This document governs the terms under which you may access and use the application programming interface that is made available on this website (the "API"), and the data transmitted through the API (the "MenuMania Content"). This document incorporates the terms of the following additional documents, including all future amendments or modifications thereto (collectively, and together with this document, the "API Agreement"):
By accessing or using the API or MenuMania Content, you agree to be bound by the API Agreement. If you access or use the API or MenuMania Content on behalf of a company, principal or other entity, you represent that you have authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to the API Agreement and that it is fully binding upon them. In such case, the term "you" will refer to such entity and its affiliates. If you do not have authority, or if you do not agree with the terms of the API Agreement, you may not access or use the API or MenuMania Content. You should read and keep a copy of each component of the API Agreement for your records. In the event of a conflict among them, the terms of this document will control.
The API is made available by Menu Mania Ltd ("MenuMania") to enable you to access valuable local information and present it on your website or mobile properties. With this in mind, MenuMania reserves the right to continually review and evaluate all uses of the API, including determining that a particular usage would be more competitive in nature than complementary to MenuMania's own services.
MenuMania reserves the right to modify or revise the API Agreement at any time. You should visit this website
periodically to review the documents comprising the API Agreement and check for updates.
Your continued use of the API after the effective date of any such changes will constitute your acceptance
of and agreement to such changes.
If YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND TO ANY NEW TERMS, YOU MUST TERMINATE THE API AGREEMENT BY IMMEDIATELY CEASING USE OF THE API.
In order to access or use the API, you must first register for and receive a valid MenuMania Web Service I.D. ("MMWSID").
You are only allowed to register for and use one MMWSID, unless otherwise permitted by MenuMania in writing, including via email.
All queries sent to the API requesting data must reference your valid MMWSID.
You agree to keep your MMWSID confidential and not to share it with any third party.
Subject to the terms set forth in the Display Requirements and elsewhere in the API Agreement, MenuMania grants you a non-exclusive, revocable, non-sublicensable, non-transferable license to (i) access and use the API to receive the MenuMania Content; (ii) display the MenuMania Content on your website or internet-connected application for mobile devices ("Your Site"); and (iii) reproduce and display the MenuMania name and logo (the "MenuMania Brand Features") solely in order to comply with the Display Requirements.
You may not use the API, MenuMania Content, or MenuMania Brand Features for any other purpose without MenuMania's prior written consent. These license rights are further limited by the restrictions set forth elsewhere in the API Agreement, and all rights not expressly granted to you hereunder are reserved by MenuMania. You acknowledge and agree that MenuMania may monitor Your Site in order to confirm compliance with the API Agreement.
You agree that you will remove from display and destroy any MenuMania Content within twenty-four (24) hours upon email or other written request from MenuMania.
If applicable, for each independent section on your Site that displays the aggregate or individual MenuMania star ratings, you agree to (i) place a small MenuMania logo next to at least the first instance of the aggregate or individual review star ratings, and (ii) place either the word "MenuMania" in letters or a small MenuMania logo next to the aggregate or individual MenuMania star ratings for all other MenuMania reviews in the independent section.
If applicable, for each business listing or individual review display above must have a link to the full review on the applicable MenuMania business profile page; either as (i) a "...read more" if there is a review snippet or (ii) as a clickable MenuMania logo or the word "MenuMania" if there is not a review snippet.
You agree that MenuMania may exercise its rights to pre-approve any screenshots of your implementation of the MenuMania API and branding prior to launch and you agree that your implementation will remain in substantial compliance with any such approved screenshots throughout the Term of your API usage.
You agree that you will not, and will not assist or enable others to:
- cache, record, pre-fetch, or otherwise store any portion of the MenuMania Content, or attempt or provide a means to execute any "bulk download" operations;
- modify the MenuMania Content, or use it to update or create your own database of restaurant listing information;
- create or disclose metrics about, or perform any statistical analysis of, the API or MenuMania Content;
- use the API on behalf of any third party;

- use the API, MenuMania Content or MenuMania Brand Features in a manner that could reasonably be interpreted to suggest that MenuMania is the author or entity that is responsible, in whole or in part, for the creation or development of any MenuMania Content or that such MenuMania Content represents the views of MenuMania;
- use the API or MenuMania Content in connection with or to promote any products, services or materials that constitute, promote or are used primarily for the purpose of dealing in: spyware, adware and/or other malicious programs or code; counterfeit goods and/or items subject to NZ embargo; unsolicited mass distributions of e-mail ("spam"), actions intended to mislead search engines into ranking some pages higher than they would otherwise deserve ("web spam") multilevel marketing proposals, direct marketing and/or telemarketing activities; hate materials; libellous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive or otherwise offensive content; prostitution, body parts and/or bodily fluids; stolen products and/or items used for theft; hacking/surveillance/interception/descrambling equipment; fireworks, explosives and/or other hazardous materials; gambling; professional services regulated by state licensing regimes; and/or non-transferable items such as airline tickets, event tickets, weapons and/or weapons accessories;
6. Proprietary Rights
As between you and MenuMania, the API, MenuMania Content, MenuMania Brand Features,
and all intellectual property rights contained in the foregoing, are and will at all times remain the sole
and exclusive property of MenuMania and are protected by applicable intellectual property laws and treaties
(whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist.).
You agree that at no time during or after the termination of the API Agreement will you attempt to register
any trademarks (including domain names) that are confusingly similar in any way to those of MenuMania Brand Features or MenuMania Content.
MenuMania reserves the right, in its sole discretion (for any reason or for no reason) and at any time without
notice to you, to change, suspend or discontinue the API and/or suspend or terminate your rights under
the API Agreement to access, use and/or display (as applicable) the API, MenuMania Brand Features and/or any MenuMania Content.
