API or any items in the SDK, whether or not used by You in the development of any products, for any particular purpose or with respect to their adequacy to produce any particular result. Q2 and its suppliers shall not be liable for loss or damage arising out of this Agreement or from the distribution or use of Your products that access the API or contain portions of the SDK. Q2 AND ITS SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED CONDITIONS OR WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NONINFRINGEMENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY RIGHT IN RESPECT OF THE API AND ITEMS IN THE SDK OR ANY SERVICES RELATED TO THE API OR SDK.

Some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental, consequential or special damages, or the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on how long an implied warranty may last, so the above limitations in Sections 11 and 12 may not apply to You.
