You may not use the Developer Tools and may not accept these Terms if you are a person barred from using or receiving the Developer Tools under the applicable laws of the United States or other countries including the country in which you are resident or from which you use the Developer Tools.
Use of Jack Henry Developer Tools
To access the Developer Tools, you may be required to provide certain information as part of the registration process or as part of your continued use of the Developer Tools. Any registration information you give to Jack Henry must be accurate and up to date, and you will inform us of any updates within a reasonable time.
You will use the Developer tools and operate your websites and applications which access the Developer Tools (“Your Applications”) only as permitted by applicable law, regulation, and third-party rights. You will require your end users to comply with all applicable law, regulation, and third-party rights. You will not use the Developer Tools to encourage or promote illegal activity or violation of third-party rights. You will not violate any other terms of service with Jack Henry.
You will only access (or attempt to access) an API by the means described in the documentation of that API. If Jack Henry assigns you developer credentials, you must use them with the applicable Developer Tools. You will not misrepresent or mask either your identity or Your Application's identity when using the Developer Tools or developer accounts.
Your use of the Developer Tools is subject to certain limitations on access, calls and use as set forth in these Terms and other documentation. Jack Henry sets and enforces such limitations in our sole discretion. If Jack Henry believes you have attempted to exceed or circumvent these limitations, your ability to use the Developer Tools may be temporarily or permanently blocked. If you would like to use any Developer Tool beyond these limits, you must obtain Jack Henry's express written consent. Jack Henry may decline such request or condition acceptance on your agreement to additional terms and/or charges for that use.
Open Source Software
Some of the software required by or included in our Developer Tools may be offered under an open source license. Open source software licenses constitute separate written agreements. For certain Developer Tools, open source software is listed in the documentation. To the limited extent the open source software license expressly supersedes the Terms, the open source license instead sets forth your agreement with Jack Henry for the applicable open source software.
If you provide feedback or suggestions about our Developer Tools, then we (and those we allow) may use such information without obligation to you. By submitting feedback and suggestions, you grant a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, and royalty-free license to any intellectual property rights you may have in your feedback and suggestions to Jack Henry to use to improve any Jack Henry products or services. You acknowledge that submission of feedback and suggestions is voluntary and Jack Henry may consider or is developing technology that is the same or similar to your feedback or suggestions.
The Terms are non-exclusive. You acknowledge that Jack Henry may develop products or services that may compete with your websites and applications (“Your Applications”) or any other products or services.
Jack Henry may update the Developer Tools at any time and may discontinue support for previous versions of the Developer Tools at Jack Henry’s sole discretion. Jack Henry will make reasonable efforts to notify you when a version of the Developer Tools will no longer be supported.
Your Applications and Monitoring
You agree to monitor the use of the Your Applications for any activity that violates applicable laws, rules, and regulations or any terms and conditions of this Agreement, including any fraudulent, inappropriate, or potentially harmful behavior, and promptly restrict any offending users of Your Applications from further use of Your Applications. You agree to provide a resource for users of Your Applications to report abuse of Your Applications. As between you and us, you are responsible for all acts and omissions of your end users in connection with Your Application and their use of the Developer Tool, if any. You agree that you are solely responsible for posting any privacy notices and obtaining any consents from your end users required under applicable laws, rules, and regulations for their use of Your Applications.
YOU AGREE THAT JACK HENRY MAY MONITOR USE OF THE DEVELOPER TOOLS TO ENSURE QUALITY, IMPROVE JACK HENRY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, AND VERIFY YOUR COMPLIANCE WITH THE TERMS. This monitoring may include Jack Henry accessing and using Your Application, for example to identify security issues that could affect Jack Henry or its users. You will not interfere with this monitoring. Jack Henry may use any technical means to overcome such interference. Jack Henry may suspend access to the Developer Tools by you or Your Application without notice if we reasonably believe that you are in violation of the Terms.
Jack Henry does not acquire ownership in Your Applications, and by using our Developer Tools, you do not acquire ownership of any rights in our Developer Tools or the content that is accessed through our Developer Tools.
User Privacy and Security
You are solely responsible for the security of data in Your Applications. You will use commercially reasonable efforts to protect user information collected by Your Applications from unauthorized access or use and will promptly report to your users any unauthorized access or use of such information to the extent required by applicable law.
You will comply with all applicable privacy laws and regulations including those applying to personal data.

