INTRODUCTION

These Misty Robotics Developer Terms (these “Terms”) are a legal agreement between you and Misty Robotics, Inc. (“Misty Robotics”, “we”, “our”, or “us”). These Terms govern your access to and use of our application programming interfaces (“API” or the “Misty Robotics API”), software development kits (“SDK” or the “Misty Robotics SDK”) and computer aided design and related mechanical drawings and specifications (“CAD” or the “Misty Robotics CAD”) and any related documentation, materials, code, data, and other Misty Robotics’ owned materials made available to you by Misty Robotics (collectively with the Misty Robotics API, SDK, and CAD, the “Misty Robotics Developer Materials”) to develop skills, features, or functionality (each a “Skill”) or to develop physical electro-mechanical attachments (each an “Accessory”) for Misty Robotics’ products (each a “Product”).

You may use the Misty Robotics API, SDK, CAD and other Misty Robotics Developer Materials only if you can form a binding contract with Misty Robotics, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. In the event that you are agreeing to this Terms on behalf of a third party entity, you represent and warrant that you have sufficient right to bind such third party to these Terms, in which case, all references to “you” in these Terms shall be references to such third party.

BY ACCESSING OR USING THE MISTY ROBOTICS DEVELOPER MATERIALS, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS.

In the case of inconsistencies between these Terms and information included in Misty Robotics Developer Materials and any other materials related thereto, these Terms will govern and take precedence.

1 Account and Registration. Misty Robotics may now or in the future require you to create a Misty Robotics Developer Account to access and use certain Misty Robotics Developer Materials (your “Account”). You may log into your Account using a unique username and password. You are responsible for safeguarding your password and you agree not to disclose your password to any third party. You are solely responsible for any activities or actions taken under your username, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions.
