TERMS OF USE AGREEMENT

Last Revised April 14, 2015

PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY! IT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS, AS WELL AS LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS THAT MAY APPLY TO YOU IF YOU REGISTER, PARTICIPATE IN AND/OR USE THE ORAL-B DEVELOPER PROGRAM.

The following Terms of Use Agreement governs use of the Oral-B Web Application Programming Interface ("API"), Oral-B Software Development Kit ("SDK"), scripts, buttons, widgets, app keys, access tokens, and developer web pages and documentation collectively referred to as the Oral-B Developer Program ("Program"), as provided by Procter & Gamble Productions, Inc. ("P&G," "we," or "our"), by all those who access the Program, including without limitation persons and representatives of entities, whether such representatives are persons or digital engines of any kind that crawl, index, scrape, copy, store, or transmit digital content (collectively, "you" or "your").

These Terms of Use, together with any other disclosures, updates, rules, postings, bulletins, or other terms listed or communicated on or through the Program (collectively, the "Agreement"), constitutes a legal and binding agreement between you and P&G. By using or registering on any aspect of the Program, you agree to comply with all terms set forth in the Agreement. If you cannot agree with these terms, please do not register for, participate in, or use the Program. If you are agreeing to this Agreement for use of the Program by an organization, you are agreeing to this Agreement on behalf of that organization. You must have the authority to bind that organization to this Agreement otherwise you must not sign up for the Program. In that case, "you" or "your" will refer to that organization.

ABOUT: The Oral-B SDK gives you access to core features when connecting the Oral-B toothbrush to mobile applications. Possibilities for reading toothbrush data include designing fun experiences (or warnings) to encourage healthy brushing activities. The Oral-B Web API allows you to fetch brushing data ranging from session frequency and duration to activity stats, achievement and more.

PRIVACY: Trust is a cornerstone of our corporate mission, and the success of our business depends on it. P&G is committed to maintaining your trust by protecting personal information we collect about you, our consumers. Any personally identifiable information collected from you is subject to the guidelines established in P&G's Privacy Policy. Please refer to this link for P&G’s Privacy Policy. The P&G Privacy Policy is hereby incorporated into and made a part of this Agreement.

The Program collects the information you provide when you register for the Program. The Program may collect certain information automatically. This information includes but is not limited the IP address of your device, your operating system, and information about how you use the Program.

You agree to publish and abide by a privacy policy explaining how you collect, store, use, and/or transfer any information that may be used, either alone or together with other information, to identify an individual user ("Personally Identifiable Information" or "PII").

If your use of the Program requires or will likely result in the provision of PII directly to P&G, you agree to obtain all necessary consents and authorizations from the applicable users to provide such PII to P&G. We will treat PII obtained from you through your use of the Program in accordance with the above Privacy Policy.

Unless otherwise permitted by applicable law and/or agreement with the user, if a user revokes access to their account, you must ensure that all PII pertaining to that user is deleted from your services and related networks, systems and servers as soon as reasonably possible. If you stop using the Program altogether or if your Program access is revoked, you must delete all PII in the same way.

ELIGIBILITY: Your participation is completely voluntary. You represent and warrant that all information you submit is truthful and accurate. You agree to maintain the accuracy of such information. You further represent and warrant that you are eighteen (18) years of age or older and have the capacity to enter into a binding contract. Your use of the Program shall not violate any applicable local, state, federal, or international laws or regulations.

ACCOUNT AND REGISTRATION: Only registered developers are allowed to access and communicate with the Oral-B toothbrush. Therefore you have to register an application on the developer portal and obtain an App ID and App Key. Both have to be included in the 3rd party application and provided to the Oral-B SDK when using it. You will need to register each of your applications that use the Program with us. We reserve the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content in our sole discretion.

FEES: Access to and use of the Program is currently provided at no charge. However, we reserve the right to charge for access and/or use of the Program in the future at our discretion. We will provide you with notice in the event we decide to start charging for use.

DISPLAY: You may include advertisements in your services near your visual implementation of the Program (e.g., banner ads above or below), but you must ensure clear separation between P&G content and any advertisements. Your advertisements should not be displayed in any manner that suggests approval or endorsement by P&G.

USAGE DATA: We may monitor your use of the Program to improve the Program and to ensure compliance with this Agreement. You agree that P&G may collect certain use data and information related to your use of the Program in connection with your services ("Usage Data"), and that P&G may use such Usage Data for any business purpose, internal or external, including, without limitation, providing enhancements to the Program, providing user support, or otherwise.

PUBLICITY: You agree that P&G may use your company, organization, or product name and/or logo in presentations, marketing materials, customer lists, financial reports, website listings of customers, research and marketing case studies and other marketing-related activities. You may not issue any public announcement regarding your use of the Program which suggests partnership with P&G without P&G's prior review and written approval, at P&G's sole discretion.