Unless otherwise specified in writing by Jack Henry, Jack Henry does not intend use of the Developer Tools to create obligations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, as amended ("HIPAA"), and makes no representations that the Developer Tools satisfy HIPAA requirements. If you are (or become) a "covered entity" or "business associate" as defined in HIPAA, you will not use the Developer Tools for any purpose or in any manner involving transmitting protected health information to Jack Henry unless you have received prior written consent to such use from Jack Henry.
Developer credentials are intended to be used by you and identify your Your Application. You will keep your credentials confidential and make reasonable efforts to prevent and discourage other Your Applications from using your credentials. Developer credentials may not be embedded in open source projects.
Our communications to you and our Developer Tools may contain Jack Henry confidential information. Jack Henry confidential information includes any materials, communications, and information that are marked confidential or that would normally be considered confidential under the circumstances. If you receive any such information, then you will not disclose it to any third party without Jack Henry's prior written consent. Jack Henry confidential information does not include information that you independently developed, that was rightfully given to you by a third party without confidentiality obligation, or that becomes public through no fault of your own. You may disclose Jack Henry confidential information when compelled to do so by law if you provide us reasonable prior notice, unless a court orders that we not receive notice.

Jack Henry hereby grants to you a nontransferable, nonsublicenseable, nonexclusive license while the Terms are in effect to display Jack Henry's Marks for the purpose of promoting or advertising that you use the Developer Tools as set forth in the Jack Henry Brand Guidelines. You will not make any statement regarding your use of a Developer Tool which suggests partnership with, sponsorship by, or endorsement by Jack Henry without Jack Henry's prior written approval.
In the course of promoting, marketing, or demonstrating the Developer Tools you are using and the associated Jack Henry services, Jack Henry may produce and distribute incidental depictions, including screenshots, video, or other content from Your Application, and may use your company or product name. You grant us all necessary rights for the such purposes.
You may stop using our Developer Tools at any time with or without notice. Further, if you want to terminate the Terms, you must provide Jack Henry with prior written notice and upon termination, cease your use of the applicable Developer Tools. Jack Henry reserves the right to terminate the Terms with you or discontinue the Developer Tools or any portion or feature or your access thereto for any reason and at any time without liability or other obligation to you.
Your Obligations Post-Termination
Upon any termination of the Terms or discontinuation of your access to a Developer Tool, you will immediately stop using the Developer Tool, cease all use of the Jack Henry Marks, and delete any cached or stored content that was permitted by the cache header. Jack Henry may independently communicate with any account owner whose account(s) are associated with Your Application and developer credentials to provide notice of the termination of your right to use a Developer Tool.
When the Terms come to an end, those terms that by their nature are intended to continue indefinitely will continue to apply, including but not limited to: Sections 4b, 5, 8, 9, and 10.
Liability for our Developer Tools
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THE TERMS, JACK HENRY DOES NOT MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE DEVELOPER TOOLS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE DEVELOPER TOOLS, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE DEVELOPER TOOLS "AS IS".

- any content or data routed into or used with the Developer Tools by you, those acting on your behalf, or your end users.
We may modify the Terms or any portion of the terms at any time. You should look at the Terms regularly. We'll post notice of modifications to the Terms within the documentation of each applicable Developer Tool and/or to this website. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than 30 days after they are posted. But changes addressing new functions for a Developer Tool or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified Terms for a Developer Tool, you should discontinue your use of that Developer Tool. Your continued use of the Developer Tool constitutes your acceptance of the modified Terms.
General Legal Terms
The Terms do not create any third party beneficiary rights or any agency, partnership, or joint venture. Nothing in the Terms will limit either party's ability to seek injunctive relief. We are not liable for failure or delay in performance to the extent caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If you do not comply with the Terms, and Jack Henry does not take action right away, this does not mean that Jack Henry is giving up any rights that it may have (such as taking action in the future). If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms. The Terms are the entire agreement between you and Jack Henry relating to its subject and supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements on that subject. For information about how to contact Jack Henry, please visit our contact page.