Any termination of the API Agreement will also immediately terminate the licenses granted to you hereunder.
Such change, suspension or termination of the API may cause your existing services using the API
to stop functioning properly. Upon any termination of the API Agreement, you will promptly delete and
remove all calls to the API from all web pages, scripts, widgets, applications, and other software
in your possession or under your control; promptly destroy and remove from all computers, hard drives,
networks and other storage media all copies of the API, MenuMania Brand Features and/or any MenuMania Content;
and you will promptly certify in writing to MenuMania that such actions have been taken.
You agree that your use of the API is at your own risk and you agree to hold harmless,
defend (subject to MenuMania's right to participate with counsel it selects) and indemnify MenuMania and
its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees and suppliers from and against any and all claims,
damages, liabilities, costs and fees (including reasonable attorneys' fee) arising from, or in any
way related to (i) you or your Users' use or implementation of the API or any MenuMania Content obtained from
the API or (ii) any content on Your Site, including any statements, representations or warranties related to MenuMania. You will not agree to any settlement that imposes any obligation on MenuMania without MenuMania's prior consent.
9. No Warranties; No Support
THE API, MENUMANIA BRAND FEATURES AND MENUMANIA CONTENT ARE PROVIDED "AS IS", "WITH ALL FAULTS" AND "AS
AVAILABLE" WITHOUT WARRANTY, OF ANY KIND AND AT YOUR SOLE RISK. EXCEPT TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT REQUIRED BY
APPLICABLE LAW, MENUMANIA DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, CONDITIONS, AND DUTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS,
IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, REGARDING THE API, MENUMANIA BRAND FEATURES AND ANY MENUMANIA CONTENT, INCLUDING,
WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, ACCURACY, RESULTS OF USE, RELIABILITY,
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, INTERFERENCE WITH QUIET ENJOYMENT AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS.
FURTHER, MENUMANIA DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY THAT YOUR USE OF THE API WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE,
TIMELY OR ERROR FREE. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE API AGREEMENT DOES NOT
ENTITLE YOU TO ANY SUPPORT FOR THE API. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR IN WRITING,
OBTAINED BY YOU FROM MENUMANIA WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THE API AGREEMENT.
10. Limitation of Liability
THE API IS BEING PROVIDED FREE OF CHARGE. ACCORDINGLY, YOU AGREE THAT MENUMANIA SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY
ARISING FROM OR BASED ON YOUR USE OF THE API. REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN FAILS OF
ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OR OTHERWISE, AND EXCEPT FOR BODILY INJURY, IN NO EVENT SHALL MENUMANIA OR
ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES AND SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY
THIRD PARTY UNDER ANY TORT, CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY
FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST OR CORRUPTED DATA, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS,
OR OTHER SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR
INABILITY TO USE THE API, EVEN IF MENUMANIA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES
AND WHETHER OR NOT SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES ARE FORESEEABLE. ANY CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE API AGREEMENT
MUST BE BROUGHT WITHIN (1) YEAR AFTER THE OCCURRENCE OF THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM. IF SUCH CLAIM
IS NOT FILED, THEN THAT CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED. THIS APPLIES TO YOU AND YOUR SUCCESSORS,
AND TO MENUMANIA AND ITS SUCCESSORS. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, MENUMANIA'S MAXIMUM LIABILITY
UNDER THIS API AGREEMENT SHALL NOT, IN ANY EVENT, EXCEED NZ$50.00.
11. Limited Relationship
MenuMania and you are, and will remain, independent contractors, and nothing in the API Agreement will be
construed as creating an employer-employee relationship, partnership or joint venture.
Although you are permitted to publicise your use of the API, you agree not to make any other statements,
without the prior written consent of MenuMania, implying a different kind of relationship between you and MenuMania,
including any implied endorsement of your content, products, or services by MenuMania.
You do not have any authority of any kind to bind MenuMania in any respect whatsoever.
12. Choice of Law and Arbitration
(a) Any claim, controversy or dispute arising out of or relating to the API Agreement ("Claim") will be governed by New Zealand law consistent with the NZ Arbitration Act without regard to conflict of law provisions or giving effect to any principles that may provide for the application of the laws of another jurisdiction.
(b) All Claims must be exclusively resolved and settled by final and binding arbitration administered by and in accordance with the rules of the Arbitrators' and Mediators' Institute of New Zealand ("AMINZ") and before a single arbitrator who is a member of the AMINZ. Arbitrations will be held in Auckland but the parties may choose for themselves whether to appear in person, by phone, or through the submission of documents. The arbitrator will issue a ruling in writing, and will detail all findings of fact and law upon which the ruling was made. The arbitrator will not have the power to commit errors of law or legal reasoning, and the ruling may be vacated or corrected on appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction for such errors. The arbitrator's ruling will otherwise be final and binding on all parties, and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any dispute as to the enforceability of this arbitration provision or its applicability to a specific Claim shall be adjudicated by a state court located within Auckland ("Court"), and not by an arbitrator.
(c) YOU AND MENUMANIA AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN THEIR RESPECTIVE INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and MenuMania agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If a Claim implicates this subsection (c), and this subsection (c) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal by a Court, such Claim must be adjudicated by a Court and not by an arbitrator.
The API Agreement encompasses the entire agreement between you and MenuMania regarding the subject matter discussed therein. The failure of MenuMania to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the API Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein will not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of the API Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be replaced with terms that most closely match the intent of the provision that is not enforceable to the minimum extent necessary so that the remaining API Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. The API Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sublicensable, in whole or in part, by you except with MenuMania's prior written consent. MenuMania may assign the API Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice to you. Any attempt to do so is void. The section titles in the API Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
Sections 6, 8, 9, 10, 12 and this 14 will survive any expiration or termination of this API Agreement for any reason.
