Client may authorize its employees, service providers and other third parties to access the Service with user credentials which access must be for the sole benefit of Client and in compliance with this Agreement. Client is responsible for such representatives compliance with this Agreement.
The software, workflow processes, user interface, designs, know-how, API (as defined herein) and other technologies provided by Freterium as part of the Service are the proprietary property of Freterium and its licensors, and all right, title and interest in and to such items, including all associated intellectual property rights, remain only with Freterium.

If any of these occur, Freterium can suspend or terminate Client’s access to the API on a temporary or permanent basis; Freterium will maintain and provide access to an API, unless it terminates the API for all customers with notice, as it is not technically feasible or economically viable to continue granting access to the API; and The API is provided on an ‘AS IS’ and ‘WHEN AVAILABLE’ basis. Freterium has no liability to Client as a result of any change, temporary unavailability, suspension, or termination of access to the API.
