This website, developer.tollsmart.com (the "site"), is owned and operated by Tollsmart, LLC and our affiliates ("Tollsmart", "we" or “us”).

Please read them carefully. If you don’t agree to these Terms, you may not use the Services.
In order to use our Services, you must register for a Tollsmart Developer 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.
You must be 18 years or older to use the Services. By registering as a user or providing personal information on the site, you represent that you are at least 18 years old.
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 online services and online, desktop, or mobile applications
As used in these Terms, “you may not” shall mean “you may not, and may not permit any third party to”.
Unless stated otherwise below:
• you may not cache, store, or export any toll content from the Services
• you may not redistribute any toll content from the Services, including from a cache, by proxying, or by using a screenshot or other static image, instead of directly accessing via our APIs
• you may not resell or re-syndicate toll content from the Services to any third party (e.g., act as a reseller or service bureau), except to distribute the toll content your end users as an integrated part of your application
We may choose to make available to you products and services that are in beta or otherwise not generally available (“Evaluation Products”). By accessing such Evaluation Products, you agree to only use them for internal evaluation or testing purposes.
The "Tollsmart APIs" means the Toll service APIs described in our documentation.
You may cache Map Assets on end-user devices (e.g., laptops, smartphones, or tablets) for offline use for up to 30 days, but each device must populate its cache using direct requests to the Tollsmart APIs and content from a cache may only be consumed by a single end user.
You may not use results from the Tollsmart APIs (a) to develop a general database of toll information or (b) to develop or test another tolling application or API.
For all mobile applications that use Tollsmart API Services, you must:
• Limit use of your app to users at least 13 years of age or disable information sharing for users younger than 13.
• Obtain your users' affirmative express consent before you access their location (the automatic notifications in iOS and Android suffice).
• Allow users to opt out of location data sharing.
• Comply with any additional local requirements related to information access or sharing.
