Wit.AI, Inc. ("Wit", "we", "our", or "us") provides an online software platform that enables developers to build and deploy natural language interfaces for devices and software applications (the "Wit Platform").
These API Terms of Service (these "Terms" or the "Agreement") include the legal terms that we require all developers to accept and implement as a condition of accessing our website located at https://wit.ai (the "Website") and/or accessing or using the application programming interfaces provided on or in connection with the Wit Platform ("API(s)"), including any documentation, materials, code, data (such as Expressions, Intents, and Entities, each as defined below), and other information or materials made available to you by Wit on or in connection with the APIs (collectively, "Wit Content") to develop natural language interfaces for use in connection with your products or devices ("Devices") and/or your software applications ("Application(s)").
The Wit Platform includes a project repository designed to allow you to access, input, and store data in connection with your language interface development project ("Wit App(s)"). Data contained in each Wit App may include "Expressions", "Intents", and "Entities". An "Expression" is an actual utterance or phrase spoken by an individual; an "Intent" is the command or desired action that the speaker of the Expression would like the Device or Application to perform; and an "Entity" is a value or subset of data associated with the Intent. For more information on Expressions, Intents, and Entities, please see the online documentation.

THESE TERMS CONTAIN A MANDATORY INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.

Wit reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our users.

If you do not agree to any of these Terms or any future Terms of Service, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Wit Content or Wit Platform.
These Terms shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of California, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms and conditions of these Terms shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Santa Clara County, California for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that Santa Clara County, California is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM WIT. For any dispute with Wit, you agree to first contact us at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that Wit has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, "Claims"), by binding arbitration by JAMS, Inc. ("JAMS"), under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Santa Clara County, California, unless you and Wit agree otherwise. If you are using the Wit Content or Wit Platform for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys' fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Wit Content or Wit Platform for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney's fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Wit from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights.
WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE WIT CONTENT OR WIT PLATFORM FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES' INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND WIT ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
These Terms control the relationship between Wit and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights. If the Wit Content or Wit Platform is licensed to the United States government or any agency thereof, then the Wit Content and Wit Platform will be deemed to be "commercial computer software" and "commercial computer software documentation," respectively, pursuant to DFARS Section 227.7202 and FAR Section 12.212, as applicable. Any use, reproduction, release, performance, display or disclosure of the Wit Content or Wit Platform and any accompanying documentation by the U.S. Government will be governed solely by the terms and conditions of these Terms and is prohibited except to the extent expressly permitted by the terms and conditions of these Terms. The Wit Content and Wit Platform originate in the United States, and are subject to United States export laws and regulations. The Wit Content and Wit Platform may not be exported or re-exported to certain countries or those persons or entities prohibited from receiving exports from the United States. In addition, the Wit Content and Wit Platform may be subject to the import and export laws of other countries. You agree to comply with all United States and foreign laws related to use of the Wit Content and the Wit Platform. No waiver of any term of these Terms shall constitute a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Wit's failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Wit without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void. These Terms, together with the Addendum, any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Wit in connection with the Wit Content or Wit Platform, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Wit concerning the Wit Content and Wit Platform. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect, except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
