These Terms and Conditions apply to services provided by Go-UPC through its website, located at www.go-upc.com, including subdomains, API and mobile applications (the “Services”).
By clicking “I agree” or by using the Services, you are agreeing, or if you are agreeing on behalf of an entity, the entity is agreeing, to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. If you later disagree with the Terms and Conditions, you agree to stop using the Services and contact Go-UPC.
1. Using the Services
Go-UPC's API Services are provided pursuant to a recurring subscription that permits you to make a number of API calls which varies depending on the particular subscription you have chosen but may not exceed 100 API calls per minute, without the express written consent of Go-UPC. Go-UPC will provide you with an API key and documentation for using API Services. Go-UPC is not responsible for the integration of the API Services with any third party application. You are solely responsible for all development costs, coding, debugging and integration with the API and your application, including in connection with any updates which Go-UPC may make to the API Services.
Go-UPC reserves the right to, in its sole discretion refuse to accept an API subscription.
In response to a successful API call, Go-UPC will return available product information such as a GTIN number, barcode type (UPC, EAN or ISBN), product name and category (“Product Data”). Product Data shall be provided to you in JSON format. Go-UPC does not make any representation or guarantee that the Services will produce Product Data in response to lookup requests you submit.
2. Service Fees
You agree to pay Go-UPC such fees for the Services as presented to you at the time of purchase. Go-UPC accepts payment by Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover, Diners Club, PayPal, check or direct deposit, which is required prior to commencement of the Services and is non-refundable. Unless otherwise specified, all payments shall be made in US Dollars. All fees are exclusive of applicable taxes, which you agree to pay based on applicable laws. You acknowledge and agree that payment is processed through a third party service provider who may subject you to additional terms and to whom your payment information is disclosed.
You will be automatically charged for your subscription to the API Services on a monthly, recurring basis. You may cancel, upgrade or downgrade your subscription to your API Services by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellation requests sent by email must be emailed to Go-UPC at least 3 business days prior to the date such API Services are renewed and is effective upon your receipt of an email from Go-UPC confirming the cancellation. Fees are subject to change on notice.
If we are unable to charge your credit card or your payment is declined or reversed for any reason, Go-UPC will attempt to contact you to make an alternate payment arrangement. If, following 1 week after the invoice date, payment has not been made, Go-UPC may, in its sole discretion, terminate or suspend your subscription.
For API Services, you will be provided a unique API key (“Login Information”). You are solely responsible for keeping Login Information confidential and any use of your Login Information, whether or not you authorized such use. If you become aware of, or reasonably suspect, unauthorized use of your account you must immediately notify Go-UPC by emailing email@example.com.
You may not create more than one free account (unless Go-UPC provides you with its express written consent) or access a free account using any bot, spider, or other automated script, program, software, process or technology.
