Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than 14 days after they are posted, except for changes addressing new API functions or changes made for legal reasons, which will be effective immediately. Your continued use of the APIs and Content after any change or amendment means you agree to such changes or amendments. If you do not agree to such changes or amendments, you must stop using the APIs and Content immediately and terminate these Terms.
8. Term and Termination
(a) Term. These Terms will take effect when you first use the APIs and will remain in effect until terminated according to these Terms (the “Duration”).

9. Indemnification; Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitations on Liability
(a) Indemnity. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless us, our affiliates, and each of our employees, officers, directors, agents and representatives, from and against all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, penalties, fines, costs, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or relating to: (i) your breach of these Terms; (ii) your use of the APIs, Content, and Developer Documentation; (iii) your Application; (iv) any content or data routed into or used with the APIs by you, those acting on your behalf, or your end users; (v) your actual or alleged infringement, misappropriation or violation of Runtime.dev, its affiliate’s or any third party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights.

IN ANY CASE, OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY UNDER THESE TERMS SHALL BE LIMITED TO $100.
10. Fees and Payments
(a) Fees. You agree to pay all fees or charges to your account (“Fees”) in accordance with the prices and billing terms in effect at the time the Fee is incurred. Except as otherwise provided in a separate agreement between you and Runtime.dev, the current API pricing is set forth on our website located at https://runtime.dev. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that we identify even if we have already issued an invoice or received payment.
We reserve the right to change our prices at any time. We will post notice of price increases in the pricing or applicable terms to your account and/or to our website. Price increases will become effective no sooner than 14 days after they are posted, except for increases made for legal reasons, or increases made to Preview Services, which will be effective immediately. Any price changes will apply to the Fees charged to your account immediately after the effective date of the changes. If the change to any pricing or terms is not acceptable, your sole and exclusive remedy will be to cease using the API and cancel this Agreement. By continuing to use the service after notice of the change, you accept all such changes.
(b) Taxes. Unless otherwise stated, Fees do not include federal, state, local, and foreign taxes, duties, levies, imposts, withholdings, and other similar assessments or any interest and penalties there on (“Taxes”). You are responsible for all Taxes associated with your purchase, excluding Taxes based on our net income. When required to do so, we will invoice you for such Taxes by adding the requisite amount to your Fees. You agree to timely pay such Taxes and promptly provide us with an original receipt showing the payment, together with such additional documentary evidence as we may from time to time reasonably require. You hereby confirm that Runtime.dev can rely on the name and address set forth in your account registration as being the place of supply for tax purposes. You agree to be responsible for keeping this information accurate and up-to-date in your Account Settings.
(c) Billing Information. You must provide your contact information, including bill-to address and email address, if applicable, as well as information for a valid payment method that you are authorized to use. It is your responsibility to maintain complete and accurate billing information.
(d) Payments. Runtime.dev will charge your credit card or digital payment method on a monthly basis, but may change the date on which the charge is posted at any time. All Fees are payable in U.S. dollars and are due upon invoice issuance. All payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid are nonrefundable except as provided in this Agreement.
(e) Payment Authorization. By providing us with credit card information or information for any supported digital payment method, you authorize Runtime.dev and its affiliates to store this information and to charge the credit card or digital payment method you have provided for the Fees when due until your account is terminated. In addition, you authorize us to use a third-party payment processor in processing payments. If you notify us to stop using a previously designated payment method and fail to designate an alternative, your credit card expires or is declined, your payment information requires an update, or your payment cannot be completed for any other reason, we may provide you with notice via email and immediately suspend your use and access to the APIs until we receive payment.
(f) Disputes and Late Payments. If you wish to dispute any Fees or Taxes, you must notify us in writing by emailing email@example.com within thirty (30) days of the date of the disputed invoice. Any undisputed amounts past due are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% of the unpaid balance per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, whichever is lower) from the date such payment was due until the date paid. You will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by us in collecting past due amounts. If any amount of your Fees are past due, we may suspend your API access after we provide you written notice of late payment. Any amounts due under this Agreement shall not be withheld or offset by you against amounts due to you for any reason.
(g) Free Trial. If you start a free trial and cancel before it ends, you cannot reactivate the free trial. If you elect to upgrade to paid API access at any point before the end of your free trial period, you acknowledge that your free trial may expire and Runtime.dev shall have no obligation to reinstate, reimburse, or otherwise compensate you for any such expired free trial.
11. Export Control, Sanctions Compliance, and Related Matters
You may not use or otherwise export or re-export any APIs or any Runtime.dev Confidential Information received from Runtime.dev except as authorized by United States law and the laws of the jurisdiction in which the APIs or the Runtime.dev Confidential Information was obtained. In particular, but without limitation, the APIs and API Confidential Information may not be used in or for the benefit of, exported, or re-exported (a) into any U.S. embargoed countries (collectively, the “Embargoed Countries”) or (b) to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals, any other restricted party lists (existing now or in the future) identified by the Office of Foreign Asset Control, or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person’s List or Entity List, or any other restricted party lists (all of the foregoing restricted party lists, the “Restricted Party Lists”). You represent and warrant that you are not located in any Embargoed Countries and not on any of the Restricted Party Lists.
