We may also use your email address to send you other messages, such as changes to features of the Service and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out or change your preferences in your account settings. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, or offers.
The Services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other US and foreign laws. These TOS do not grant you any right, title or interest in the Services, any materials therein or transferred thereby, including without limitation, any of POCKYT software, images, text, graphics, illustrations, trademarks, service marks, logos, patents, copyrights, photographs, audio, videos, music, or content belonging to other users, and/or other brand features (collectively, “Our Stuff”) or any intellectual property rights related to any of the foregoing. Our Stuff is the exclusive property of POCKYT and, except as otherwise provided in these TOS, you agree not to sell, license, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publish, adapt, edit, or create derivative works from any of Our Stuff.

Our Services allow you to download a digital payment platform (“Software”) which may update automatically. So long as you comply with these TOS, we give you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable license to use the Services, including without limitation to download and use the Software on your personal computing device, solely to access and use the Services which may include third party components, content, other copyrighted material, and/or open-source software which may be subject to certain “open source” or “free software” licenses. The use of such material is governed by their respective terms. To the extent any component of the Software may be offered under an open-source license, we will make that license available to you and the provisions of that license may expressly override some of these Software license terms. You agree not to copy, distribute, modify, reverse engineer, or decompile the Software, attempt to do so, or assist anyone in doing so. Sometimes we may suggest you use certain third-party software with our Services. If you use any third-party software, you are solely responsible for agreeing and complying with any third-party licensor’s terms when downloading and using that software.
Subject to your compliance with this Agreement, POCKYT grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use and display the Plugins on your Application solely for your own use as permitted by this Agreement. You are not licensed to use the Plugins for any other purpose, and, except for the limited license set forth herein, nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to grant you any right, title or interest in the Plugins.
The Plugin license is subject to the following restrictions on use: (a) you may not use the Plugins to facilitate the sale of access to POCKYT or any information therein without POCKYT’S prior written approval; (b) you may not obscure or disable any element of the Plugins; (c) your Developer Application title and other trademarks and logos must appear at least as prominent as POCKYT’s trademarks and logos in the Plugins; (d) you may not display the Plugins in any manner that implies partnership with, affiliation with, sponsorship, or endorsement by POCKYT; (e) you may not display the Plugin on any Application that disparages POCKYT or its services, infringes any POCKYT or third party intellectual property or other right, or violates any applicable law, self-regulatory rules, industry rules and governmental regulations (collectively, “Applicable Law”); (f) you may not place the Plugins on Applications that include content that is offensive, abusive, harassing, threatening, discriminatory, vulgar, pornographic, or otherwise inappropriate as determined by POCKYT in its sole discretion and (g) you may not commingle or supplement the Plugin with any other POCKYT data (e.g., data scraped from our website (whether that scraping was done by you or someone else)). Subject to the limited license granted to you above, the Plugins may not be copied, modified, deleted, reproduced, republished, posted, transmitted, sold, offered for sale, or redistributed without POCKYT’s prior written approval in each instance. You acknowledge and agree that POCKYT may monitor your Application for the purpose of confirming compliance with this Agreement.
POCKYT may provide tools and materials such as accounts and sample data as part of a sandbox environment to allow developers to use such tools and materials solely for internal testing of a Developer Application. All tools and materials are provided “AS IS” and may be removed or modified at any time. You agree that all use of such tools and materials will be in accordance with POCKYT’s policies which may change from time to time. POCKYT may post on the developer’s site and/or send an email to you with notices of any changes. You may use anonymous, non-live data only.

EU Personal Data
For purposes of this Agreement, “EU Personal Data” means “personal data” or “Personal Information,” as defined under Applicable Data Protection Laws—including, without limitation, any and all data (regardless of format) that can be used to directly or indirectly identify, contact or locate a natural person, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the financial, physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person—received or collected by POCKYT or you pertaining to POCKYT’s current, former or potential customers, employees, contractors, vendors or other agents who are located in the European Union.
Without limiting the foregoing, if you Process EU Personal Data, the following provisions apply:
- You will provide reasonable assistance to POCKYT where the type of Processing performed by you is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons and therefore requires a data protection impact assessment and/or prior consultation with the relevant data protection authorities;
- If you Process EU Personal Data outside of the EU, you will comply with all Applicable Data Protection Laws with regard to any cross-border transfers of EU Personal Data. This may include: (i) Processing EU Personal Data only in adequate jurisdictions as defined in Applicable Data Protection Laws, to the extent such Processing occurs in the United States; or (ii) adopting EU Binding Corporate Rules that cover the EU Personal Data that you Process; or (iii) entering into the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission.
If your Developer Application(s) exchange credit card or debit card data with POCKYT services, you must only distribute Developer Applications that (i) comply with local laws, credit card association and processor regulations, including but not limited to, all requirements set forth in the Payment Card Industry (“PCI”) Data Security Standard and the Payment Application Data Security Standards, as applicable (which can be found at https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/) for protecting cardholder data, and (ii) ensure secure data handling in compliance with all regulations, including industry standard secure access mechanisms such as SSL based HTTPS connections. POCKYT reserves the right to deny access to any of its credit card processing services to any Developer Application without notice for any reason. In the event that access is denied to POCKYT’s credit card services, you agree to continue treating cardholder data as confidential and protect cardholder data in compliance with local laws, credit card association and processor regulations including, but not limited to, all requirements set forth in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard for protecting cardholder data. Upon request, you will provide documentation evidencing your compliance with all applicable PCI requirements. If we reasonably believe that a security breach or compromise of data has occurred, we may require you, at your expense, to have a third-party auditor that is approved by us conduct a security audit of your systems and facilities and issue a report to be provided to us or our security providers.
These TOS constitute the entire agreement between you and POCKYT with respect to the subject matter of these TOS and supersedes and replaces any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these TOS. Other than as set forth in the “Indemnification by You” section above, these TOS creates no third-party beneficiary rights.
