Terms of Service for API-based Service IntegrationsLast updated: Jul 19, 2023
These Terms of Service are effective on November 1, 2020 for all customers agreeing to these Terms of Service for the first time.
If you have previously agreed to a version of our Terms of Service before November 1, 2020, please note that these previously released Terms of Service will be replaced and these Terms of Service will be effective as of December 1, 2020. Please be aware that by continuing to use our Services after December 1, 2020, you are accepting these Terms of Service.
1. Scope and Parties
In these Terms of Service (hereafter “Agreement” or “Terms”), “we”, “us”, “our” or “Eyeson” will refer collectively to Eyeson Gmbh, Herrengasse 3, 8010 Graz, Austria.
The terms “you” “your” and “Customer” will refer to you. To be eligible to register for a customer account in order to use the Eyeson Services, you must review and accept these Terms by clicking on the “I Accept” or “Get Started” button or other mechanism provided.
If you are registering for a customer account in order to use the Eyeson Services on behalf of an organization, then you are agreeing to these Terms for that organization and promising to Eyeson that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms (and, in which case, the terms “you” and “your” or “Customer” will refer to that organization). The exception to this is if that organization has a separate written agreement with Eyeson covering the use of the Eyeson Services, in which case that agreement will govern such use.
PLEASE REVIEW THESE TERMS CAREFULLY. ONCE ACCEPTED, THESE TERMS BECOME A BINDING LEGAL COMMITMENT BETWEEN YOU AND Eyeson. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, YOU SHOULD NOT CLICK THE “I ACCEPT” OR “GET STARTED” BUTTON AND YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE Eyeson SERVICES.
When we refer to “Eyeson Services” in these Terms, we mean to include all products and services that Eyeson offers, and that you order under an Order Form or by using the Eyeson customer account. This also includes Eyeson services provided to you on a trial basis or otherwise free of charge.
When we refer to the “Eyeson API” or “Eyeson API-based service for video meetings” we mean an application programming interface for the Eyeson Services provided to you by us.
Eyeson provides a license for a Software as a Service (SaaS) “API-based service for video meetings” described in its latest Service Level Agreement (SLA) which is part of these Terms.
These Terms govern the purchase, access and use of software-as-a-service from Eyeson by the Customer. The Terms become effective when Eyeson accepts Customers’ order, upon renewal of an order or upon Customers’ use of Eyeson SaaS (defined in Section 2) and will remain in effect unless terminated pursuant to section 18 (Termination).
2. Eyeson Software-as-a-Service
Eyeson Software-as-a-Service” or “Eyeson SaaS” means the Eyeson branded online software solutions that Eyeson makes available for Customer accessible through a network connection, each as described in the API documentation and other exhibits or attachments that are each made part of this Terms (collectively, “API documentation”). The full “API documentation” of the Eyeson SaaS “API-based service for video meetings” is described under the following links:
- https://github.com/eyeson-team/ (on GitHub)
- https://help.eyeson.com/ (general help for Eyeson functionality)
- https://www.eyeson.com/developers/ (developers landing page)
The terms for use for all Eyeson Services are stated in the API documentation. When Eyeson refers to the “API documentation” Eyeson means all of the Eyeson API instruction manuals and guides, online help files and technical documentation made publicly available by Eyeson for the Services, which may be updated from time to time.
When Eyeson refers to the “Customer Application” Eyeson means any software application or service that Customer makes available to End Users that interfaces with the Eyeson Services.
Customer may place orders (“Order”) for Eyeson SaaS through our website, customer-specific portal, or by letter or e-mail (each upon Eyesons' acceptance). The term of each Eyeson SaaS subscription is stated in the applicable Order and begins on the date that Eyeson SaaS is made available to Customer (“SaaS Order Term”).
4. Access Rights
Eyeson will make the Eyeson SaaS available to Customer in accordance with these Terms, including API documentation, service level agreement “SLA” and any Order accepted by Eyeson.
Customer may use Eyeson SaaS, on a non-exclusive basis, solely to:
- use the API-Documentation and Eyeson API as needed to develop Customers’ Application;
- use and make the Eyeson SaaS available to End Users in connection with the use of each Customer Application in accordance with the API-Documentation

During the valid SaaS Order Term, Customer may access and use Eyesons’ SaaS in accordance with this Agreement. Customer is responsible for any and all use of Eyesons’ SaaS through Customers’ credentials or any account that Customer may establish. Customer agrees to maintain the confidentiality of Customers’ account, credentials, and any passwords necessary to use Eyeson SaaS. Should Customer believe that there has been unauthorized use of Customers’ account, credentials, or passwords, Customer must immediately notify Eyeson.
5. Usage, Responsibilities and Limitations
Subject to Customer compliance with these Terms, Eyeson grants Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable, revocable license to develop, test, and support Customers’ Application, and allow their Customers to use Customers’ integration of the Eyeson SaaS within Customers’ Application.

(vi) As per our Fair Use Policy, we put limits on API usage to protect the system from receiving more data than it can handle, and to ensure an equitable distribution of the system resources.
When monthly API minutes exceed the limit noticeably for the current monthly plan, and our Customer Success Department has contacted Customers regarding the usage with no response, we have the right to suspend Customers API key until clarification or the next subscription period. On monthly plans, unused minutes cannot be transferred to the next month (reset every month).

This Fair Use Policy (FUP) forms an integral part of the agreement between Customers and Eyeson, as applicable, that governs the use of Eyeson software and services. Capitalized terms used but not defined below, shall have the meaning outlined in the agreement. If Customers do not agree with this FUP, do not use any Eyeson software or services. The limits outlined below apply solely to current plans.
Each Customer, including a company, is limited to one (1) Eyeson API key account.
Every API key is permitted to start a maximum amount of parallel meetings. If more parallel meetings are needed, please contact a dedicated account manager or reach out to our Customer Success Team to discuss available options.
(ix) Eyeson may limit or suspend the services immediately upon notice of one or many of the above causes.
