In order to access or utilise the Qype API, You must first register with the Qype Site in order to receive a valid API key ("Qype API Key"). All queries sent to the Qype API requesting data must reference your valid Qype API Key. You agree to keep your Qype API Key confidential and not to share it with any third party.
By using the Qype API, You expressly agree:
Qype reserves the right to impose on You a limitation on the number of characters which should be displayed for Qype Content (especially user reviews). In such cases, You agree to add a "(...more)" link taking the user to the Qype Content's original source on the Qype website.
You agree that, in accordance and strict conformity with the Qype Logo and Branding Guidelines, You will display the Qype Brand Features, together with text-based hyperlinks to the Qype Site, on any and all pages of your website, mobile applications, widgets and/or other electronic media incorporating, utilising or displaying (as applicable) the Qype API and/or any Qype Content.
All hyperlinks to the Qype Site must connect users directly to the Qype Site. You may not minimize, remove or otherwise inhibit the full and complete display of the Qype Site accessed by clicking on such hyperlinks. You may not cause the Qype Site to be displayed in any pop-up, pop-under, exit windows, expanding buttons or animated windows or to be framed in any way; provided that You shall be allowed to spawn a new, full-sized browser window when a user clicks on the hyperlink to the Qype Site and to display the Qype Site in such window.
As between Qype and You, the Qype API, the Qype Brand Features and any and all Qype Content (subject to the Qype Terms of Service), and all intellectual property rights contained in any of the foregoing, are and shall at all times remain the sole and exclusive property of Qype and are protected by applicable intellectual property laws and treaties.

The laws of the Federal Republic of Germany apply to all disputes which result in the context of the use of the Qype service, including legal rights and obligations, the effectiveness of the contract and claims of tort.
The legal domicile for all aforementioned disputes is Hamburg. If the residential location or business location of the contractual partner of Qype is situated outside the European Union, then all aforementioned disputes will be definitively decided according to the arbitration code of the Hamburg chamber of commerce under exclusion of the due legal process.
If you are using or intending to use the Qype API on behalf of an employer or other principal, you hereby represent and warrant that you are authorised to enter into this Agreement on your principal's behalf and that this Agreement is fully binding upon such principal.
