To access the Sentinel API, you will first need to register your app. To register, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. When you've done that, we'll issue you with a client ID and client secret. Your client ID is required for all calls to the Sentinel API.
Make sure you look after your client secret. If your client secret is lost or stolen, or if you believe that your client secret has been used without your permission, you'll need to tell us immediately.
We hereby grant to you a revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferrable license to access and use the Sentinel API solely to facilitate your development of applications that interface with the Services in accordance with these API Terms of Service and the Sentinel API Documentation (each such application, an “Application”).
We may modify or update the Sentinel API from time to time. We will try to ensure, as far as possible, that future version(s) of the Sentinel API are backwards compatible with at least the most recent previous version, but cannot guarantee that this will always be possible. You should adapt your app to use the most up-to-date version of the Sentinel API promptly following release by Sentinel.
You must not use the Sentinel API, or any data or information associated with the users accounts on the Sentinel platform (“User Content”) accessible via the Sentinel API, for any of the following purposes:
Your app must not include file-save functionality, or otherwise designed to cache, download or persistently store any User Content. Your app may employ session-based caching, but only to the extent reasonably necessary for the operation of your app during that session, and any cached content must cease to be available, accessible or playable within your app at the end of that session. Except for session-based caching referred to above, your app must not offer offline access to any User Content. Unless otherwise permitted by applicable law and/or agreed with the relevant user, when a user revokes access to their Sentinel account, you must ensure that all Personal Data and User Content pertaining to that user is deleted from your app, networks, systems and servers as soon as reasonably possible. If you stop using the Sentinel API altogether or if your API access is revoked, you'll need to delete all User Content and Personal Data in the same way.
Only the following commercial uses are acceptable:
The following commercial uses are not acceptable (this is not an exhaustive list):
Notwithstanding the above, Sentinel shall have the sole right to determine whether or not an app is acceptable, and we reserve the right to revoke API access for any app that we determine is not providing added benefit to Sentinel users and/or is not in the best interests of Sentinel or our users.
Access to the Sentinel API is NOT provided free of charge. The price depends on how the API is used and commercialized. Sentinel reserves the right to change the price at any point in the future.
We reserve the right, at our discretion, to impose restrictions and limitations on the number and frequency of calls made by your app to the Sentinel API. You must not attempt to circumvent any restrictions or limitations that we impose. Presently, API calls are limited to 500 per app per day. The limit is soft, meaning that we won’t block you for short term excess. If you anticipate needing more than 500 requests per day for your project, please contact us to request an increase.
When displaying or streaming User Content, you must ensure that your app credits Sentinel as the source of that User Content.
We may occasionally provide buttons, logos and other branding elements featuring certain Sentinel Marks for use within your app, including for the purposes of some of the attributions required above. You can use these resources as we direct, but mustn't make any changes or modifications.
You must not use any Sentinel Marks, or any confusingly similar mark, as the name or part of the name of your app (for example, "Sentineleriffic"), or as part of any logo, icon or branding for your app.
Generally, you must not use any Sentinel Marks in any advertising, promotional or marketing materials for your app. However, you may use the name "Sentinel" or “Sentinel Marine solutions” in a written description of your app in order to describe the fact that your app connects to Sentinel via the Sentinel API but not in the name of your app. If you do this, you must make sure that "Sentinel" always appears either in lower case with the "S" capitalized ("Sentinel"), or in uppercase ("SENTINEL"). You must not use the name in any way that takes unfair advantage of our goodwill or reputation in the Sentinel Marks, and you must not make any suggestion, directly or indirectly, that your app is an official Sentinel app or is endorsed by Sentinel in any way.
You must not operate your app from any domain that includes the word "Sentinel" or any obvious derivation or misspelling of the word "Sentinel", or from any domain that is likely to cause an end user to believe that your app originates from, or is endorsed by Sentinel.
If we amend or update any of the Sentinel Marks or any of the Resources mentioned above, we reserve the right to require you to use the updated versions, and you shall commence using those updated versions in place of the previous versions promptly following any notification from us to that effect (and in the case of software Applications, with effect from your next version release).
You must not issue any press release or similar public announcement regarding your app that makes any reference to Sentinel (except as permitted in the "Promoting Your App" section above) without our prior written consent. If we choose to feature your app in a newsletter or other marketing material (which we don't guarantee to do), you agree that we may use the name of your company and/or the name and logo of your app for this purpose. We may also use your company and app name and logo in presentations, reports, case studies, marketing materials and similar documentation for as long as you make use of the Sentinel API.