In addition, you agree to exclude, control, screen or limit (i) the regions from which your end users may access or use any of your Applications, and (ii) the persons or organizations who are your end users, in either case, in order to comply with all applicable laws related to Embargoed Countries or Restricted Party Lists, including any requirements or obligations to know your end users directly. Runtime.dev is not responsible for and does not have the means to know your end users.
12. General Terms
(a) Additional Terms. In addition to these Terms, your use or access of the APIs may also be subject to any other agreements you have with Runtime.dev. If you use the APIs as an interface to, or in conjunction with, other Runtime.dev products and services, then the terms of those products and services also apply to you and your end users.
(b) Relationship of the Parties. These Terms do not create a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between you and Runtime.dev or any of our affiliates. Runtime.dev and you are independent contractors and neither party will have the power to bind the other or to incur obligations on the other’s behalf without the other party’s prior written consent.
(c) Use of Brands. You will not use Runtime.dev’s or any of its affiliates’ names, logos, or trademarks, without our prior written consent.
(d) U.S. Federal Agency Entities. The APIs were developed solely at private expense and are commercial computer software and related documentation within the meaning of the applicable U.S. Federal Acquisition Regulation and agency supplements thereto.
(e) Assignment and Delegation. You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under these Terms, including in connection with a change of control. Any purported assignment and delegation shall be null and void. We may freely assign or delegate any and all rights and obligations under these Terms without notice to you.
(f) Equitable Remedies. You acknowledge that if you violate or breach these Terms, it may cause irreparable harm to Runtime.dev and its affiliates. Accordingly, you agree that, if you violate or breach these Terms, Runtime.dev shall have the right to seek injunctive relief against you in addition to any other legal remedies that Runtime.dev may have.
(g) Entire Agreement. These Terms and any policies incorporated in these Terms contain the entire agreement between you and Runtime.dev regarding the use of the APIs and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications, or understandings between you and Runtime.dev on that subject.
(h) Jurisdiction, Venue and Choice of Law. These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware. Except as provided in Section 12(k) below, all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms will be brought exclusively in the federal or state courts of Hamilton County, Ohio, USA, and you and Runtime.dev each consents to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
(i) Notices. All notices will be in writing and will reference these Terms. We may notify you using the registration information you provided or the email address associated with your Application. Service will be deemed given on the date of receipt if delivered by email or on the date sent via courier if delivered by post. Runtime.dev accepts service of process at this address:
Mesh Intelligent Technologies, Inc.
1311 Vine St., Unit 300
Cincinnati, OH 45202
(j) Waiver and Severability. If you do not comply with these Terms, and Runtime.dev does not take action right away, this does not mean the Runtime.dev is giving up any rights it may have (such as taking action in the future). If a particular term in these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, that term will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and it will not affect the enforceability of any other terms.
(k) Dispute Resolution. In the event of a dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or in connection with these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof (collectively, “Disputes”), each party’s senior representatives will engage in good faith negotiations with the other party’s senior representatives to amicably resolve a Dispute (other than for Disputes related to the intellectual property of a party, which will be resolved in litigation before the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio). If parties are unable to resolve a Dispute within thirty (30) days after the first request to engage in good faith negotiations or within such other time period as the parties may agree to in writing, then either party may commence binding arbitration under JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The parties will share equally the fees and expenses of the JAMS arbitrator. The arbitration will be conducted by a sole arbitrator chosen by the mutual agreement of the parties or, failing that, by JAMS under its then prevailing rules. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will have the authority to grant specific performance or any other equitable or legal remedy, including provisional remedies. Each party will be responsible for its own incurred expenses arising out of any dispute resolution procedure. Any arbitration proceedings will take place in Cincinnati Ohio.
(l) Class Waiver. Each party agrees that any Disputes between them must be brought against each other on an individual basis only. That means neither party can bring a Dispute as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action, or representative action, in court, an arbitration proceeding or otherwise. In an arbitration proceeding, an arbitrator cannot combine more than one person’s or entity’s Disputes into a single case and cannot preside over any consolidated class or representative proceeding, and each party agrees the arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s or entity’s case can only impact the person or entity that brought a Dispute and cannot impact or otherwise be used to decide Disputes with other people or entities, including other Runtime.dev customers or users. If for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, each party knowingly and irrevocably waives any right to trial by jury in any action, proceeding, or counterclaim arising out of or relating to these Terms. If a court decides that this Section 12(l) is not enforceable or valid, then this Section 12(l) will be null and void, but the rest of these Terms will still apply.
(m) Notice of Business Acquisitions, Combinations and Similar Transactions. If you are a corporation, limited liability company, limited partnership, trust or other entity, you will notify us in writing at least 30 days prior to consummating a transaction or a series of transactions in which you buy, sell, share or transfer one or more API keys pursuant to a business combination, acquisition, merger, joint venture, partnership transaction, purchase or sale of all or substantially all of the assets of an entity, or liquidation event.
