To ensure the integrity, security, and proper functioning of ParityVend, the following restrictions apply:
- Restrictions related to the "Free" plan
- ParityVend branding requirement
This restriction applies to accounts that utilize the ParityVend "Free" plan or any other plans that are subject to this requirement, as explicitly stated in the plan's description. Accounts falling under this category are required to display ParityVend branding on each page where ParityVend services are used or accessed.
Branding Text: The ParityVend branding must include a clear and explicit statement that your website, service, or application uses ParityVend to provide enhanced pricing experiences for users. Additionally, it should briefly explain ParityVend's purpose. An example of such branding text can be found in ParityVend's No-Code branding text: "This fair pricing is powered by ParityVend. Take your business global with ParityVend's automatic geographical pricing."
Automatic Inclusion: For accounts using the ParityVend No-Code solution, ParityVend will automatically include the branding text in your banner. No additional action is required from your end.
Manual Compliance: Accounts using the ParityVend API must comply with this requirement manually. This includes incorporating the branding text on each page that uses or displays data powered by the ParityVend API. The branding text must be fully visible, not hidden, truncated, or otherwise diminished in readability. It should be located in a place on the page where users can easily read it.
Prohibited Actions: You must not take any steps to hide, intercept, remove, delete, or otherwise obscure the branding text.
Consequences of Non-Compliance: Failure to adhere to this requirement will result in a preliminary warning, following which you will be required to address the issue by including the branding text correctly, as described in this restriction. Continued non-compliance may result in the suspension, termination, or restriction of your access to ParityVend, which may be permanent.
