1. Accepting the Terms

1.1 In order to use the Services, you must first agree to the Terms. You may not use the Services if you do not accept the Terms.

1.2 You can accept the Terms by:

(a) Clicking to accept or agree to the Terms, where this option is made available to you by Yamli in the user interface for any Service; or

(b) By actually using the Services. In this case, you understand and agree that Yamli will treat your use of the Services as acceptance of the Terms from that point onwards.

2. Service

2.1 Description of Service. The Service is a hosted transliteration service provided by Yamli’s proprietary transliteration software application through a Yamli application programming interface (the “API”) which allows you to provide the users of your website (‘Your Site”) with a method to type Arabic using a QWERTY keyboard or other English letter interface. Your use of the Service is subject to the limitations and conditions described below. The information accessible through the Service is referred to in this document as “the Content.”

2.2 Content in the Service. Content in the Service includes word transliterations. Your use of this Content is limited to displaying it to end users within the Service itself, and in the same manner, form, format, and appearance as it is provided by the Service. You may not, nor may you allow others to, copy, distribute, display, alter, or otherwise use the Content except as it is provided to you through the Service. Yamli reserves the sole right and discretion to determine whether your display of the Content through the Service is in conformance with this Section, and also reserves the right to terminate or suspend your access to the Content at any time for any reason, without notice.

2.3 Modifications. Yamli reserves the right to release subsequent versions of the API and Service and to require You to obtain and use the most recent version. Yamli may modify the Terms of Service at any time with or without notice, and You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service online at any time at http://www.yamli.com/api/tos/. If a modification is unacceptable to You, You may cancel the Service by removing the API from Your Site. If You continue to use the Service, You will be deemed to have accepted the modifications.

2.4 Prohibited Uses. Except where you have been specifically licensed by Yamli to do so, You may not use the Service with any products, systems, or applications which allow users to search content outside of Your Site.

You agree to use the Service only for purposes that are legal, proper and in accordance with these Terms of Service and any applicable policies or guidelines. By way of example, and not as a limitation, You agree that when using the Service, You will not:

  • Use Yamli services for any illegal or unauthorized purpose;

  • Remove any copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights notices contained in or on Yamli services;

  • Interfere with or disrupt Services or Yamli servers or networks connected to the Services, or disobey any requirements, procedures, policies or regulations of networks connected to Services;

  • Use any robot, spider, site search/retrieval application, or other device to retrieve or index any portion of the Services or collect information about users for any unauthorized purpose;

  • Submit content that falsely expresses or implies that such content is sponsored or endorsed by Yamli;

3. Advertising

3.1 Some of the Services are supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions. These advertisements may be targeted to the content of information stored on the Services, queries made through the Services or other information.

3.2 The manner, mode and extent of advertising by Yamli on the Services are subject to change without specific notice to you.

3.3 In consideration for Yamli granting you access to and use of the Services, you agree that Yamli may place such advertising on the Services.

Either party may terminate the Terms of Service at any time, for any reason, or for no reason including, but not limited to:

(A) you have breached any provision of the Terms (or have acted in manner which clearly shows that you do not intend to, or are unable to comply with the provisions of the Terms); or

(B) Yamli is required to do so by law (for example, where the provision of the Services to you is, or becomes, unlawful); or

(C) the partner with whom Yamli offered the Services to you has terminated its relationship with Yamli or ceased to offer the Services to you; or

(D) Yamli is transitioning to no longer providing the Services to users in the country in which you are resident or from which you use the service; or

(E) the provision of the Services to you by Yamli is, in Yamli’s opinion, no longer commercially viable; or

If You desire to terminate the Terms of Service, You must remove the API from Your Site.

10.2 Rejection of Application Yamli shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to reject any request to use the Service at any time and for any reason, and such rejection shall render null and void the Terms of Service between You and Yamli. Yamli shall not be liable to You for damages of any sort resulting from its decision to reject such a request.

11.1 The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and Yamli and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which Yamli may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and Yamli in relation to the Services.

11.2 You agree that Yamli may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Service.

11.3 You agree that if Yamli does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which Yamli has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Yamli’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Yamli.

11.4 If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.

11.5 You acknowledge and agree that each member of the group of companies of which Yamli is the parent shall be third party beneficiaries to the Terms and that such other companies shall be entitled to directly enforce, and rely upon, any provision of the Terms which confers a benefit on (or rights in favor of) them. Other than this, no other person or company shall be third party beneficiaries to the Terms.

11.6 The Terms, and your relationship with Yamli under the Terms, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Massachusetts without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. You and Yamli agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Middlesex, Massachusetts to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that Yamli shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
