Data License

Access to Data is granted on the basis of the Data License. Data Licenses are always temporary licenses granted for a limited period of time. The time period starts the moment the Data License is used.

Licensee agrees to pay fees in accordance with the applicable rates and net payment terms available online on Timeanddate.com’s API site at the time of ordering, unless otherwise set forth in the applicable order forms. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees, once paid, are non-refundable.

Each Data License includes a maximum number of Credits. The Licensee cannot perform more requests against Timeanddate.com’s service endpoints than the total number of credits across all its licenses. Credits limits are not bound to a specific Data License.

Timeanddate.com deducts a number of Credits for every HTTP or HTTPS request that is sent to one of our service endpoints by any means. The amount of credits deducted depends on the request and request parameters which is specified in the API documentation. Deduction is done if the request clearly originates from a Licensee (i.e. is presented with valid authentication tokens) and if the request is not answered with an error message.

After the maximum number of Credits has been used or the Credits have expired, the service endpoint may no longer process the Licensee’s requests. The Licensee can acquire an extension package. By obtaining an extension package, the Data License can be used until the original validity period expires.

If the Data License is not renewed, the Licensee agrees to delete any received or cached Data received during the license period. By request, Licensee shall confirm such compliance in writing. Timeanddate.com reserves the right to disable any service after written notice of deprecation has been provided two (2) years in advance to Licensee. Two (2) years after receipt of the written notice of deprecation, any existing Data License for this service is voided.

Either party may terminate this Agreement and close all of Licensee’s accounts for any reason upon thirty (30) days written notice to the other party. In this case, Licensee shall pay Timeanddate.com an early termination charge: (a) in case of monthly recurring payments a charge of one hundred percent (100%) of the License(s) multiplied by the number of months remaining in the License term; (b) in case of prepaid payments one hundred percent (100%) of the prepaid amount.

Timeanddate.com may terminate this Agreement and close all of Licensee’s accounts in the event Licensee commits any material breach of this Agreement and fails to remedy such material breach within fifteen (15) days after Timeanddate.com provides written notice of such breach to Licensee.
