Responsible for all contents (§ 55 para 2 RStV):
This website, bliq.ai (the “site”), is owned and operated by AIPARK GmbH (“Bliq“, “we” or “us”). By using the site, services provided on the site or content we make available to you through the services (collectively, “services“), you agree to be bound by the following Terms of Service, as updated occasionally (collectively, the “Terms“). Please read them carefully. If you don’t agree to these Terms, you may not use the services.
In order to use most services, you must register for an Bliq account. When you use our application program interfaces (APIs), each request to an API must include one of your account’s unique API keys.
Please carefully guard the security of your account and monitor use of your API keys. You are responsible for all use of the services under your account, whether or not authorized, including any use of your API keys. At our discretion, we may make limited exceptions to this policy for unauthorized use of your account if you notify us of the problem promptly.
If you are entering into this agreement on behalf of your company or another legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms, in which case “you” will mean the entity you represent.
Subject to these Terms, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license and right to:
- Use the services to develop online services and online, desktop, or mobile applications;
- Make the services available to end-users in connection with their use of your publicly available online services and publicly available online, desktop, or mobile applications
The “Bliq APIs” means all APIs provided by Bliq, independent from the contents served. You must access and use opening hours, prices, parking predictions, crowdsensing events, real-time availability feeds and electric vehicle charging stations that we provide (collectively “Parking Data”) only using our APIs.
You may temporarily cache Parking Data on end-user devices (e.g. laptops, smartphones, or tablets) for offline use, but each device must populate its cache using direct requests to the Bliq APIs and content from a cache may only be consumed by a single end-user. On mobile devices, you may only cache up to the limits set in the applicable Bliq SDK, and you may not circumvent or change those limits. You may not resell or redistribute Parking Data, including from a cache, by proxying, or by using a screenshot or other static image instead of accessing Map Assets through the Bliq APIs. You may not scrape or download data for any purpose other than temporary offline caching on a single end-user’s device. You may only query the Bliq APIs in response to human user queries and human app interactions; you may not perform bulk or automated queries.
You may not use results from the Bliq APIs
- to develop a database of parking spots for any neighborhood, city, state, country, or other such geographic region, or to develop any other general purpose digital map database;
- to develop or test another Parking Data application or API;
- in connection with navigation products preinstalled or integrated into automobiles by auto manufacturers, auto electronic component manufacturers or auto system integrators; or
Upon written notice to you, we may audit your use of the Bliq API to ensure it is in compliance with this section. The terms of this section are intended for the direct benefit of our third-party suppliers and may also be enforced directly by those suppliers.
If you need additional rights, please contact us.
Bliq APIs used on mobile devices
For all mobile applications that use Bliq services, you must:
- Obtain your users’ affirmative express consent before you access their location (the automatic notifications in iOS and Android suffice).
- Comply with any additional local requirements related to information access or sharing.
- Not interfere with or limit the data that the Bliq Mobile SDK sends to us, whether by modifying the SDK or by other means, except as otherwise required by the Terms.
- Not attempt to identify specific individuals, vehicles, or entities.
End-users and notification
You may not allow your end-users or other third parties to use the services in any way that would be a violation of these Terms if done by you, and you agree to take reasonable efforts to prevent such use. You agree to promptly notify Bliq in writing if you become aware of any misappropriation or unauthorized use of the services.
In addition to the requirements above, you agree to adhere to the policies posted on this site in conjunction with the services, including accompanying documentation. Those policies are incorporated by reference into these Terms.
Charges and payment
Some of the services require payment. We may charge your credit card on an ongoing basis in advance of providing services or as needed for prepayments for your subscription fee, any applicable sales taxes, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of Bliq services. The subscription fee is billed in full on the first day of each billing period, unless and until you cancel your subscription.
You retain ownership of all content that you contribute to the services via the Bliq APIs, excluding any content that you receive from Bliq (“Your Content“).
Limited to the purpose of hosting Your Content so that we can provide the services to you, you hereby grant Bliq a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up, transferable and sublicensable right and license to use, copy, cache, publish, display, distribute, modify, create derivative works, and store Your Content and to allow others to do so. This right and license enables Bliq to host and mirror your content on its distributed platform. You warrant, represent and agree that you have the right to grant Bliq these rights.
On termination of your account, Bliq will make reasonable efforts to promptly remove from the site and cease use of Your Content; however, you recognize and agree that caching of or references to the content may not be immediately removed.
Our content and third-party content
Other than Your Content, all content displayed on the site or accessible through the services, including text, images, maps, software or source code, are the property of Bliq and/or third parties and are protected by German and international intellectual property laws. Logos and product names appearing on or in connection with the services are proprietary to Bliq or our licensors. You may not remove any proprietary notices or product identification labels from the services.
We’re proud to have you as a customer. During the term of this agreement, you hereby grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid-up, transferable and sublicensable license to use your trademarks, service marks, and logos for the purpose of identifying you as a Bliq customer to promote and market our services. But if you prefer we not use your logo or name in a particular way, just let us know, and we will respect that.
Account cancellation or suspension
We don’t want you to leave, but you may cancel at any time. However, we do not give refunds for unused time if you cancel during the middle of a billing cycle.
If you breach any of these Terms, we may immediately without notice cancel or suspend your account and the limited license granted to you hereunder automatically terminates, without notice to you. Upon termination of the limited license, you agree to immediately destroy any materials downloaded from the services. In addition, Bliq may cancel or suspend your account for any reason by providing you 30 days’ advance notice.
Upon cancellation or suspension, your right to use the services will stop immediately. You may not have access to data that you stored on the site after we cancel or suspend your account. You are responsible for backing up data that you use with the services.
Changes to services or terms
We may change the features and functions of the services, including APIs. It is your responsibility to ensure that calls or requests you makes to the services are compatible with then-current Bliq APIs. We attempt to avoid changes to our APIs that are not backwards compatible, but such changes may occasionally be required. If that happens, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you prior to deploying the changes.
